Canelo Álvarez is a scary dude.

Prior to his recent world super-middleweight title fight, the Mexican boxing champion walked out to the ring in formidable fashion, bringing out Latin music superstar J Balvin to pump him up and scare the poo out of Turkish challenger Avni Yildirim. J Balvin performed a live rendition of his global smash hit "Mi Gente," opting to use a remix by none other than Henry Fong, whose roaring moombahton version set the tone for a locked-in, vein-popping Alvarez.

It's no wonder Yildirim ended up getting knocked out. Check out the video below.

Álvarez, who is a world champion in four different weight classes, dominated Yildirim and eliminated him with a technical knockout in the fourth round of the bout at Miami's Hard Rock Stadium. He had flattened Yildirim with a mighty left-right combination to the head in the round prior. Álvarez improved to a record of 55-1-2 with the victory, with 37 knockouts under his historic belt.
