Callum Smith will defend his WBA (Super) and The Ring super-middleweight titles against Canelo Alvarez in San Antonio. This will be Smith’s third defence of his titles as he faces the pound-for-pound king of the boxing world.

Canelo Alvarez (Record 53-1-2):


This is Canelo Alvarez’s first fight in 13 months, having last beat Sergey Kovalev for the WBO light heavyweight title with an 11th round KO.

At middleweight, Canelo has won his last three fights, defeating Gennady Golovkin, Rocky Fielding and Daniel Jacobs.

He has also previously defeated Smith’s older brother Liam back in September 2016, winning via a 9th round KO.

36 of his 53 professional career wins have come via knockout, while he can also boast never being knocked down in his professional career.

Callum Smith (Record 27-0)


The unbeaten Callum Smith faces the toughest test of his career after capitalising on Billy Joe Saunders’ failure to land this fight.

Smith was uninspiring to say the least in his last showing, defeating John Ryder in a unanimous decision that many felt could’ve gone the way of the Londoner.

Still, it was another victory for Smith whose most notable career win to date came against George Groves. The KO victory saw him win the WBA (Super) and The Ring super-middleweight titles and the World Boxing Super Series.

Standing at 6 ft 3, Smith has got to make the most of his height and reach advantage to really test Canelo in this fight.
