An early candidate for biggest fight of the year will put four belts on the line as Saul “Canelo” Alvarez takes on Billy Joe Saunders in Arlington, Texas.
Canelo (WBA, WBC and The Ring) and Saunders (WBO) will put their super middleweight titles on the line in an attempt to unify the title. Whoever wins Saturday’s match will likely turn to Caleb Plant, owner of the IBF belt, in September. But first, the matter at hand.
Canelo (55-1-2, 37 KOs) will look for his seventh consecutive victory after his split-decision draw with Gennadiy Golovkin in September 2017. Saunders (30-0, 14 KOs) will risk his undefeated record in an attempt to claim Canelo’s belts.
