“The second phase of my career is continuing just as we had planned, and that’s why we are continuing to make great fights to enter into the history books of boxing,” the 29-year-old Alvarez said in a statement announcing the fight. “That’s also why I’ve decided to jump two weight classes against one of the most feared champions of recent years. Kovalev is a dangerous puncher, and he’s naturally the bigger man, but that’s the kind of challenges and risks that I like to face.”
Canelo vs Kovalev Full Fight Canelo (52-1-2, 35 KOs) is coming off a unanimous decision victory over Daniel Jacobs in May. Meanwhile, Kovalev bounced back from a stinging loss to Eleider Alvarez last August to defeat the Colombian and take back his WBO strap in February. He then defended the title with an 11th-round KO of Anthony Yarde on Aug. 24, making this bout a sharp turnaround for the “Krusher.”
That latter bout had the 36-year-old Russian putting his power punching on display in an aggressive, pointed style that Canelo is going to have to deal with.
Also on the card is rising star Ryan Garcia (18-0, 15 KOs), who will look to unify the vacant WBC silver lightweight championship with NABO lightweight champion “Ruthless” Romero Duno (21-1, 16 KOs).
“We have put a lot of thought into this long-awaited night, and we’re eager to deliver one of the best undercards of the year,” said Oscar De La Hoya, chairman and CEO of Golden Boy Promotions. “This event will feature some of our brightest talents taking on the toughest fights of their careers. With Ryan Garcia, we have a huge star in the making, but he’ll need to get past a tough, hard-hitting contender in Romero Duno to secure his path for a world title. We also have Seniesa Estrada and Marlen Esparza, who will look to finally end their rivalry in a fight for the Interim WBA Flyweight Title. So, whether in person or live on DAZN, a new chapter in boxing’s history will unfold on November 2.”
Here’s a complete guide to the Canelo vs. Kovalev fight, which is available exclusively for streaming on DAZN rather than traditional pay-per-view, along with updated betting odds, the full undercard and more.
