Saul 'Canelo' Alvarez will be looking to continue his winning run this weekend when he takes on Avni Yildirim in Miami.
The P4P king is hoping to become Mexico's first undisputed world super-middleweight champion, but to do that he must defend his WBC and WBA straps in the United States on Saturday night.
Fights against Billy Joe Saunders and Gennady Golovkin have already been mooted, but Alvarez has his eyes firmly on Yildirim first.
Alvarez vs Yildirim Betting Odds
Alvarez to win by KO, TKO or disqualification - BET NOW
Alvarez's winning record currently stands at 13 fights, with Floyd Mayweather Jnr the only fighter to beat him as a professional.
He has destroyed some of the world's best boxers in recent years, and it is no surprise to see him priced at 1/50 to win this weekend.
With both fighters known for their power, a draw is highly unlikely, but those that fancy a controversial decision can cover themselves at 50/1, while Yildirim is as big as 20/1 to pull off an upset.
Alvarez's CV is unrivalled in the professional sphere at the minute, with the 30-year-old winning 54 fights to date. He started his career back in 2005 but continues to improve and is arguably the best defensive fighter on the planet, now that former nemesis Mayweather has retired.
The Mexican has beaten the likes of Shane Mosley, James Kirkland, Miguel Cotto, Amir Khan, Golovkin, Daniel Jacobs, Sergey Kovalev and Callum Smith so far in his career.
His speed, power and rock-solid chin make him one of the sport's biggest stars, and he will take some stopping this weekend.
Turkish star Yildirim, in contrast, still has lots to learn inside the squared circle, with 'Mr Robot' winning 21 fights so far.
He has lost on two occasions, both to high-class opposition, with Chris Eubank Jnr and Anthony Dirrell getting the better of him in recent years.
Yildirim has yet to register a real statement victory in his career and his wait for such a win is likely to be extended.
Alvarez vs Yildirim Fight Time
The 12-round super-middleweight bout will take place at the Hard Rock Stadium in Miami this weekend. Ring walks are expected from 4.30am UK time on Sunday, but that is likely to depend on the undercard results.
Alvarez vs Yildirim Prediction
Alvarez to win in round three - BET NOW
Alvarez has only managed one knockout win in his last three fights, but that came at light heavyweight, which suggests he could even move up in weight later in his career.
To save face, Yildirim will try to take the fight into the later rounds, but even if he makes it past halfway, he will be lucky to hear the final bell.
Alvarez's power will be too much, and he is 1/9 to win by KO, TKO or disqualification.
As he did against Smith last year, Alvarez is likely to dictate the tempo of the fight and put Yildirim under pressure from the first bell.
With so much on the line and bigger fights on the horizon, Alvarez is not going to be reckless as he analyses Yildirim's gameplan.
However, an early knockout is still a distinct possibility and Alvarez to win in round three at 6/1 appeals.
