Canelo vs Yildirim at a glance
This title fight takes place at the Hard Rock Stadium, in Miami on Saturday, February 27.
The main card begins at: 8pm ET/ 5pm PT / 1am GMT / 12pm AEDT / 2pm NZDT, with Canelo and Yildirim’s ring walks expected around 11pm ET / 8pm PT / 4am GMT / 3pm AEDT / 5pm NZDT.
Canelo’s last fight saw him dispatch Brit fighter Callum Smith in devastating style to become the unified super middleweight champ.
The Mexican star now faces the somewhat unheralded mandatory challenger Yildirim, who comes into the fight off the back of a defeat to Anthony Dirrell a year ago.
Looking to extend his professional record to an incredible 55 victories, Canelo is the runaway favorite here as he looks to line up a lucrative summer showdown against Billy Joe Saunders – but can Yildirim upset those plans and pull off a major upset?
