Saul 'Canelo' Alvarez turned professional at 15 and has barely stopped knocking out opponents since. Still only 33, this will be his 64th fight of the four-weight world champion's stunning career in the division that looks his best. Unbeaten at super middleweight where he holds all the belts, Canelo is a devastating counterpuncher who beat Islington's John Ryder in a unanimous decision last time out.

American Jermell Charlo steps in for his identical twin brother – the unbeaten WBC middleweight champion – who pulled out for personal reasons. It's typical of the younger Charlo, who has never ducked a challenge and became undisputed light middleweight world champion by stopping Brian Castano in May 2022. He's the taller, and perhaps cannier, fighter but the challenge will be matching Canelo's naturally bigger frame.
