Dubrovnik is definitely no stranger to famous visitors. Throughout its long history, this city welcomed well-known guests from all fields of human endeavour. For locals, it is interesting simply to wait and see which familiar face will appear in the city next.

Many rich and famous people arrive in Dubrovnik trying to pass „under the radar“ with varying degrees of success. Others are open about their experiences and promote the city on their social media outlets. One such visitor to Dubrovnik is Saul „Canelo“ Alvarez. This Mexican-born boxing world champion is currently spending his honeymoon in Dubrovnik, enjoying the city vistas. His bride Fernanda Gomez is a business owner with quite a following on Instagram herself, although her 900,000 followers pale in comparison with her husband’s 9.5 million. The couple is enjoying themselves in Dubrovnik and is happy to share that with the world. It is the kind of PR all destinations are hoping for.

Impressive Career

Alvarez has won a number of world champion titles in several weight categories. He currently holds a world champion title in the super middleweight category under WBA (Super), WBC, WBO, and Ring Magazine titles. Dubrovacki vjesnik reports he earned around €150 million during his career so far, making him one of the best-paid fighters in the world. There was a controversy surrounding his last contract with DAZN which was worth an astounding 365 million. The money was guaranteed to Alvarez for the agreed 11 matches. He backed out of the deal claiming breach of contract by DAZN.

Regardless of the financial side of the story, Saul “Canelo” Alvarez currently remains one of the most interesting and successful boxers. He has 59 official fights under his belt out of which he won 56 and only lost once. He managed to record 38 wins by knockout.
