The main event of Canelo vs Saunders is tonight at 11 p.m. ET / 8 p.m. PT / 4 a.m. BST.
It's going to be streamed online on DAZN.Saturday, May 8

The undercard starts at 5:20 p.m. ET and the main card 8 p.m. ET

This weekend's Canelo vs Saunders live stream is starting soon, and it’s a super middleweight unification bout that will stream live from AT&T Stadium In Arlington, TX. With Saul "Canelo" Alvarez at the top of the card, you know that history is on the line. 

A win here will vault the victor higher up the food chain, to a likely fight against IBF champion Caleb Plant, where the winner will be known as the undisputed super middleweight champion. And that would be a first for boxing. 

Canelo walks into the fight like Thanos himself, a belt collecting madman, holding the super middleweight titles from the WBA (Super), WBC, and The Ring. He puts all that gold on the line for the chance to add Saunders' WBO 168-pound title to his collection.

Canelo's last match came in February, where his battering of Avni Yıldırım led to the latter's corner throw in the towel. Saunders is no walk in the park, coming off a victory over Martin Murray at the tail end of 2020 — though it was via decision. 

As of Friday afternoon, BetMGM has Canelo as the favorite at -650 (Saunders is at +375). That means gamblers need to risk $650 to win an additional $100. Tough odds.
