Canelo Alvarez (57-1-2, 39 KOs)
Since turning professional at just 15 years of age, now 31-year-old Canelo Alverz has a staggering 60 professional fights under his belt with just one loss (Floyd Mayweather Jr., 2013). Since then Alvarez has fought in five different weight classes, scooping up nearly every belt the sport has to offer. Coming into Saturday, Alvarez holds the WBA (Super), WBC, WBO, and The Ring super middleweight titles, as well as the WBO light heavyweight title.
Over the past 18 months alone, he has won over Billy Joe Saunders, Caleb Plant, and Callum Smith, all three via stoppage, as he now will look to become a two-time champion in the 175 lbs weight class.
Dmitry Bivol (19-0, 11 KOs)
Bivol will put his 0 on the line on Saturday against arguably the best active boxer the sport has to offer, giving Alvarez his first test at this weight since 2019. With one of the best jabs at this weight class, Bivol will need to use it early and often, but more importantly, keep pace against a fighter in Alvarez known to push it and wear down his opponent.
If Bivol can withstand the constant pressure, his noticeable size advantage will be a major asset and his ability to put the lights out is a real one for Alvarez. Bivol also has one of the most technically sound approaches in boxing, which has been known to give Alvarez troubles in the past. No doubt currently in the prime of his own career, Bivol has a real chance to dethrone the king in the eyes of some of boxing's bests minds.
