Canelo Alvarez and Jermell Charlo will finally clash tonight in Las Vegas after months of build-up for their highly-anticipated champion vs champion clash at the T-Mobile Arena.
The Mexican superstar is one of the sport's pound-for-pound greats, winning world titles at multiple different weights before unifying the super-middleweight division. And now he looks to make even more history as he faces another undisputed champion in Charlo, who holds all of the super-welterweight gold and jumps up two weights for the fight.
Alvarez is a big favourite given the weight difference, but Charlo is actually the taller man and could have a few physical advantages if the adjustment to the 168lb limit doesn't hinder him. The bout will be a massive pay-per-view event in America, but unlike previous fights for the Mexican it will be available in the UK as part of a DAZN subscription.
When will the fight actually start?
The day’s events start at 8 p.m. ET. The main event is scheduled for around 11 p.m. ET.

Canelo Alvarez meets Jermell Charlo in a massive title fight tonight.
The Mexican superstar returns to his second home of Las Vegas in a huge battle between two of boxing’s undisputed world champions.
Charlo, the king of the light-middleweight scene, moves up two weight divisions to take on one of the biggest challenges the sport has to offer.
Canelo cannot add his opponent’s 154lbs titles to his haul but is putting his own WBA (Super), WBC, IBF and WBO belts up at super-middleweight on the line tonight.
It is the first time that Canelo has laced up the gloves since outpointing the brave Brit John Ryder on his Guadalajara homecoming back in May.

It didn’t take long for Saul “Canelo” Alvarez to consider Las Vegas his second home.
He came here to fight Jose Cotto on May 10, 2010, at the MGM Grand Garden Arena, and right away Alvarez felt the support from his Mexican compatriots.
Alvarez won that fight by technical knockout in the second round, the first of many trips to Las Vegas. He is back again, this time as the unified super middleweight champion preparing to face junior middleweight champ Jermell Charlo on Saturday at T-Mobile Arena.
This will be Alvarez’s 17th fight in Las Vegas.
“I think it’s the capital of boxing,” Alvarez said of Las Vegas. “I just feel (it’s) like coming home because a lot of Mexicans go there and support me. So that’s why I like fighting in Vegas, and there’s a lot of history there.”
The 33-year-old Alvarez has been a big part of that history, whether it’s beating Gennadiy Golovkin twice with another fight ending in a split draw, or defeating Shane Mosley, Daniel Jacobs or Sergey Kovalev. His favorite memory is of the one-sided unanimous decision over Miguel Cotto in November 2015.
He’s a great champion,” Alvarez said in the ring after that fight, “but now it’s my era.
Alvarez (59-2-2) has the chance to add to his legacy when he faces the 33-year-old Charlo, who is moving up two weight classes for this fight.
Even though Charlo (35-1-1) is the one moving up, he is 4 inches taller than the 5-foot-8 Alvarez and has a 2 1/2-inch reach advantage. Alvarez said his experience will help him counter the size deficiency.
I’ve been in the ring with a lot of styles, all kind of fighters,” Alvarez said. “My whole career, I’ve been fighting with (boxers) taller than me, so I know how.
I don’t think Canelo has faced a fighter of my caliber,” Charlo said. “He’s been in there with great fighters, but there’s something I bring to the table that’s a lot different than anyone he’s seen. I defy the science of boxing.
I’m one of the guys from the younger era and I’ve been fighting my whole life. What I’ve been through in life, a lot of people can’t compare to that. I deserve to be in my position and now I get to prove my worthiness.
If Alvarez prevails, WBC president Mauricio Sulaiman has declared David Benavidez will be his mandatory challenger for the super middleweight belt.
But Alvarez has not committed to facing Benavidez, a 26-year-old who is 27-0 with all but four by knockout. If Alvarez beats Charlo and turns down Benavidez, the WBC likely would vacate his championship.
As for his potential options post-Charlo, Alvarez said his intention would be to “make the best fights out there. We will see after this fight.
Daring to be great, Canelo Alvarez has taken on all comers. The undisputed super middleweight champion will go outside the norm and won't defend the belts against someone within his division. Instead, another fighter with gold dares to be great as Jermell Charlo moves in weight to face Canelo on September 30.
Canelo returned from wrist surgery in May and beat John Ryder to retain the belts. He had plenty of options for fights: David Benavidez, a Dmitry Bivol rematch, and Jermall Charlo, the brother of Jermell. Instead, Canelo elected to face Jermell, the undisputed super welterweight champion.
