Canelo Alvarez vs. Dmitry Bivol fight prediction, undercard, odds, start time, expert pick, preview

For a fighter who is just 5-foot-8 and made his pro debut at 140 pounds,

one would think there is a limit to how high he can eventually rise in weight and still be effective.

Luckily, for pound-for-pound king Canelo Alvarez, he doesn't believe in limitations of any kind.

Fresh off a 2021 fighter of the year campaign in which he became the first undisputed champion in super middleweight history

Alvarez (57-1-2, 39 KOs) will move back up to 175 pounds on Saturday to challenge WBA light heavyweight champion Dmitry Bivol (19-0, 11 KOs) inside T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas

Three years removed from his last light heavyweight fight, when he knocked out Sergey Kovalev to claim the WBC title before immediately vacating it,

the 31-year-old Alvarez will take on Bivol during the same week his promoter, Eddie Hearn of Matchroom Sport,

revealed that Alvarez might be willing to challenge for the unified heavyweight title if Oleksandr Usyk,

a former undisputed cruiserweight champion, was willing to accept a catchweight of 201 pounds.
