As their fight gets closer, Saul 'Canelo' Alvarez's disdain for Billy Joe Saunders' antics is seemingly growing by the day. The super middleweight world champions having to be pulled apart following a heated faceoff Wednesday is proof of that.
Well, that increasing animosity will come to a head Saturday night, when Alvarez clashes with Saunders in their super middleweight championship unification bout at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Tex. and live on DAZN. Canelo's WBA (Super), WBC, and The Ring super middleweight titles, along with Saunders' WBO 168-pound title, will be on the line.
Leading up to the fight, Canelo promises to make an example out of the brash Saunders, as to how trash talking him before a fight can go wrong once the bell rings.
"Ready to make a statement this Saturday," Alvarez tweeted Wednesday.
Meanwhile, Saunders vows that Canelo has never fought a caliber of boxer quite like him and that he intends to prove that this weekend.
"You've never been in the ring with someone like me," Saunders told the boxing superstar face-to-face Wednesday. "You've never seen anybody with this [pointing to his heart]."
Saturday night's winner will look to book a fight with IBF champion Caleb Plant for a shot to secure world super middleweight undisputed glory.
