As their fight gets closer, Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez’s disdain for Billy Joe Saunders’ antics is seemingly growing by the day. The super middleweight world champions having to be pulled apart following a heated faceoff Wednesday is proof of that.
Well, that increasing animosity will come to a head Saturday night, when Alvarez clashes with Saunders in their super middleweight championship unification bout at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Tex. and live on DAZN. Canelo’s WBA (Super), WBC, and The Ring super middleweight titles, along with Saunders’ WBO 168-pound title, will be on the line.
Leading up to the fight, Canelo promises to make an example out of the brash Saunders, as to how trash talking him before a fight can go wrong once the bell rings.
“Ready to make a statement this Saturday,” Alvarez tweeted Wednesday.
Meanwhile, Saunders vows that Canelo has never fought a caliber of boxer quite like him and that he intends to prove that this weekend.
“You’ve never been in the ring with someone like me,” Saunders told the boxing superstar face-to-face Wednesday. “You’ve never seen anybody with this [pointing to his heart].”
Saturday night’s winner will look to book a fight with IBF champion Caleb Plant for a shot to secure world super middleweight undisputed glory.

Álvarez, 30, has developed his own fighting style, it is, and one should rarely use this term: complete. He continues to box aggressively, so hardly wait, he has a lot of power in his punches, especially in his hooks to the body. But he also swings his head and body, so that it is now the opponents who keep seeing their blows flying into the void. (Canelo’s biggest weakness: his legs are not the fastest.) Álvarez is now adapting his strategy from round to round, reacting to his opponents’ tactics and demonstrating that he, at the age of 15, had his first professional fight had denied, behaved as intelligently in the ring as very few.
Álvarez showed his most mature performance to date last December against British super middleweight Callum Smith. It was 18 centimeters larger, had 19 centimeters more range, and one of the most dangerous left hooks in professional boxing; he went into battle as world champion of the WBA. Álvarez, however, danced, marched, waggled his head and torso and was therefore as difficult to hit as Mayweather was once for him; at the same time, he was likely to hit every legal square inch of his opponent. So he hit his left arm again and again with full force and thus took the strength from Smith’s hook. Shortly before the end of the fight, Smith himself pointed at his arm, it was a bow to Canelo’s strategy: You showed me off.
Álvarez’s knockout rate has dropped from 71 percent to 43 percent since the Mayweather fight, but he has hardly been in serious trouble since then – despite consistently facing opponents from the front row of boxing. He boxed against Gennady Golowkin, the toughest middleweight puncher, in 2017 and 2018; the draw in the first fight was perhaps still flattering for Canelo, but in the rematch he proved his courage: he put Golowkin in the middle of the ring, did not let himself be driven into the ropes, but rather exchanged blows; and because he was already commuting a lot back then, in the end he just won, but not undeservedly. Immediately afterwards, he was now the best marketable boxer, he signed a contract with the streaming portal Dazn, which guaranteed him 365 million dollars for eleven fights for the rights in the USA alone. In autumn 2020, after a violent legal dispute with the streaming service and its promoter Golden Boy, he agreed to dissolve this contract; the fight against Saunders is the last in which Álvarez is tied to Dazn.
Since the duel against Smith, he has been working with the British promotion company Matchroom, so far only with combat-related contracts; but he has already indicated that he has nothing against further cooperation. “What fascinates me about him is that he always wants to box the strongest opponent,” says Frank Smith, CEO of Matchroom, “he doesn’t just want to win, he always thinks of his legacy, of his place in boxing history.” That’s why Álvarez boxed Mayweather, that’s why he boxed Golowkin twice, that’s why he’s boxing Billy Joe Saunders this Saturday.
The big goal: To be the first to own all super middleweight titles
The 31-year-old Briton is considered the toughest possible opponent for Álvarez in the super middleweight division. Unlike Callum Smith, he is only five centimeters taller, but technically and tactically he is almost complete. He also humiliates his opponents by smoothly dodging blows, and he himself also hits hard and variably. “Billy Joe is the strongest physically opponent Canelo has boxed so far, it really is an incredibly even fight,” says Frank Smith, who works with Saunders with Matchroom. “But if you look at Canelos power and his experience, then maybe he has slight advantages.”
Saunders knows that he is the outsider, in fights on the so-called Cinco-de-Mayo weekend people should, according to the planned dramaturgy, celebrate a Mexican. At the first meeting in Dallas on Wednesday, the Briton showed how he wants to prevent that: He provoked Álvarez with trash talk, and that is probably his greatest chance: that Álvarez will get angry, too brave, too aggressive. But Canelo reacted (still) cool to the provocations, he wrote on Instagram: “Menos palabras, más acción”. Less talk, more action. He doesn’t think of a defeat anyway, he prefers to talk about the plan to box the American Caleb Plant in the fall in order to be the first to own all the super middleweight titles.
It is not megalomania that Álvarez thinks that way. It’s the healthy self-esteem of those who know that the nickname they got as a teased boy on the street is no longer an insult. They called him Canelo then.
