If you cannot make it to "Sin City" to see boxing's biggest attractions taking on one of the best at 160 pounds, you can still watch the bout live and exclusively on DAZN.

Alvarez (51-1-2, 35 KOs) is unbeaten in his last nine fights (9-0-1) since suffering the only blemish on his record to Floyd Mayweather Jr. in September 2013. After two brutal wars with Gennady Golovkin, Alvarez moved up to super middleweight in December and plowed through Rocky Fielding in three rounds to capture the WBA belt and become a three-division world champion.

Jacobs (35-2, 29 KOs) rebounded in a big way after he lost the WBA title in a very narrow decision that many boxing pundits felt the "Miracle Man" won to Gennady Golovkin in March 2017. He won three straight bouts with the highlight of defeating Serhiy Derevianchenko by split decision in October to win the IBF title.

The sentiment is the 32-year-old Jacobs will be the stiffest test of Alvarez's career, which is saying something considering the Mexican star has been inside the ring two times with Golovkin and Mayweather.

Here’s all the information you need to watch Canelo vs. Jacobs, including how to live stream the fight online with a DAZN subscription.
