It all goes down tomorrow night (Sat., May 4, 2019) live on DAZN from inside the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, as WBC and WBA middleweight champion Canelo Alvarez (51-1-2, 35 KOs) meets up with IBF middleweight king Daniel Jacobs (35-2, 29 KOs) in the main event of the evening.

But before Canelo tries to win his second-straight fight since inking a monster deal with DAZN late last year, the two middleweights stepped foot on the scale earlier tonight for official weigh ins (complete results here). While fight fans were pleased to see both fighters successfully hit the 160-pound benchmark, they were more interested in the final staredown between Canelo and “Miracle Man,” which quickly turned ugly.

Check out the face off above, courtesy of DAZN, as both middleweight champions got physical during their onstage encounter. Find out what each fighter had to say about their scuffle below:
