Canelo Alvarez and Billy Joe Saunders will fight in Texas tonight, but how much will they earn?
When Canelo Alvarez takes on Billy Joe Saunders tonight, he has the grit between his teeth as he attempts to add another belt to his ever-growing collection. This week, the Brit has ruffled the Mexican’s feathers ahead of the main event at AT&T Stadium in Dallas.
Canelo claims he will punish his opponent for “four years of insults.”
This fight had been in the works for a long time and was supposed to take place on Cinco de Mayo last year.
