Alvarez hopes to become the undisputed champion at 168 lbs, but his road to glory first must go through mandatory challenger Yildirim. The pair square off Saturday at the Hard Rock Stadium in Miami, and fans in the United States can catch all the action on pay-per-view as well as on DAZN.

Canelo Alvarez vs. Avni Yildirim odds
(All odds via BetMGM)
BetMGM unsurprisingly has Canelo as the overwhelming favorite to win. As of Thursday, he comes in at -5000. That means you’d need to bet $5000 just to win $100. Meanwhile Yildirim is available at +1200, which means you’ll take home $1200 if you bet $100 and he pulls off the upset.
Canelo has only ever been defeated as a professional by the legendary Floyd Mayweather, a result that took place way back in 2013. The Mexican is now at his physical peak and arguably his optimal weight class, and although Yildirim has earned a fair title shot, his resume isn’t particularly dazzling and his two career losses came in his two most challenging encounters to date.
