Canelo's fourth defense of his undisputed world super middleweight crown is arguably his most intriguing yet. The Mexican will fight a compatriot for the first time since May 2017 when he beat Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. and, though this isn't the bout against current WBA regular champion David Benavidez that the world wants to see, it nevertheless represents a different look for the 33-year-old.

Canelo hasn't always convinced since losing to Dmitry Bivol up at light heavyweight four years ago and though his savage body shots continue with trademark brutality, the Guadalajara native needs to look good.

Munguia is an unbeaten former light middleweight world champion whose move up the divisions has been relatively serene. Back in January, the 27-year-old stopped British fighter John Ryder in the ninth round to definitively announce himself at 168lbs and put himself as the next best option to face Canelo – after a fight with Jermall Charlo fell out of favor and no deal to be done with Benavidez – on his traditional Cinco de Mayo date.

Canelo fought Ryder two contests ago and went the distance, proving that if Munguia can box at range and start quickly – he's notoriously slow out of the blocks – then this could be a closer bout than some may think.

Below, we'll show you how to watch Canelo vs Munguia live streams from anywhere – in Mexico, the U.S. or abroad. Plus, we provide all the details of a packed card and the all-important tale of the tape.

Canelo vs Munguia latest news

Both Saul 'Canelo' Alvarez and Jaime Munguia made weight without any fuss at Friday's weigh-in and we're all set for today's huge fight for the former's undisputed super middleweight world titles. Alvarez came in at 166.8 pounds and Munguia slightly heavier at 167.4 pounds, both comfortably below the 168 pound limit.

Canelo, two months shy of his 34th birthday, is in bullish mood, not least after nearly coming to blows with Munguia promoter, and his former agent, Oscar de la Hoya earlier in the week.

"I feel really good," Alvarez said. "I feel in my prime. I'm feeling my best because I have no injuries anymore, I'm feeling my best right now. I'm going to show you guys on Saturday night. I think I'm in my best shape ever."

The unbeaten Munguia was equally confident of pulling off the upset. 

"I'm so excited," Munguia said. "It's a great opportunity. I'm going to take advantage of it to the fullest, and tomorrow, I'm going to be the new world champion."
