STORY: England’s Amir Khan and Saul “Canelo” Alvarez both weighed in at 155 pounds for their WBC title fight on Saturday in Las Vegas

Challenger Khan will go into the fight as a huge underdog in his clash with Alvarez.

Englishman Khan has moved up two weight divisions to take on the flame-haired Mexican, whose only loss in 48 professional fights was to undefeated American Floyd Mayweather Jr. in 2013.

Khan (31-3, 19 knockouts) is a two-time former world champion and has oozed confidence in Las Vegas this week despite not having fought since his unanimous decision over American Chris Algieri nearly a year ago.

Former WBA and WBC super welterweight champion Alvarez, who lost both world titles on a majority decision to Mayweather, is a 5-1 favourite for an intriguing matchup that will pit the Mexican’s power against the Englishman’s speed.

The 25-year-old from Guadalajara, who has an impressive record of 46-1-1, including 32 knockouts claimed the WBC middleweight crown with a unanimous decision over Miguel Cotto in November.
