Canelo Alvarez vs. Billy Joe Saunders fight results: Live boxing updates, scorecard, start time, undercard

Canelo and Saunders are set to clash for a trio of super middleweight titles on Saturday night in Texas

Canelo Alvarez's path toward an eventual shot at becoming the undisputed super middleweight champion must go through WBO titleholder Billy Joe Saunders on Saturday in a card set to take place in front of 70,000 fans inside AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas. 

Alvarez, who holds the WBC and WBA titles at 168 pounds, faces one of the most uniquely difficult challenges in recent years against the unbeaten Saunders, who successfully negotiated a larger ring for the fight to suit his style of boxing by threatening to pull out on Tuesday. 

Saunders has played the role of troll throughout fight week although he remains a fairly sizable betting underdog against Alvarez, the Mexican superstar who has earned almost unanimous status as the pound-for-pound best in the world.
