Canelo Alvarez (54-1-2, 36 KOs) and Avni Yildirim (21-2, 12 KOs) both had no problem making weight for Saturday’s WBA and WBC super-middleweight title. Yildirim is the mandatory challenger in the WBC’s rankings but at the same time is a predictably massive underdog against Alvarez. But hey, Canelo is fighting for a second time in just three months and we should see him in action again in May if all goes well on Saturday night.
