Canelo vs Saunders Preview
Álvarez (55-1-2, 37 KOs) last fought 39 days ago, when he outlanded mandatory challenger Avni Yildirim 67-11 across three rounds before Yildirim’s corner threw in the towel. It was Álvarez’s sixth consecutive victory and 14th straight bout without a defeat; he drew with Gennady Golovkin in September 2017 then took a decision victory over him a year later for the WBA and WBC middleweight belts.
A win over Saunders (30-0, 14 KOs) would mark Álvarez’s second defense of the WBA and WBC super middleweight titles he claimed by besting Callum Smith via unanimous decision in December 2020. He’s won world championships in four weight classes.
The Guadalajara native’s only professional defeat came in September 2013, when he succumbed to Floyd Mayweather Jr. by majority decision. Saunders, a former WBO middleweight titlist, captured the WBO super middleweight title with a unanimous decision over Shefat Isufi in May 2019.
