Watch boxing’s pound-for-pound king take on yet another formidable and undefeated champion opponent live, Saturday May 7.
Undisputed super-middleweight champion Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez has won belts in four divisions – so far – and he returns to light heavyweight in the pursuit of more glory when he faces Dmitry Bivol, with DAZN showing the fight in most regions.
If Canelo defeats the unbeaten Bivol then he is expected to return to 168lbs in order to make a trilogy rematch with Gennadiy Golovkin, but he has suggested he could then attempt to win the remaining three belts at 175lbs.
Canelo battles on Saturday, May 7 when he takes on WBA (Super) light-heavyweight champion Dmitry Bivol. A fight with the winner of Joe Smith Jr. vs. Artur Beterbiev could be in the works down the line.
