It’s Fight Week in Las Vegas again. When the unified super middleweight champion Canelo Alvarez (Canelo Alvarez) hopes to gain an undisputed position in the 168-pound division with IBF champion Caleb Plant, Sin Cheng will become the biggest star in all boxing circles. It all started on Saturday, November 6th at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas and will be broadcast live on Showtime PPV.
Since gaining weight to “dare to be great” against larger enemies, Alvarez has been a single man destroying the crew. He won the WBA, WBO and WBC super middleweight titles through Callum Smith, Avni Yilidirim and Billy Joe Saunders. The former light heavyweight champion Sergey Kovalev was suspended. At the same time, Plante won the IBF Championship with a score of 168 pounds in January 2019, and has since conducted three successful defenses.

The 37-year-old Dirrell won the WBC championship with six consecutive victories from 2015 to 2019, but then TKO played a match with David Benavidez in September 2019.
