Reports indicate Canelo Alvarez has selected Billy Joe Saunders as his opponent for a Cinco De Mayo weekend bout set to take place in Las Vegas, Nevada.
The DAZN fighter and four-division champion was last seen knocking out Sergey Kovalev in round 11 for the WBO light-heavyweight title at the MGM Grand Garden Arena.
Alvarez, (53-1-2, 36KO) holds the WBA title at super-middleweight following his TKO win over Rocky Fielding in December 2018.
United Kingdom native Saunders, (29-0, 14KO) holds the WBO super-middleweight title and last defended his belt in November 2019 with a KO of Marcelo Esteban Coceres.
The Canelo vs. Saunders showdown, set to take place at the T-Mobile Arena, could be drawn up as a super-middleweight unification.
Golden Boy Promotions, Alvarez’s promoter, has yet to formally announce the fight.
