Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez returns to the ring today to defend his WBC and WBA super middleweight titles against Avni Yildirim in Miami. The big fight costs up to $50 in the US, but savvy sports streaming service DAZN has the rights to show the clash in 200 countries – and from only £1.99 in the UK! The undercard is well underway. Read on to find out how to watch the action tonight from the Hard Rock Stadium and get a good price Canelo vs Yildirim live stream wherever you are in the world.
Canelo has only ever been defeated as a professional by the legendary Floyd Mayweather, a result that took place way back in 2013. No surprise, then, that the WBA (Super), WBC and The Ring super-middleweight champion is a huge favourite for this blockbuster fight.
The Mexican star out-punched Callum Smith in a stunning display last December to enter the champions' enclosure at 168lbs. If he can defeat Turkey's Avni Yildirim on Saturday, he could unify the division just two months after picking up his belts, and tee up a massive fight against against Billy Joe Saunders this summer.
Yildirim is a good fighter but he got knocked out by Chris Eubank Jr in three rounds. He's a low level threat to a fighter of the calibre of Canelo and will do well to last all 12 rounds of this super-middleweight clash.
Here's how to get a Canelo vs Yildirim live stream, one of the most anticipated fights of the year, from anywhere in the world.
