There was no face-off between Canelo Alvarez and Billy Joe Saunders on May 4 as initially planned.
Canelo and Saunders are set to collide this Saturday night, May 8. Four championships will be on the line. Canelo holds three super-middleweight titles (WBA, WBC, and The Ring), while Saunders has the WBO gold.
Saunders and his team aren’t too fond of the ring size ahead of the big weekend clash. It’s gotten to the point where Saunders’ father told iFL TV that the fight is off. That claim hasn’t been confirmed and now fight fans are left to hope that cooler heads prevail.
