Canelo vs Saunders Preview
Álvarez (55-1-2, 37 KOs) last fought 39 days ago, when he outlanded mandatory challenger Avni Yildirim 67-11 across three rounds before Yildirim’s corner threw in the towel.
“I wanted to have a great fight here,” the 30-year-old said through an interpreter after the victory, according to ESPN. “I needed to knock [him] out, and that’s what I did. That’s what I had to do.”
It was Álvarez’s sixth consecutive victory and 14th straight bout without a defeat; he drew with Gennady Golovkin in September 2017 then took a decision victory over him a year later for the WBA and WBC middleweight belts.
A win over Saunders (30-0, 14 KOs) would mark Álvarez’s second defense of the WBA and WBC super middleweight titles he claimed by besting Callum Smith via unanimous decision in December 2020. He’s won world championships in four weight classes.
“I’ve been in a lot of important fights,” Álvarez said at a prefight news conference, according to The New York Times. “This is another day at the office. I always go 100 percent. Boxing is my life. I’m here to win.”
The Guadalajara native’s only professional defeat came in September 2013, when he succumbed to Floyd Mayweather Jr. by majority decision.
“He’s a great fighter,” Álvarez said Thursday of Saunders, per The New York Times. “But I’m not the same fighter I was six or seven years ago.”
Saunders, a former WBO middleweight titlist, captured the WBO super middleweight title with a unanimous decision over Shefat Isufi in May 2019.
The 30-year-old southpaw from Herfordshire, England, has defended the belt twice, knocking out Marcelo Esteban Coceres in November of that year and taking a decision over Martin Murray 13 months later.
“It’s going to be a good fight,” Saunders said after Friday’s weigh-in, according to ESPN. “He’s a great champion. But to be honest with you, I’ve come here to take all of his titles and take them by storm.”
