Fight night is almost here. Almost.

All week long we’ve looked at Canelo Alvarez vs Daniel Jacobs from various angles. We did a preview for the fight, we made our staff picks, looked at how Jacobs might be able to upset the odds, looked at their biggest fights to date, and we had the drama at the weigh-in.

In mere hours, the fighters will settle it, streaming live on DAZN. Here’s how they stack up on paper:

Jacobs, as has been noted many times, has height and reach on Canelo. They’re both titleholders. They’re both highly-regarded fighters in the sport. Jacobs is a little older, but they’ve been pros for about the same amount of time, and Alvarez actually six more world title fights under his belt already (not that all world title fights in boxing are created equal).

And if you’re looking to dig into the stats, CompuBox TV has done that:

We’ll be here in just a few hours with live coverage of the full card, starting at 6:00 pm ET with the and regional sports network prelim fights, then continuing with more prelim fights at 7:30 pm ET on DAZN, and then the main card starting at 9:00 pm ET, also on DAZN. We’ll have round-by-round updates for the main card.
