Rene Alvarado looks for revenge against Andrew Cancio on Saturday, Nov. 23, almost four full years since their first bout. He’ll have his shot at Alvarado-Cancio 2, which takes place at Fantasy Springs Resort Casino in Indio, Calif., live and exclusively on DAZN. Cancio had an eighth-round knockout in their first fight back in December of 2015, but a lot has changed since then.
The 30-year-old Cancio (21-4-2, 16 KOs) knocked out Alberto Machado in February of this year to win the WBA belt. Alvarado (31-8, 20 KOs) has compiled an 8-2 record since their first fight and he’s won seven straight.

Rene Alvarado and I have fought before, and now he’s earned another opportunity to fight me. I know he’ll be very well prepared to try and take my WBA world title. However, I plan on defending my championship in impressive style once again and show boxing fans in attendance and watching on DAZN that I’m the best 130-pound fighter in the world, period!”
