Billy Joe Saunders and Saul “Canelo” Alvarez will be facing each other for a much-awaited super middleweight clash in Texas. Canelo, the current super middleweight champion, will take on Saunders, who is on a six-fight winning streak. His last loss was in 2013, where he fell to Floyd Mayweather by decision.
Since then, his fight vs Gennadiy Golovkin in 2016 was a draw. Saunders will be ready with an unbeaten record behind him. He played last December, winning against Martin Murray in a unanimous decision. Here is more on how to watch Canelo Alvarez vs Billy Joe Saunders live, the Canelo Alvarez vs Billy Joe Saunders schedule and the Canelo Alvarez vs Billy Joe Saunders fight purse –
This weekend’s Canelo vs Saunders live stream is a super middleweight unification bout, streaming live from Arlington, TX’s AT&T Stadium. And since Saul “Canelo” Alvarez is at the top of the card, you know that history is on the line.
A win here will vault the victor higher up the food chain, to a likely fight against IBF champion Caleb Plant, where the winner will be known as the undisputed super middleweight champion. And that would be a first for boxing.
Canelo walks into the fight like Thanos himself, a belt collecting madman, holding the super middleweight titles from the WBA (Super), WBC, and The Ring. He puts all that gold on the line for the chance to add Saunders’ WBO 168-pound title to his collection.
