It’s Cinco de Mayo weekend and, as usual, Saúl “Canelo” Álvarez is headlining a pay-per-view card. What is out of the norm, however, is that Álvarez will be lacing up the gloves and putting his undisputed super middleweight championship on the line against a Mexican opponent.

It’s been seven years since Álvarez last fought a fellow countryman, a unanimous decision win over Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. in May of 2017. On Saturday, Álvarez (60-2, 39 KOs) is lending his shine and welcoming the undefeated Jaime Munguía (44-0, 35 KOs) into the ring for the main event.

Munguía, at 27, has demonstrated his skill with 44 professional fights to his name. Despite having faced formidable opponents, he has yet to go up against someone like Álvarez, who is widely recognized as the biggest name in boxing and holds titles across four weight divisions.

With the anticipation building, the question is whether Álvarez will maintain his dominance, or if the young Mexican contender will make his mark by defeating him.
