Canelo Alvarez vs Billy Joe Saunders WBC, WBA, WBO Super Middleweight Titles Bout, Betting Odds and Props - Saturday, May 8, 2021 at the AT&T Stadium, Arlington, Texas, Watch on DAZN.

Last year, given the circumstances, it was not possible for Mexican Saúl "Canelo" Álvarez 55 (37KO) -1-2 to fight the weekend of the Mexican holiday of May 5, which will be different in 2021, in which Not only will he step into a ring, but he will do so in one of the most important fights of the season and one of the most relevant that this fighter has done since his double pass against Golovkin.

And it is that on Saturday, at the AT&T Stadium in Arlington, United States, Canelo will face in a triple unification of the WBA, WBC and WBO crowns to British Billy Joe "Superb" Saunders 30 (14KO) -0, undefeated world champion . who On his best night, against former defending champion David Lemieux, he shined like few fighters with a dynamic performance during the last decade in the middleweight class.

Saunders' victory is very difficult, if Canelo had a landslide victory on points or a victory before the limit, it would still be surprising, since there are objective reasons to believe that he could end in a demanding fight. First of all, for a simple matter of style, Saunders is the kind of mobile and tactical fighter who has traditionally created the most difficulty for Canelo, let's remember that aside from his controversial win over Lara (or loss to Mayweather), he won by the bare minimum. Daniel Jacobs, who in the letters barely collected taxes on a Kovalev mobile before the arrest (a judge gave a draw) and who, surprisingly enough, was losing in the official letters during his fight against Amir Khan ( two scores of 49-46 and 48-47 for Khan).

Therefore, since Saunders is left-handed capable of delivering elusive, dynamic boxing and in which he is able to get frustrated with his dodges, this should not at least be an easy goal to achieve. In this regard, it should also be noted that since 2017, Canelo has only knocked out the fighters who entered the fight against him, assuming that they would lose before the limit as Avni Yildirim, Rocky Fielding and Kovalev arrived, but he did not get a knockout against a top boxer in good shape.

That Saunders is going to be in the best physical condition of him, some will doubt it with reason, but from what has been seen in his training, the Briton does seem to be in better shape than him. for years and it really seems certain that he had the right mindset to face this biggest fight of his career.

So if Saunders gives it his all and, forgetting to entertain the audience, does whatever it takes to try to be efficient, even if that involves very low pace and only isolated punches accompanied by movement, he could capture rounds and come up with a tactic. demanding. He fought Canelo, who however by his shot selection and by his use of compact combinations is sure to receive the benefit of the doubt from the judges except that the Brit has supreme performance ability.
