Canelo Alvarez will clash with Billy Joe Saunders in a WBC, WBA Super, WBO and Ring Magazine World Super-Middleweight unification blockbuster on May 8, live worldwide on DAZN (except Mexico).

Alvarez dismantled WBC mandatory challenger Avni Yildirim in three rounds at the Hard Rock Stadium in Miami last night, and next he takes a giant step in his quest to become undisputed by facing the WBO king Saunders at a venue to be announced soon.

Canelo spoke to Matchroom Boxing following last night’s event, discussing Billy Joe Saunders and the unification bout.

Canelo Alvarez on Billy Joe Saunders

“We want to unify the division” Alvarez stated. “He’s a world champion, we want to go for it and we need to go for it. He’s a very difficult fighter and has a championship, the WBO.
 
“People talk but I’m a very mature fighter and I know how to control myself. All I need to do is go into the ring, win and make history. It’s because it hasn’t been done, no one has done it in Latin America. In the world only a few fighters have done it, the best. I want to make history and be one of the best in the world.”
