Canelo Alvarez scores devastating 6th-round knockout of Amir Khan

Middleweight champion Canelo Alvarez was having a lot of problems with the speed and movement of Amir Khan, just the way Khan and his team planned. And then Alvarez connected.

Alvarez landed a monster right hand to Khan's chin in the sixth round, and that was it as he brutally knocked Khan out on Saturday night in the main event of the first boxing card at the new T-Mobile Arena.

The largely Mexican crowd cheering Alvarez on during Cinco de Mayo weekend erupted and Alvarez had retained the 160-pound world title in his first defense six months after taking it by unanimous decision from Miguel Cotto. Alvarez and Khan fought at a catchweight of 155 pounds.

Sitting ringside was unified titleholder Gennady Golovkin, the fearsome puncher who, by virtue of his interim belt, looms as Alvarez's mandatory challenger. They made a deal with the WBC under which both would take interim fights and then fight in September. Golovkin blew away Dominic Wade in two rounds on April 23 and then Alvarez smashed Khan.

Well, the way they make shows is, they make one show. That show's called a pilot. Then they show that show to the people who make shows, and on the strength of that one show they decide if they're going to make more shows.

Like you, I used to think the world was this great place where everybody lived by the same standards I did, then some kid with a nail showed me I was living in his world, a world where chaos rules not order, a world where righteousness is not rewarded. That's Cesar's world, and if you're not willing to play by his rules, then you're gonna have to pay the price.

You think water moves fast? You should see ice. It moves like it has a mind. Like it knows it killed the world once and got a taste for murder. After the avalanche, it took us a week to climb out. Now, I don't know exactly when we turned on each other, but I know that seven of us survived the slide... and only five made it out. Now we took an oath, that I'm breaking now. We said we'd say it was the snow that killed the other two, but it wasn't. Nature is lethal but it doesn't hold a candle to man.

You see? It's curious. Ted did figure it out - time travel. And when we get back, we gonna tell everyone. How it's possible, how it's done, what the dangers are. But then why fifty years in the future when the spacecraft encounters a black hole does the computer call it an 'unknown entry event'? Why don't they know? If they don't know, that means we never told anyone. And if we never told anyone it means we never made it back. Hence we die down here. Just as a matter of deductive logic.
