The Canelo Alvarez raffle may end soon, and this battle has become the round that many fans hope the Mexican superstar desires.
ESPN’s Salvador Rodriguez reported that Alvarez will face Callum Smith in Texas in December. Earlier it was speculated that Caleb Plant could answer the phone, and the name of Billy Joe Saunders was also re-proposed, but it seemed to be Smith.
The date will be December 18th, 19th or 20th (Friday to Sunday) and the venue will be AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas or Alamodome in San Antonio.
Alvarez recently parted ways with “Golden Boy”
Canelo (53-1-2, 36 KO) won the WBA’s second “world” championship with a weight of 168 pounds in December 2018, beating Rocky Fielding in Canelo’s DAZN debut. He has been fighting 160 and 175 since then, but his attention has been on 168, and Smith (27-0, 19 KO) is still regarded as the number one dog in the department, even though the November decision surpassed John Lai. Germany is doubtful. In 2019, this is Smith’s last battle.
30-year-old Smith (Smith) won the WBA recognized “Super World” title for $168, and is also the champion of the “Lord of the Rings” magazine. The Canelo battle will win the world’s recognized first place with a weight of 168 pounds. Even if someone has doubts about Smith, other big figures in the department have not taken any measures to provide Smith with a particularly strong proof.
But all this is gone, and it looks like we will have a huge weekend in mid-December. We will schedule Canelo-Smith on a certain date from Friday to Sunday. Gennadiy Golovkin hopes to return to the game on the same weekend as DAZN. Now, Golden Boy hopes to have a rearranged Ryan Garcia-Luke Campbell battle that weekend. Will be on DAZN. If DAZN and Canelo work together and fight this battle, it will be a huge weekend for the streaming service industry just a few weeks after the streaming service enters the global market.
