Canelo Alvarez vs Billy Joe Saunders: Storylines
This is a potential legacy-defining fight for both boxers, especially for Canelo Alvarez, and the winner will most likely get the right to fight IBF champion Caleb Plant to become the ultimate leader of the 168-pound division.
Thus far, the Mexican superstar has won 55 of his 58 fights with two ties and just one loss, whereas Billy Joe Saunders is still undefeated after 30 fights with no ties. Clearly, something's gotta give this time.
