Canelo Alvarez to face Saunders on May 8 at AT&T Stadium

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) Canelo Alvarez will return to AT&T Stadium for a world super-middleweight unification fight May 8 against undefeated Billy Joe Saunders.

Mexico's Alvarez regularly fights on or near Cinco de Mayo, though the coronavirus pandemic prevented such a bout last year. He'll bring his WBC and WBA titles into the ring against British favorite Saunders, the WBO champion.

"We are proud to host a boxing match of this magnitude as we welcome back Canelo Alvarez to AT&T Stadium to take on Billy Joe Saunders," said Cowboys owner Jerry Jones, who expects a crowd of 60,000 for the event. "AT&T Stadium was built to house the greatest sporting events on the planet, and we feel we have another incredible boxing event on the horizon with this matchup taking place in Arlington on May 8."
