Alvarez (46-1-1, 32 KOs) will compete at a catchweight of 155 pounds for the fifth straight fight when he headlines the first boxing card at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas on Saturday (HBO PPV, 9 p.m. ET). Alvarez, 25, also claimed boxing’s coveted Cinco de Mayo weekend as his own following the retirement of Floyd Mayweather last fall.
Khan (31-3, 19 KOs), who won titles at junior welterweight, spent the past two years unsuccessfully petitioning for superfights against Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao. The 29-year-old will be moving up in weight from 147 pounds to face Alvarez.
