Canelo Alvarez and Dmitry Bivol are set for Saturday, so here’s how you can watch!
Canelo Alvarez will return to the ring on Saturday, May 7, facing Dmitry Bivol in the main event from T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, as boxing’s hot schedule just keeps cooking.
Canelo (57-1-2, 39 KO) will be the title challenger in this fight, not an unfamiliar position for him. The 31-year-old Mexican superstar hasn’t taken a loss since his 2013 defeat against Floyd Mayweather, and will be looking to notch his ninth straight win, his last blemish coming in a 2017 draw with Gennadiy Golovkin.
Bivol (19-0, 11 KO) is the noted underdog, but a true, top 175 lb fighter, and many believe — especially inside of boxing — that the Russian could be a major challenge for Canelo, and at the very least end a run of pretty clear dominance in recent fights.
