    Default Canelo vs Callum Smith on Dec 19th

    It appears to be official. The matchup will finally occur. Only glitch for me... it's on DAZN.

    Seems Canelo the free agent was negotiating with PBC, but PBC (greedy bastards) wanted to retain Canelo for 2-3 fights and Canelo refused.

    In any case, I'm glad this fight is finally being made. Should be a good one.

    December 19 will be Canelo Álvarez's (53-1-2, 36KO) first bout as a free agent, he will challenge undefeated 168lbs WBA champion Callum Smith (27-0-0, 19KO) for the title. Canelo finalized the deal with Smith's promoter Eddie Hearns, and will be broadcast on the DAZN platform.

    Canelo was negotiating with PBC to face Calleb Plant, but PBC wanted to retain Canelo with 2 to 3 fights. First facing Anthony Dirrell and then doing the fight against Plant on PPV, Canelo did not like the idea of ​​a contract for more than one fight. Hearns agreed with Canelo to do business one fight at a time.

    Canelo now has control of his career and can negotiate with any company without contractual ties. Alvarez is (1-0-, 1KO) against the Smith brothers. Canelo KOed Liam Smith in 9 rounds, taking away his undefeated record and his WBO 154lbs crown.

    Easy to make now he's fucked Golden Boy off 😉

    4 weeks ain't long to prepare either, Canelos probably been training for Smith for weeks already and will have a rehydration clause where only he can come In at over 180llbs on fight night.

    The slippery ginger drug cheat will have all the advantages here.

    Callum Smith by decision, credit to Canelo for taking this dangerous fight, both have probably been training during the lockdown as there is nothing else to do.

    I think a lot depends on fight night weights. I'm pretty sure about Canelo ballooning up significantly (which is why I don't buy his "not being a legit 175 to challenge Beterbiev). But Callum I know nothing about as far as size and fight night weights.

    I am sure Callum is naturally bigger than Alvarez and is huge for super middleweight. He out classed and destroyed George Groves to win the Ali trophy and mini-tournament.

    If he brings that motivation and form with all things being equal I am quite certain he beats Canelo. I see Smith start fast and build a strong lead as he has the height and reach advantage. Canelo fighting back mid rounds but Callum finishing strong.

    The only worry I have is the judges but a decisive lead will be enough to win the fight.

    Good fight.

    Callum has a lethal left hook, height, size and we shouldn’t judge his whole career on the Ryder loss..I meant fight.

    Ok so... so much for the size advantage. Box checked off.

    Judges. Ahh.... yeah, THERE'S a worry. Seems the fight's in Texas (Why TF doesn't Canelo fight anywhere outside of Vegas and Texas??). Thankfully, crowd noise won't be a factor to sway already biased judges.

    But as to what you stated: "... but a decisive lead will be enough to win the fight." C'mon man.

    You're a veteran boxing fan, just like me.

    Do you really think a decisive lead will be enough to win the fight?

    If it's not a knockout, there would have to be enough knockDOWNS, which of course require 10-8 rounds, to make it mathematically impossible for even CJ Ross to give the fight to Canelo.

    Absolutely perfect fight for Callum. He makes a load of money and win or lose , he will go to Light Heavyweight next fight.
    When I say win or lose, I mean lose. He won’t knock Canelo out, and he won’t get a points decision in the US.

    I don't think the judges or weights will make any difference here. Canelo wins handily because he's much better, imo.

    Canelo wouldnt have taken this if he didn't see something in Callum.

    Calum Chin sticking out if he can get near it.
    Calum uses size well, but not the boxer Canelo is.

    This will be good whilst it lasts as Smith likes to fight on the inside and has serious leverage and power. Be shocked if it goes the distance. However, Canelo has an iron jaw and ultimately is top elite level.

    And for everyone thinking it's a shit fight because of "Ryder" should know Smith has always blown hot and cold from the start of his career. Boxing is littered throughout history with fighters motivation levels determining their performace, not that context matters to modern boxing experts/fans.
