Canelo vs Munguia date, time and how to watch live on US and UK TV

Canelo Alvarez is back and WILL take in his normal Cinco de Mayo weekend date with a fight vs fellow Mexican Jaime Munguia in Las Vegas.

The P4P megastar (60-2-2) will face Munguia (43-0) in a 12-round blockbuster for the undisputed super-middleweight championship of the world.

For a little while it appeared as though Alvarez was about to bolt from his deal with Al Haymon’s Premier Boxing Champions (PBC) to head for DAZN. Instead though he’ll effectively work with them both. Good news for TV viewers though.
