Mexican pound-for-pound legend Canelo last hit the ring in November when he knocked out US pro Caleb "Sweethands" Plant in the 11th round to take possession of all four super-middleweight (168lbs) titles and become "the undisputed".

Now Canelo has set his sights on Dmitry Bovil's light-heavyweight strap. It's not Canelo's first rodeo, mind – the Mexican previously stepped up to light-heavyweight (175lbs) in 2019, knocking out Sergey Kovalev to win the WBO title. If Canelo can can defeat Bivol he'll likely set up a trilogy fight against two-time rival Gennady Golovkin.

Bivol represents a much tougher challenge than Kovalev, however. The 20,000-strong crowd at the T-Mobile Arena will be mostly cheering for Canelo, but the Kyrgyz-born Russian professional has proved he's a dangerous opponent, beating Joe Smith Jr prior to cruising past Umar Salamov on points four months ago.
