Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez will attempt to become a four-weight world champion when he takes on Russian warrior Sergey Kovalev this weekend.
The WBO light-heavyweight strap will be on the line in Las Vegas, with ‘Krusher’ Kovalev eager to impress after his win over Englishman Anthony Yarde in his hometown back in August.
Canelo’s last victory came in May, when he defeated Daniel Jacobs at middleweight to unify two of the division’s belts.
He’s making a huge step up in weight, but the Mexican brawler is still the favourite with the bookies.
