Canelo Alvarez will return to the ring on Saturday, May 7, facing Dmitry Bivol in the main event from T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, as boxing’s hot schedule just keeps cooking.
Canelo (57-1-2, 39 KO) will be the title challenger in this fight, not an unfamiliar position for him. The 31-year-old Mexican superstar hasn’t taken a loss since his 2013 defeat against Floyd Mayweather, and will be looking to notch his ninth straight win, his last blemish coming in a 2017 draw with Gennadiy Golovkin.
Bivol (19-0, 11 KO) is the noted underdog, but a true, top 175 lb fighter, and many believe — especially inside of boxing — that the Russian could be a major challenge for Canelo, and at the very least end a run of pretty clear dominance in recent fights.
