Canelo vs Kovalev start time expected to be after Midnight ET due to UFC 244

Tonight’s main event is going to start a good bit later than usual.

One of the biggest questions on any big fight night in boxing is when the main event of a high-profile card will actually start. Usually we can only make an educated guess, but tonight we’ve got a little more information.

Due to the fact that Canelo vs Kovalev is going head-to-head with UFC 244, DAZN have made the decision to hold off on starting Canelo-Kovalev until after UFC 244 is over. Right now, that means DAZN are expecting ring walks for the main event around 12:20 am ET / 9:20 pm PT.

We do have LIVE round-by-round coverage for the main card if you’re unable to watch live for whatever reason, so check that out and join in the discussion even if you are watching live.
