Canelo compared to Thanos for 'collecting belts like infinity stones' after all-but unifying middleweight division following Jacobs win

UNIFIED MIDDLEWEIGHT world champion Saul “Canelo” Alvarez was compared to Thanos after the Mexican star collected “belts like infinity stones”.

Canelo, 28, beat Daniel Jacobs, 32, in Las Vegas on Saturday night to add the IBF title to his WBC and WBA middleweight crowns.

After the win the ginger haired maestro was captured holding his collection of belts and fans likened the champion to Thanos from Marvel's Infinity War.

In the Avengers film Thanos collects infinity stones to conquer the universe – and fans joked that Canelo is collecting belts to rule boxing.

One said: "Canelo out here collecting like Thanos."

Another said: "Canelo is Thanos in the middle weight division collecting all the belts like infinity stones."

One commented: "Canelo has one more belt to collect to be undisputed he is the thanos of the boxing world let’s go."

Another commented: "Canelo has all four infinity belts he is now thanos."
