Note to self: Do not take a body punch from the pound-for-pound best boxer on the planet.
That’s what one Barstool sports employee would find out.
Last week, finance blogger Michael McCarthy AKA ‘Large’ posted a picture on Twitter of a toilet full of blood and urine.

According to The Sun, the Barstool Sports employee visited Canelo at his fight camp in San Diego, CA. Large wore a body belt and allowed Alvarez to punch him repeatedly.
After taking the first punch, Large said, “That’s full speed? That’s fu*ing terrible, I’m gonna be pissing blood.”
And that he did—Large pissed blood. I’m pretty sure taking a punch from the best boxer on the planet is going to be something he will not be doing from now on.
Canelo Alvarez vs. Dmitry Bivol
Alvarez returns to action on May 7 against WBA super light heavyweight champion Dmitry Bivol at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, NV. The Mexican fighter is coming off an 11th round TKO win over Caleb Planet in which he unified all four major world titles to become undisputed super middleweight champion.
