The champion carries a lot of momentum coming into this bout, as he is coming off the back of a monster-upset victory over Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez back in May, which saw him weigh in at nearly the same weight as he tipped the scales at 174.6lbs back then. ‘Zurdo’ will be campaigning at light-heavyweight for a sixth time, as he previously fought at super middleweight, which saw him hold the WBO title back in 2018.
Somebodies ‘0’ has got to go tomorrow night when these two undefeated light heavyweights do battle at the Etihad Arena in Abu Dhabi. This unmissable clash can be watched live and exclusively on DAZN.
