Alejandro Fernanadez vs Saul Canelo

Mexican musician Alejandro Fernández will be there to support boxer Saul Canelo lvarez on Saturday night in Las Vegas. They will likely make an appearance together on the approach to the ring if they do so.

Sources indicate that Fernandez may offer assistance to Alvarez on Saturday, when the latter competes against Gennady Golovkin at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, in search of his second victory over Golovkin.

Because Sa’l knows Alejandro Fernandez’s father, Vicente, and Canelo has a long-standing relationship with the colt, both of these relationships trace back many years. The two frequently divided Vicente’s holdings amongst themselves, and they also generously bestowed gifts upon one another.

On the other hand, during the incredible fight that will determine who wins the WBC, IBF, WBA, and WBO titles for the 160-pound division, singer Carolina Ross will play the Mexican national anthem. This fight will take place before the main event.

Is he already facing Saul?

Saul Alvarez reminded Gennady Golovkin that Floyd Mayweather Jr. had been the most difficult opponent he had faced during his career, despite the fact that they had already fought each other twice. Golovkin was one of the two boxers who had been victorious over him. This time, Alvarez enticed the Kazakh boxer by putting his finger on the sensitive place and doing it intentionally.

Despite this, Canelo Lvarez acknowledged the Kazakh’s strength and the fact that he and the Kazakh had his greatest rivalry. In fact, the Kazakh will be the first opponent that Canelo Lvarez will face for a third time after they fought to a draw in their first fight and won in a contentious fight in their second fight.

Career

Early years

Alejandro Fernández was born in Guadalajara, Jalisco. In 1976, he made his debut in the magnificent performance, which happened to be one of his father’s presentations at the time.

Under the label of Sony Music, Fernández released his debut studio album titled Alejandro Fernández. The songs “Necesito olvidarla,” “Brumas,” and “Equivocadamente” were its most successful singles. Alejandro embarked on a tour across Mexico and other locations in the United States, bringing this content along with him. During the year 1993, he gave a concert at the Palacio de los Deportes alongside his father. After that, he continued his career in Mexico City at the Teatro Blanquita for a season. In the same year, Alejandro and Pedro Ramrez collaborated to develop and distribute the critically acclaimed album Piel de Nia. Some of the album’s most successful singles are “Piel de Nia,” “A La Vera del Camino,” and “Cascos Ligeros.” In 1993, Fernández was nominated for the Lo Nuestro Awards in the categories of Male Artist, New Artist, and Regional Mexican Album of the Year for his debut album. However, he did not win any of these categories.

1994 saw the release of his album Grandes Éxitos a la Manera de Alejandro Fernández, which featured renditions of works by illustrious composers such as Armando Manzanero, Luis Demetrio, and Agustn Lara. Fernández was recognized as a potential winner in the category of Regional Mexican Male Performer of the Year at the 9th Annual Lo Nuestro Awards.

2011–present: “Hoy Tengo Ganas de Ti”, Confidencias, Rompiendo Fronteras

In 2011, he embarked on the Dos Mundos: Revolucion Tour, which lasted from June till August. The song “Bajo un mismo sol,” which was written by Alejandro and released on August 1, 2011, was chosen to serve as the official theme song for the 2011 Pan American Games. Dos Mundos, un Concierto was the name of the concert series that he participated in around Latin America alongside fellow artist Marc Anthony (Two Worlds, one Concert). Alejandro and Christina Aguilera worked together to create a cover version of the song “Hoy Tengo Ganas de Ti,” which was later used as the theme music for the soap opera “La tempestad.” With 65,000 sales coming from digital downloads, the song was declared platinum in Mexico after only 17 days of being available there.

Confidencias, his album, was published on August 27th, 2013, under his own name. Duets with Rod Stewart and Vicente Fernández are also included on this album, in addition to the duet that was recorded with Christina Aguilera. His song “Te Amare” was selected to serve as the theme music for the soap drama “Hasta el end del world” in 2014, taking the place of Pedro Fernández’s earlier work in that capacity. In 2015, Alejandro worked with Alejandro Sanz on a rendition of the song “A que no me dejas,” which was later used as the theme song for the soap series A que no me dejas. Alejandro’s version of the song was published in 2015. The Billboard Latin Music Hall of Fame recognized Fernández’s achievements and inducted him that same year (2016). The album Rompiendo Fronteras was released by him in February of 2017, and the single “Sé que te duele” became an immediate hit after its release.

Sony Music controversy

Alejandro Fernández filed a lawsuit against the worldwide record firm Sony Music after the label attempted to release an album containing some of his previously unreleased tracks after the terms of his contract with the label had expired.

A little over 6,000 copies of the album were taken away by the Federal Police as they arrived at the Sony offices in Mexico City. As the first single from the album, the song “Diferente” was made available for download on the internet.

Personal life

Although he was born in Mexico City, Fernández spent his childhood in Guadalajara. He initially planned on becoming an architect, but in 1991, with his father’s encouragement, he decided to pursue a career in singing instead. He is his family’s youngest son and the only son. He is the youngest of three children; his older brothers are Vicente Jr. and Gerardo, and he has a sister named Alejandra. “Los trois potrillos” is a nickname that he and his brothers have earned in Mexico (The three colts).

In the late 1990s, Fernández’s older brother Vicente, Jr. was taken hostage by a group of individuals who were involved in organized crime. As a form of retribution, his captors severed one of his fingers and gave it to his family as a warning. Vicente Fernández allegedly paid a significant sum of money in order to secure the release of Vicente Fernández Jr. The precise sum was never disclosed to the public.

The shopping mall in Guadalajara known as “Unicenter” is co-owned by Fernández. It is home to a number of different establishments and provides employment to close to 170 people. It was a joint effort between him and his family that resulted in the creation of the 11,000-person capacity Arena VFG. The majority of the events that take place here are charreria competitions and musical concerts. Fernández is a master when it comes to charreria and riding horses. He is a big fan of the Mexican football team Atlas, and he has a close relationship with the legendary football player Rafael Márquez.

Fernández is a father to five children; three of them were born to him and his ex-wife América Guinart (Alejandro, Jr. and their twin daughters América and Camila), while the other two were born to him with Colombian model Ximena Dáz (Emiliano and Valentina). Around the middle of the 2000s, he made the claim that he had a vasectomy.
