Canelo Alvarez and Daniel Jacobs hit the scales today ahead of tomorrow night’s big main event on DAZN.
OK, OK — fight week is almost over. We have just the one final #event for you, and it’s today’s weigh-in, starting at 4:30 pm ET. We’ll have live streaming video for you closer to go time, and the show will also stream on DAZN and Facebook.
Canelo and Jacobs are meeting for the WBC, WBA, and IBF middleweight titles tomorrow night at T-Mobile Arena, with Alvarez currently in position of the WBC and WBA, and Jacobs coming in with the IBF. It’s the biggest fight of the year thus far, and the first time you can really, honestly say that DAZN is giving you something that would be a legitimate pay-per-view for your monthly subscription. I mean, Canelo-Fielding would’ve been pay-per-view just because it was Canelo, but I think we all know what I’m saying.
RingTV.com stream starting at 6 pm ET, which will also air on various regional sports networks (check your local listings). That will feature two live fights. Then the show moves to DAZN at 7:30 pm ET for two more fights, and then the four-fight main card starts at 9 pm ET.
We’ll have live coverage on Saturday for the whole thing, with round-by-round updates for the main card portion of the show.
