Saul "Canelo" Alvarez notched a 12-round unanimous decision victory over Austin Trout Saturday to unify the World Boxing Council and World Boxing Association light middleweight titles.
Mexico's Alvarez remained unbeaten, improving to 42-0-1 with 30 knockouts as he retained his WBC title and handed Trout the first defeat of his career to capture the American's WBA belt.
"This is for my brother," said Alvarez, whose brother Rigoberto was beaten by Trout in 2011 for the vacant WBA light middlewight crown. "It was a big motivation for this fight."
