Ding ding! We're ready to go for a MASSIVE middleweight matchup between Saul Alvarez and Daniel Jacobs to see who will be the unified middleweight champion of the world. It's Canelo against the Golden Child and we're here to tell you how to get a Canelo Alvarez vs Jacobs live stream, no matter where on Earth you are.

Alvarez vs Jacobs - where and when

The Saul 'Canelo' Alvarez vs Daniel Jacobs fight will take place tonight (Saturday, May 4) at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas!

The undercard is now well underway and the main event is set to start at somewhere around 11.30pm ET / 8.30pm PT (so 4.30am BST and 2.30pm AET on Sunday).

At the risk of making a massive understatement, this is a fight worth getting excited about. It sees 28-year-old Mexican Canelo Alvarez (51-1-2, 35 KOs) make a return to the middleweight division after heading up a class to defeat Rocky Fielding for his super middleweight WBA crown. Alvarez - clearly one of the world's best pound-for-pound fighter - currently stands to lose his WBA and WBC middleweight titles.

Daniel Jacobs, 32, (35-2, 29 KOs), of New York City, is putting his IBF title belt on the line. But despite being the American in the ring, he may still find that the Vegas crowd gets behind the awesome Canelo.
