Canelo Alvarez remains busy with his second fight in just over two months on Saturday night.
Alvarez (54-1-2, 36 KOs) is in a quick turnaround for this fight, last fight – and defeat – Callum Smith in a super middleweight clash last December. The victory bout was Canelo’s first in more than a year, following his 12-round unanimous decision victory over Sergey Kovalev in November 2019.
While the future of Canelo’s fighting isn’t immediately apparent, Alvarez is targeting Turkish fighter Avni Yildirim in Miami, Fla. This weekend. Yildirim has only lost two losses in his boxing career, but hasn’t fought since a technical decision loss to Anthony Dirrell in February 2019.
Canelo and Yildirim will battle for the WBA, WBC and The Ring super middleweight titles in South Beach. Here’s what you need to know about the Saturday night fight:
