It's going to be streamed online on DAZN.

It's time for the Canelo vs Yildirim live stream of the main event, so you better figure out how to watch below quickly. And that's because tonight at the Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens, Florida, we will see the mega-champ Saul "Canelo" Alvarez all of his gold on the line against Avni Yildirim, a mandatory challenger.

This is the latest step in Alvarez's path to become the undisputed champion at his 168-pound weight class. While Yildrim is the underdog here, he's got experience in his gloves and little to actually lose.

BetMGM has Canelo as the overwhelming favorite at -5000. So, if you want to win $100, you'd need to wager $5,000. I do not like those odds. Yildirim is listed at +1200, so you can win $1,200 by betting $100 — if he wins. And Yildrim, at those odds, is not at all expected to win. 

Alvarez is at peak physical condition, and this match is arguably just a formality.
