"This is just a step in my career, all I asked was for you to be patient, I will make history," he said after his victory.

"The key was to be patient, we knew it would be five or six rounds and I would take time to get to him, he's a great fighter, much credit to him, but we stuck to our game plan.

"It was a very close fight, he was defensive, closing up, all he was doing was to establish points, it was tough. But it all came out as we planned.

"We have to relax a bit, the plan was to go back down, but why not stay here? Let's see what's next in 2020, we want to deliver the biggest fights to the people."

Here's reaction to the KO.

OFFICIAL RESULT: Canelo def. Kovalev by knockout in Round 11.
