Álvarez has fought 64 times and has a 60-2-2 record. He has won three straight fights since losing to Dmitry Bivol in May 2022 for the WBA light heavyweight crown. Álvarez will be participating on the weekend of Cinco de Mayo for the tenth time in his career and the fourth year in a row. In the nine prior fights, he is 8-1.

Munguía has a 43-0 record and 34 career knockouts. After stopping John Ryder by TKO in the ninth round on January 27 to keep the WBC Silver super middleweight title, this will be his second fight of the year.
