Pound for pound, no boxer is currently more highly rated in the fight game than Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez. Nevertheless, on Saturday he faces arguably one of the toughest bouts of his illustrious career. Billy Joe Saunders will be a hugely difficult opponent, in a contest that has three of the four major super middleweight belts up for grabs.
For anyone looking to bet on the Saul Alvarez v Billy Joe Saunders fight, the latest 3/25 pre-fight odds are strongly in favor of the Mexican. Meanwhile, the undefeated British boxer is being priced as a 5/1 shot, which points towards a potential upset if he emerges victorious. Whatever the outcome, this certainly promises to be an enthralling contest between two great boxers.

This fight is the latest for Alvarez in his quest to become the undisputed super middleweight champion. He currently holds the WBA, WBC, and Ring Magazine title belts in this division. If he can beat current WBO champion Saunders, the 31-year-old Mexican will then go after the IBF title, held by American boxer Callum Smith.
