Get ready for one of the biggest fights of the year when Saul 'Canelo' Alvarez will finally take on Billy Joe Saunders in an attempt to become the undisputed super middleweight champion of the world and we have all the details on how you can watch Canelo vs Saunders online.
Canelo has a lot to lose in tonight's fight as he's laying down his WBC, WBA, and Ring Magazine super middleweight belts on the line to take on Saunders who is currently the WBO super middleweight champion in a 12 round match.
While Canelo hasn't lost a fight since 2013 when he was defeated by Floyd Mayweather Jr. by majority decision, Saunders has yet to lose a single fight throughout the entirety of his 12-year career. During his last fight in December, Canelo defeated Callum Smith by unanimous decision earning him the WBC, WBA, and Ring Magazine titles. He later defended his titles against Avni Yildirim back in February. Saunders on the other hand also won his last fight against Martin Murray by unanimous decision during December of last year.
Tonight's fight was originally scheduled to be held in Las Vegas back in May of 2020 but it was called off due to the pandemic. It was then rescheduled for September but contract disputes and Saunders saying he wouldn't be ready in time led to it being pushed back once again. Now though, boxing fans will finally get a chance to see the two meet in the ring.
However, Canelo vs Saunders isn't the only title fight on tonight's card as Elwin Soto will go up against Katsunari Takayama in a junior flyweight title bout.
Whether you're rooting for Canelo or for Saunders, tonight's fight will go down in the history books and we'll show you how to watch Canelo vs Saunders from anywhere in the world so you don't miss a second of the action.
