Seconds out! Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez, 25, will lay his WBC Middleweight Championship belt on the line when he comes face to face with British fighter Amir Khan on May 7 at the newly built T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. But what time is the fight and what channel is it on? Let us fill in the blanks with everything you need to know so you can watch every second!
What channel is the fight on?
Bad news, guys! It’s a pay-per-view event, as always is, with the big Las Vegas fights. So it’ll be shown through HBO for a price of 69.95 to watch in HD, while it’s 59.95 if you want to watch in SD. For $10 extra you might as well do HD, right? Then, you’ll get to see all those blows reigning in with a clearer picture! You can also live stream it for the same cost at CaneloKhan.com
What time is the fight?
Always hard to tell, because there are three other fights on the card. The action starts at 9 p.m. EST, but you’ll have to watch Patrick Teixeira Vs. Curtis Stevens, Frankie Gomez Vs. Mauricio Herrera and David Lemieux Vs. Glen Tapia first before the main event! Still, all fights are TOTALLY worth it!
Who is the favorite?
According to the bookmakers, Saul is the clear favorite at 1/4 on. However, Amir is capable of an upset and the odds of 3/1 for him winning are quite generous. They’ve never fought each other before, and Saul has 1 defeat against his name in 48 fights, while Amir has been beaten 3 times in 34.
What is on the line?
Ambitious Amir has decided to step up two weight classes to make this fight against Saul happen. He’s really desperate for the main prize, which is the WBC Middleweight Championship. But it certainly will be the hardest fight of his life!
