The undisputed super-middleweight title contest between Alvarez and Charlo will take place on Sunday, September 30th, 2023.
Official timings are yet to be confirmed, but it's expected that the card will begin at around 8 PM ET, with the ring walks for the main event expected to take place at around 11 PM ET.
Both fighters announced via their social media accounts that the fight will take place in Las Vegas, Nevada.
There has been no further indication as to which venue will host the super-fight, although it's likely to be at the T-Mobile Arena.
The T-Mobile Arena has a rich history of hosting sporting events and has been the venue for some huge boxing and MMA cards.
Alvarez made his Las Vegas debut in 2010, when he beat Jose Cotto at MGM Grand Garden Arena.
The Mexican has fought 16 times in Vegas and has featured at the T-Mobile Arena on seven occasions, with his most recent appearance at the venue coming in September 2022 when he beat Gennady Golovkin.
Charlo has fought in the state of Nevada on five occasions, but he is yet to appear at the T-Mobile Arena.
Canelo reunited with broadcaster DAZN and the fight will be carried as a pay-per-view on DAZN.
Yes. Alvarez is the undisputed super-middleweight champion and he will defend his belts in Las Vegas.
Alvarez made history when he became the first undisputed super-middleweight champion by beating Caleb Plant via knockout in 2021.
He unified all four belts in the division in less than 12 months.
The 32-year-old successfully defended those titles against Britain's John Ryder in Mexico on 6th May 2023.
Charlo holds the WBO, IBF, WBA and WBC light-middleweight belts, but they won't be on the line.
Canelo has a phenomenal record and is the undisputed super-middleweight king. The Mexican has lost just two of his 63 professional contests.
One of those was against all-time great Floyd Mayweather and the other when moving up to light-heavyweight to take on Dmitry Bivol.
Canelo has beaten Billy Joe Saunders, Callum Smith, Sergey Kovalev, Amir Khan, Liam Smith, Plant, Cotto and Golovkin twice to name a few of the fighters on a stacked record and he may still have plenty left to offer.
The Guadalajara boxer has seen 39 of his 59 victories come by stoppage and he is a ferocious combination puncher.
Charlo has just one defeat on his 37-fight card and that was a shock loss to Tony Harrison back in 2018. Iron Man went off to get his revenge on Harrison.
The 33-year-old also has a draw against Brian Castano on his record, but he beat the Argentinean in a rematch in May 2022.
The Texas puncher has good wins over Vanes Martirosyan and Jeison Rosario and carries respectable power in this division.
Charlo has 19 victories by knockout and 16 by decision, with eight of his last nine wins coming inside the distance.
The undercard has yet to be confirmed.
