Canelo will move up to 175 pounds on November 2nd in a bid to become a four-weight world champion against Russian puncher Sergey Kovalev.
The Mexican has already claimed super-welterweight, middleweight, and super-middleweight straps during a stellar career.
Despite the debate over the 168-pound belt taken from Rocky Fielding in December, Canelo would be recognized as a bonafide ruler at the quartet of class.
Kovalev will put his WBO light-heavyweight title on the line when the pair collide on streaming platform DAZN.
The fight will take place at the MGM Grand Garden Arena and is expected to be confirmed this week.
For his part, Canelo has already pocketed a whopping amount due to his $350m+ deal with DAZN. Kovalev is set to bank over $10m.
