Did Claressa Shields’ winning comeback help her move up the DAZN P4P rankings? DAZN’s Dream Fight #3: Joe Calzaghe vs Andre Ward – who will win? After winning the WBA (Super) and WBC belts by unanimous decision over Callum Smith in December, Canelo threw in the towel on Avni Yildirim’s corner after the third round in what appeared to be nothing more than a one-way spar last February.
Ahead of the meeting with Saunders this weekend, Canelo is well aware of what’s going on. “To win all these 168-pound titles,” Alvarez says in the fight promotional video, “no Mexican has ever done that.” Meanwhile, Saunders is bouncing back from a lopsided unanimous decision victory over Martin Murray in December. Saunders knows that Canelo wants to conquer his last chapter in boxing history, and he couldn’t think of anything better than to thwart those plans and leave his own mark on the annals of the sweet science.
“I’m Billy Joe Saunders, and I’m not afraid of greatness,” he says in the same commercial. Can Canelo take another step towards making boxing history at 168 pounds, or will Saunders put on the best performance of his career for what will be a considerable upheaval?
