Canelo Alvarez and Daniel Jacobs are set to finally clash tonight at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.
The build-up to the fight had been all pretty laid back, and then on Friday at the weigh-in, the two got at each other a little bit, injecting the fight with some arguably much-needed drama.
Fight fans are used to a bout of this magnitude (or one of much less magnitude) being on pay-per-view for $70 or $100 or whatever, but this one isn’t, and that has some people confused. So here’s how you can watch.
