Canelo giving boxing fans the fight they want to see
With Canelo choosing to put his trilogy fight against Gennady Golovkin on hold, Kovalev was the ideal opponent for him to fight against. There was no one else with a big enough name for Canelo to fight at 160 and 168, so he opted to go to 175 to look for a big name.
Kovalev is the ideal opponent for Canelo to fight, because he’s well known, and has an exciting fighting style. Although Kovalev isn’t the same guy he once was seven years ago, he’s still an excellent fighter with big power in both hands.
Canelo, 29, has recently won the IBF/WBA/WBC middleweight titles with wins over Golovkin and Daniel Jacobs. Last December, Canelo beat WBA ‘regular’ super middleweight champion Rocky Fielding to become a 3-division world champion.
Canelo Alvarez , the face of boxing and the king of the middleweight division, will take on a new challenge as he moves into the 175-pound weight class in a 12-round bout against champion Sergey “Krusher” Kovalev (34-3-1, 28 KOs) for the WBO Light Heavyweight World Title. The event will take place Saturday, Nov. 2 at MGM Grand in Las Vegas and will be streamed exclusively live on DAZN in all of its nine markets, including the United States, Canada, Brazil, Spain, Italy, Germany, Austria, Switzerland and Japan.
