FIGHT WEEKEND IS HERE
CANELO ALVAREZ and Billy Joe Saunders fight in a massive Cinco de Mayo clash in Texas this weekend.
The WBA, WBC and WBO super-middleweight world titles are on the line in front of 60,00 fans at the AT&T Stadium.
Saunders has seemingly got under the skin of the usually cool Canelo this week, with the Brit at one stage refusing to fight over the size of the ring.
The ring dilemma has been resolved and the fight is ON!
We’ll be bringing you round-by-round latest coverage of the big fight, and will be starting proceedings here with updates from what could be a very heated weigh-in tonight.
Canelo said this week of his rival: “90 per cent of the people don't like him. “This fight is different because he has four years talking s* about me.
“Before the first Golovkin fight he was there talking s* about me. That's why it is different for me. I'm the same way. My mind is calm. Saturday night it is going to be different, he is in a different level fight now. He's going to see what is going to happen.
“This isn't like [Martin] Murray or other guys he has fought before. I feel a little better, that motivates me more."
