One of the most-anticipated boxing matches of 2019 is finally upon us. Saturday night, unified middleweight champion Canelo Alvarez will put his trio of 160-pound titles on the line when he battles IBF champion Daniel Jacobs. Alvarez and Jacobs have seemingly been on a collision course since both signed with streaming app DAZN in 2018, and the company had hopes of the two facing off sooner than later.
There is some good news for UK viewers, however, Canelo vs Jacobs will available to watch live on Sky Sports Action and Main Event channels, and is available Free Here.
Their coverage begins at 12:30am.
Alvarez is coming off his debut victory with DAZN in November where he scored a decisive third-round TKO over Rocky Fielding at Madison Square Garden. Jacobs, meanwhile, scored a split decision win over Serhiy Derevianchenko (a former training partner) in October. The winner on Saturday could emerge as the next challenger for another recent DAZN signing (and Canelo rival) Gennady Golovkin. Golovkin is scheduled to face Steve Rolls in June, but most expect him to face the winner of this fight in September or October.
