Canelo Alvarez looks to add another belt to his collection in the middleweight division. Canelo Alvarez will fight Danny Jacobs in a middleweight unification bout as the Mexican looks to add the IBF belt to his collection.
After two epic fights against Gennady Golovkin, Canelo stepped up to the super middleweight division and dismantled Great Britain’s own Rocky Fielding to become a three-weight world champion but comes back down in weight as he looks to add yet another big name to his glowing record of opponents defeated.
Meanwhile, the fighter known as ‘Miracle Man’ hopes to make the first defence of the IBF title he won against Serhiy Derevianchenko.
Here’s everything you need to know about Canelo vs Jacobs.
When and where is the Canelo Fight Live Stream?

What time will the ring walks be?
As this one is in Vegas, expect it to be no earlier than 4.30am – possibly even 5.

It’ll be live on DAZN as that’s who both fighters are with – and in the UK it’ll be shown on Sky Sports, so if you’re a subscriber you get this one as part of your package.

They are! But unfortunately, only the higher-priced ones are leftover. So if you’re looking to attend Canelo-Jacobs you’ll have to cough up a minimum of $305. You can get them here.
What’s at stake and what are their records?
Plenty of belts! Canelo puts up his WBA (Super), WBC, The Ring and lineal titles, while Jacobs offers his IBF strap. A proper unifying fight.
Canelo’s record is an absurd one, he’s been fighting professionally since the age of 15(!) and has become the biggest star of the sport. He comes in with a record of 54 fights, 51 wins, two draws and just one defeat to the legendary Floyd Mayweather.
Jacobs won vacant IBF title vs Derevyanchenko
Jacobs, meanwhile, has fought 37 times in his professional career with 35 wins and two defeats.

David Lemieux vs John Ryder (WBA interim super-middleweight title)
Vergil Ortiz Jr vs Mauricio Herrera
Joseh Diaz vs TBA
Sadam Ali vs Anthony Young

Canelo should win this one. His body punching ability will break Jacobs down and there could be a late stoppage.
