Who is on the Canelo vs Jacobs undercard?

CANELO will put his middleweight belts on the line on Saturday, May 5.

Kicking off the card is Sadam Ali, with the ‘World Kid’ looking to get himself back into title contention following defeat to Jaime Munguia last May.
Unbeaten Vergil Ortiz Jr continues his promising rise up the super lightweight ranks with a battle against Mauricio Herrera, whilst the first title fight of the evening pits Lamont Roach against the tough Jonathan Oquendo.

That bout will decide the WBO international super featherweight crown, before John Ryder and Bilal Akkawy go head-to-hed for the interim WBA super-middlweight crown.

Here’s how the evening is set to pan out in Vegas –

  • Saul Alvarez vs Daniel Jacobs – WBC, WBA and IBF middleweight title
  • John Ryder (27-4) vs Bilal Akkawy (20-0-1) – interim WBA super-middleweight
  • Lamont Roach (18-0) vs Jonathan Oquendo (30-5) – WBO international super featherweight
  • Vergil Ortiz Jr (12-0) vs Mauricio Herrera (24-8) – super lightweight
  • Sadam Ali (27-2) vs Anthony Young (20-2) – welterweight
