Canelo retained his WBC, WBA and Ring Magazine super-middleweight titles in February when he beat Turkey’s Avni Yildirim, while Saunders (30-0, 14 KOs) defeated Shefat Isufi to capture the vacant WBO championship belt in May 2019.

After some disagreement about the size of the ring (Saunders briefly threatened to fly home) both fighters are now ready to grace the AT&T Stadium, which will play host to a 60,000 boxing fans. (You can buy Canelo vs Saunders tickets for $40.)

Heavyweight champion Tyson Fury has arrived in Texas and says Saunders has what it takes to outfox the 30-year-old Mexican:

"Canelo Alvarez’s kryptonite is someone who boxes and moves — southpaw, slick, good feet, good hand speed, good power. Billy Joe Saunders does all of that. He will give him a boxing lesson, smash him, stop him in round 11 or 12... I've never been as confident about anything in my life."

The bookmakers disagree – as does 'Iron' Mike Tyson. The tiger-hugging pigeon fancier claims Saunders is "already knocked out". Perhaps he missed Saunders' demolition of Chris Eubank Jr? 

Today's unmissable fight is exclusive to DAZN but it's much cheaper in some countries than in others. Here's how to find a Canelo vs Saunders free live stream from anywhere in the world.

Billy Joe Saunders on Canelo Alvarez

"You've never been in the ring with someone like me. You've never seen anybody with this heart."

"This fight is all about the brain. Not about power, muscle or skill, it's the brain and the game plan, and being able to execute that game plan.

"I’m not going to sit here and slag people off and big people up. Canelo has been doing it for many, many years now, destroying everyone. Six of those were Brits. I don’t really take anything from any of them because I do my own thing.

“That’s what’s going to win this fight, something I bring to the table that none of them had. Hatton did a good job many years ago, Ryan Rhodes also. I still haven’t watched the Callum Smith fight now, I’ve seen highlights.

“But I think tactics may have been a little bit wrong there and a bit rushed because they didn’t have a lot of preparation for it. That’s what I hear anyway."

Canelo Alvarez on Billy Joe Saunders

"It's always been 20ft and now he wants 24ft," Alvarez told 5 Live Boxing after the dispute over the size of the ring. "If he wants I will give him the whole stadium. I don't care.

"He's been talking a lot about me for the last four years. In a couple of days it will happen and it's a little more personal."
