Canelo vs Yildirim full fight video highlights and results of DAZN main event

Canelo Alvarez dominated again on Saturday night, and Billy Joe Saunders awaits next in May.

Scott Christ is the managing editor of Bad Left Hook and has been covering boxing for SB Nation since 2006.

Canelo Alvarez came, saw, and rather easily conquered in Miami on Saturday night, stopping Avni Yildirim after three rounds of one-way traffic to retain the WBC and WBA super middleweight titles.

If you missed the fight, highlights from the entire short night are up above.

Canelo (55-1-2, 37 KO) is now headed for the anticipated May 8 unification bout with WBO titleholder Billy Joe Saunders (30-0, 14 KO), a fight that should be much more highly-anticipated than this stay-busy victory over an over-matched mandatory challenger.

On the Canelo-Yildirim undercard, McWilliams Arroyo took the interim WBC flyweight title by overpowering short-notice foe Abraham Rodriguez, Zhilei Zhang started very fast but faded badly against Jerry Forrest and had to settle for a draw, Diego Pacheco and Marc Castro remained unbeaten on the main card, and Keyshawn Davis made a strong pro debut on the prelims.

Here’s the run of highlights from the rest of the show:
