This Cinco De Mayo weekend, P4P King Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez faces Unbeaten WBA Light Heavyweight Champion Dmitry Bivol. Canelo vs Bivol marks the debut of DAZN Pay-Per-View in the United States priced at $59.99 for existing subscribers and $79.99 for non-existing subscribers with a free month of DAZN. Check below for the UK time and ET time.
At an expected 20,000 sell-out at the T-mobile Arena, Las Vegas, Nevada; Canelo Alvarez takes another tough challenge to add to his already brilliant legacy. Bivol, arguably the #1 175-pounder in the world, is no easy feat and a much more impressive win than a faded Sergey Kovalev who Canelo beat to become Light Heavyweight champion in 2019.
Who Will Canelo Face If He Beats Dmitry Bivol?
Canelo vs Bivol is expected to be the first of three bouts the Mexican has with Eddie Hearn’s Matchroom and DAZN PPV. Should he beat Bivol, Alvarez will fight GGG in September to complete a historic trilogy. Canelo GGG 3 is a fight DAZN has been trying to make since they started working with Canelo and four years later, they may just get it.
Should Canelo beat both Bivol and GGG, he will fight again in December in either his native Mexico or London. At this point, it looks like London is more of a front-runner, and Joshua Buatsi, should he beat Craig Richards, could be the opponent. John Ryder and Lerrone Richards are almost Matchroom fighters who would be suitable opponents for a UK fight.
