The great Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez will return to the light heavyweight division tonight to challenge for the WBA title against undefeated champion Dmitry Bivol.
Canelo has enjoyed an incredible few years, claiming world titles at different weights and against all manner of opponents.
He beat Caleb Plant last November to add the WBO super middleweight title to his stunning collection.
The Mexican currently boasts a record of 57 wins and one defeat and is determined to claim more gold off Bivol.
The unbeaten Russian has held the WBA strap since November 2017 and retained the belt by beating Umar Salamov last December.
But he has not fought anyone of Canelo’s calibre and will be in for a huge test in Las Vegas on Saturday night.
Friday’s weigh-in saw Bivol tips the scales first and come in at 174.6 pounds while Canelo was 174.4 pounds.
