There's still time to watch a Canelo vs Saunders live stream tonight and give your faith in the boxing world a much-needed boost. In a time filled with YouTuber fights and oddly matched exhibition events, this is a genuinely exciting unification bout between two of the world's greatest fighters.
After a number of delays due to covid, pay cuts, a legality issue amounting to at least $280 million, and simply fighters not being ready, Canelo Alvarez vs Billy Joe Saunders will finally go head to head.
And with this set to be the biggest crowd for a US sporting event since the pandemic shut the country down, a Canelo vs Saunders live stream is going to be one of the biggest boxing events we've seen for a long time.
Both fighters are at the top of their game, there is no clear winner here. Alvarez is currently the world's best pound-for-pound active boxer, he's won world championships in four weight classes and is the current super middleweight world champion.
While not quite the legacy of Alvarez, Saunders holds multiple world championships too. He's previously worked his way through the Olympics and of his 30 fights, he's never lost.
While Canelo and Saunders is the event most will be tuning in for, the fight card will also include a host of matches ranging from Heavyweights to Featherweights giving you plenty of action.
Read on to see how to catch a Canelo vs Saunders live stream from anywhere in the world. While DAZN has exclusive rights, times and costs will differ for different regions.

How to watch Canelo vs Saunders live stream in the US:
DAZN (opens in new tab)
Unlike most fight events that are hosted exclusively on ESPN+ in the US, this fight can only be watched through DAZN (opens in new tab). There is no PPV cost but you do have to sign up for a DAZN subscription.
In the US, there are two ways to do this. You can either pay monthly at $19.99 a month or you can pay one upfront cost of $99.99. That's the equivalent of paying $8.33 a month which is a pretty huge discount to be had!

Why is Alvarez vs Saunders an exciting fight?
Active boxing fans will know exactly why this is a fight worth watching. Two world champions with a total of 88 fights and just one loss between the two them (to the undefeated Floyd Mayweather), there is a lot of experience stepping into the ring.
And if the stadium sells out, we could be seeing the biggest boxing attendance in the United States since 1927 - not a bad record to set at all!
One's the number 1 active pound for pound boxer, known for his vicious counter punches and body hits and the other, a ferocious boxer who's worked his way through European, British and Commonwealth titles with ease.
In other words, this is a fight between two of the best active boxers around right now - a great way to kick start live boxing events as they open up more again.
What are the other standouts from the fight card?
While most will be tuning in for Alvarez vs Saunders, it's not the only worthwhile fight of the night. There is a full card across pretty much all of the different weight categories.
Elwin Soto vs Katsunari Takayama will be an exciting fight for flyweight fans as Takayama attempts to defend his junior flyweight WBO title. At just 24, Soto is still a very young fighter but his 18 wins to just one loss is the record of an up and coming fighter worth following.
Another interesting fight will be Kieron Conway vs Souleymane Cissokho. Conway will be defending his WBA intercontinental super-welterweight title. The two were originally meant to fight back in 2020 on the Anthony Joshua vs Kubrat Pulev card but it was pushed back.
There are a host of other interesting fights lined up including the undefeated Frank Sanchez defending his WBO-NABO heavyweight title that he's held since 2019.
