Canelo Gets $9M Lawsuit Over Alleged Mexican Street Fight

Canelo Alvarez is back in the news, but for the wrong reasons.

TMZ Sports is reporting that a Mexican boxer is suing Alvarez for $9 million over a street fight in Mexico back in from 2011.

The man behind the lawsuit is Ulises Solis — a former IBF light flyweight champ — who claims Alvarez beat him up during an altercation in Guadalajara.

According to the suit, Alvarez punched Solis in the face so hard — he knocked out a tooth and fractured Solis’ jaw.

As a result, Solis claims he was stripped of his IBF championship belt because he couldn’t defend his title with a broken jaw.

Solis claims he was simply outsized in the fight — with Canelo coming in a 5’9″, 160 lbs and Solis at 5’3″, 108 lbs.

In his suit, Solis claims he suffered more than $4 million in damages — plus he wants another $5 mil in punitives.

We’ve learned trial proceedings have begun — jury selection started on Monday — and the trial could wrap by the end of the month.

We reached out to Canelo’s camp for comment — so far, no word back.
