His parents are Ana María Barragán and Santos Álvarez. His parents and siblings can be seen here:

Might that be Irish blood? That is the tantalising possibility.
That one of his ancestors hails back more than 160 years to a battalion of fighting Irishmen who went to battle for Mexico in the War of Independence against America. It is a theory to which Alvarez himself subscribes. The members of that unit were dubbed Los Hijos de San Patrico, which in turn translates as The Sons Of St Patrick, and Canelo says: ‘There might well have been an Irish great-great-grandfather of mine back then in the 1800s.’

He is not irish and he is not mestizo. Look at his parents and brothers.
He is Spanish-Mexican (I would say at least 95%) and as a Spanish myself i have some redhaired relatives and friends, and there are Spanish 100%.

“CORRECTION” He is obviously Spanish-Mexican. Mexican is not an ethnicity, he is white and he has two Spanish surnames so he has Spanish ancestors. Maybe he could have a little amerindian blood or some other european blood but there arent evidences of it and would be insignificant (less than 10%)
He is here with his six brothers (you could find people with their features in any Spanish place):
