Boxing tonight: TV channels, live streams, start times and fight cards

Canelo Alvarez can take another step towards greatness tonight when he takes on fellow world champion Billy Joe Saunders.

The Mexican holds two of the four super-middleweight belts and will attempt to add Saunders’ strap to his burgeoning collection.

That would leave him short only of Caleb Plant’s IBF belt as he looks to becoming the undisputed world champion at 168lb.

Saunders will hope to have plenty to say about that in Dallas and brings a spotless 30-0 record to the AT&T Stadium.

The Brit has always promised to rise to the occasion when he is presented with a challenge – and there is no bigger task in boxing.

Here is everything you need to know about tonight’s fights…

What time is the fight?

The fight will start at 4am UK time, which is 10pm in Dallas. The time is unlikely to change, regardless of the undercard, as it has been set in stone by the broadcaster.

Canelo Alvarez

“I feel really thankful with the response of the people and that boxing is a sport that brings everything back to normal. I’m ready for this fight.

“He’s a great fighter, he has a lot of ability and he’s a southpaw. I’m not the same fighter I was six or seven years ago, this Saturday I will show that.

“I’ve been involved in a lot of big fights and this is just another day at the office. I come to win, like I said boxing is my life and I come here to win.”

Billy Joe Saunders

“I’ve been boxing all my life, I’ve been boxing since I was five years old, I’ve dragged up – on the gypsy camps. We can all have the rough, tough talk growing up as kids. I’m here for a reason, there’s no other reasons for me to be here apart from to win. Not about fame or anything else, to win.

“I don’t think we’ve had somebody come to win for a very long time. We’ve had a lot of people turn up, collect cheques and fly out but we haven’t had the heart, soul and IQ that I’ll bring to the ring on Saturday night to win.

“I can’t talk what he’s done down, he’s done brilliant things for boxing. He’s a good champion but like I said, there’s a time in life where you get tested, sometimes when you forget where come from and forget all those hard things that’s brought you to where you’re at sometimes that can make it difficult on yourself. I think he’s going to be bumping into the wrong man Saturday night to be going home with titles. I’m looking forward to a very good fight but most definitely the win.”
