Canelo Alvarez and Billy Joe Saunders go head-to-head on May 8 as the Brit's undefeated record faces it's sternest test yet in front of 70,000 in Texas. Will Saunders stage an upset, or will Canelo unify the WBO, WBA, WBC and The Ring super middleweight titles?
Billy Joe Saunders will put his undefeated record on the line when he squares up to Canelo Alvarez in Saturday’s Cinco de Mayo showdown in Texas.
Saunders, who is 30-0 heading into his first fight of 2021, is aiming to add Canelo’s WBA, WBC and The Ring super middleweight titles to his WBO belt in front of more than 70,000 fans at the AT&T Stadium.
It means Alvarez will move a step closer to becoming undisputed world super middleweight champion if he can pick off Saunders, with Caleb Plant’s IBF belt then the final piece of the puzzle.
The Mexican (55-1-2) has already outclassed Avni Yildirim this year, stopping the Turk in the third round after dropping his mandatory challenger to the canvas with a brutal combination.
Despite Saunders’ unbeaten record, he will have to defy the odds to upset an opponent who goes in as the overwhelming favourite. On the other side of the ring, Alvarez will be determined to rubber-stamp his status as the leading pound-for-pound boxer on the planet.
