There isn't much more to say about Canelo Alvarez that hasn't already been written. Very possibly the best pound-for-pound boxer of his generation, he brings the WBA (Super), WBC, IBF and WBO super middleweight belts to Sin City having never been beaten in the weight category before.

Of course he'll come into this one as hot favorite to defend his titles. But there is at least a small sense that Canelo's air of invincibility is waning. Since his loss against Dmitry Bivol at light heavyweight level, he's been taken the distance by Brit John Ryder and in the climax to his trilogy with Gennady 'GGG' Golovkin. It's been almost two years since the Mexican has scored a clean TKO.

Jermell Charlo will need to use that as he enters the ring today. He and his identical twin brother Jermall have long dominated the global light heavyweight division. His devastating defeat of Brian Castaño last year shows he has the skills and character to win on a big night.
