The four-weight boxing champ was set to fight Avni Yildirim for the WBC super-middleweight world title.

Despite the distractions, Canelo showed he is still keeping in shape ahead of his next fight.

He uploaded a shot of him in a boxing ring displaying his impressive abs, captioning it "just keep going".

Canelo, 30, has not fought since moving up to light-heavyweight in November, where he knocked out Sergey Kovalev to take home the WBO belt.

The Athletic have obtained a copy of the civil complaint from Canelo filed in LA at the US district court for the central district of California.

The dispute centres around the payment of the £27m he is guaranteed per fight.

And in a statement given to The Athletic, Alvarez said: "I’m the pound-for-pound No1 in the world.

"I’m not scared of any opponent in the ring, and I’m not going to let failures of my broadcaster or promoters keep me out of the ring.

"I filed the lawsuit so I can get back to boxing and give my fans the show they deserve."

The four-weight world champ's lawsuit claims Golden Boy Promotions and Dazn have caused a minimum of £216m of damages.
