BOXING: APR 20 Alvarez v Trout
April 20 2013: Saul Canelo Alvarez(right) battles Austin Trout at the Alamodome in San Antonio, TX.

In sports there are certain events that the world unifies in excitement for. We have exactly that kind of event tonight as Canelo Alvarez takes on Billy Joe Saunders to unify the Super Middleweight titles from AT&T Stadium in Arlington TX, home of the Dallas Cowboys.

Canelo will put the WBC, WBA Super, and Ring Magazine titles on the line with a record of (54-1-2 36 KOs). The only loss of his career came to Floyd Mayweather in September 2013. Billy Joe Saunders will put the WBO title on the line and with a record of (30-0 14 KOs) & will present a very powerful challenger for Canelo.

The last time there was buzz surrounding unifying belts was in October 2020 when Teofimo Lopez took down Vasyl Lomachenko for the lightweight titles

This fight is going to set the attendance record for any boxing event in the USA and also during COVID-19. The record that was originally set when Muhammad Ali took on Leon Spinks at the Superdome in New Orleans in 1978 which had a crowd of 63,352. The fight on Saturday at AT&T Stadium is expected to have a crowd of over 70,000.

The Final Staredown:


The Main Card will begin at 8PM Eastern and the Main Event is scheduled to begin around 11 PM and LIVE on DAZN

Main Card:

I think this is going to be one of those fight that you will always remember, especially due to the record crowd unprecedented times. I believe this fight will go all 12 rounds with Canelo coming out on top.
