Canelo Álvarez is the undisputed super middleweight champion, but this weekend he’ll be facing a new challenge.

The Mexican boxer will be duking it out in the ring with Russian fighter Dmitry Bivol, with Álvarez looking to take the WBA title off Bivol, which he has held since 2017.

Both fighters have impressive stats behind them, with Canelo having had 39 knockouts in 60 professional fights.

Bivol meanwhile – who has recently responded to claims that Russian boxers should be banned from the sport – is unbeaten in his previous 19 fights, 11 of which have been knockouts.

But when does the fight take place, and how can boxing fans watch all the action in the UK?
