Super middleweight champions Canelo Alvarez and unbeaten Billy Joe Saunders will finally touch gloves and figure out control of the 168-pound division on Saturday.
Central to what the fight will actually look like inside AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas, is whether Saunders (30-0-1, 14 KOs) presents just another challenge in a line of necessary hurdles needing cleared for Alvarez (55-1-2, 37 KOs) to become the division’s undisputed champion or whether the brash southpaw from the U.K. actually represents much more as the key protagonist in a potential trap-fight scenario for boxing’s pound-for-pound best fighter.
The event starts at 8pm and will be shown on DAZN.
