Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez and Billy Joe Saunders clash in an intriguing super middleweight bout in Texas on Saturday.

Unified super middleweight titleholder Canelo (55-1-2, 37 KOs) is on a six-fight win streak ahead of the main-event meeting, having been handed the sole defeat of his career in 2013 when he was outpointed by Floyd Mayweather, with a draw against Gennadiy Golovkin five years ago the only blemish on the 30-year-old’s record since then.

Saunders, meanwhile, comes into this fight unbeaten (30-0, 14 KOs). The Briton’s last outing was a unanimous-decision victory over Martin Murray in December.
