One of boxing’s pound-for-pound best will be back in action later tonight (Sat., Dec. 19, 2020) live on DAZN from inside the Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas, as Canelo Alvarez (53-1-2, 36 KO) returns to the ring to challenge Callum Smith (27-0, 19 KO) for the WBA (Super) and WBC super-middleweight titles.
Alvarez, who will be making his first appearance since parting ways with Golden Boy Promotions earlier this year, is coming off a sensational knockout victory over Sergey Kovalev in November of 2019. The win helped push Canelo’s record to 11-0-1 over his last 12 bouts, including other key victories over Gennady Golovkin and Daniel Jacobs. This will be another opportunity for Alvarez to prove he can move up in weight and still be an effective boxing superstar.
Smith, on the other hand, is trying to prove he’s one of the best fighters in the world by handing Canelo just his second professional loss in nearly 60 fights. The reigning WBA (Super) and The Ring super-middleweight champion is a towering fighter who is usually able to lean on his length and range to pick opponents apart, but Alvarez has a knack for getting inside and ripping shots to the body. It will be up to Smith to defend those advances and make Alvarez pay from the outer edges.
The super-middleweight title fight should produce some high-level boxing action as Canelo tries to close out 2020 in fashion. Check below for the full viewing details for ‘Canelo vs. Smith’ which goes down later tonight live on DAZN:
