Canelo vs Saunders ring walks: What time will super middleweight fight start in UK?

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.

Can the southpaw, 31, put a dent in the legacy of the Mexican superstar?

Prediction

It will be intriguing to see whether southpaw Saunders has the ability to frustrate Canelo, who is incredibly slick and technical.
