Canelo Alvarez is arguably the biggest boxing star in the world right now. Fighting him is the modern-day equivalent to getting the Floyd Mayweather fight, with Eddie Hearn describing it as receiving the 'golden ticket'.
This predominantly relates to the financial benefits of fighting Canelo, with his bouts continuously generating record numbers in terms of PPV revenue and gate sales.
The 29-year-old last fought back in November, when he KO'd WBO light heavyweight champion Sergey Kovalev. Despite entering the ring as the favourite, the Mexican surprised many with his emphatic method of victory. He became just the third opponent to stop Kovalev, impressing spectators with his power after moving up in weight class.
Given Canelo's pedigree, various names were being thrown around as to who the dominant fighter would face next, with both Billy Joe Saunders and Callum Smith emerging as the frontrunners.
After months of speculation, we now appear to have a decision.
