CANELO ALVAREZ was so sure he had the beating of Caleb Plant that he had a special 'undisputed' jacket made to celebrate the victory.
The 31-year-old Mexican collected the fourth and final super-middleweight belt to become the king of the division with an 11th round stoppage of his American opponent in Las Vegas.
And Canelo basked in the glory of his accomplishment as the first ever undisputed champion in the weight class by showing off his new item of clothing.
On the jacket it read: "Undisputed super-middleweight champion 2021."
Alvarez's latest victory is the third super-middleweight title fight he has won in just 11 months.
He defeated Callum Smith in December 2020, before then stopping Avni Yildirim and Billy Joe Saunders in the first half of this year.
Yet despite the incredible achievements and special jacket, Canelo remained humble when reacting to his momentous win.
He said: "I want to thank everyone here tonight. It hasn't been easy to get to this point.
"But with your support, my family, my team, we've got really far. This is for everybody, especially in Mexico.
"My respect for Caleb Plant. He's a terrific fighter with a lot of ability.
"We're men at the end. He wanted to still fight me, he wanted to still continue. And there's no shame, we had a great fight today.
"But of course, we came out on top."
Along with his super-middleweight belts, Canelo has also won world titles at light-middleweight, middleweight and light-heavyweight.

It remains to be seen what the Mexican's next challenge will be as he continues this sensational unbeaten run.
Canelo has not lost a fight since he was outboxed by Floyd Mayweather in 2013.
In the eight years that have followed, he has racked up some superb victories against the likes of Gennady Golovkin, Danny Jacobs, Sergey Kovalev, Saunders, Smith and now Plant.
