CANELO ALVAREZ posed next to Max Verstappen as the sporting champions linked up.
Dutchman Verstappen is still celebrating his first-ever but controversial Formula One title winning season.

It comes just weeks after Verstappen, 24, pipped Britain’s Lewis Hamilton, 36, to the 2021 F1 title – but in dramatic and disputed fashion.
The pair went into the final race of the season at Yas Marina LEVEL on points, with Hamilton seemingly coasting to victory with five laps left.
But a late Safety Car after a Nicholas Latifi crash cued the most incredible finish, with Verstappen controversially overtaking Hamilton with one lap left.
Mercedes protested the result on two counts, but were rebuffed by F1 chiefs and chose not to appeal the decision.

In the space of 11 months, he beat Callum Smith, 31, Avni Yildirim, 30, Billy Joe Saunders, 32, and Caleb Plant, 29.
But in an unprecedented move, Canelo is now braced to move up more than TWO STONE and two divisions to cruiserweight.
