Pound for pound number one boxer, Canelo Alvarez, returns to the boxing ring tonight for the first time since knocking out Sergey Kovalev in November 2019. He takes on Callum Smith from the UK, with the WBA Super World Super Middleweight title and the vacant WBC World Super Middleweight title on the line.
The fight takes place in San Antonio, Texas at the Alamodome. It’s promoted by Matchroom Boxing, and Canelo himself after his dramatic split from Golden Boy Promotions and DAZN earlier this year. The promoter and Canelo had an ugly breakup for the inability to get Canelo the fights he wants.
Callum Smith is one of the best super middleweights in the world and won the World Boxing Super Series in season 1. In the first round, he won in a convincing decision over Erik Skoglund. Then in the semi finals, he defeated undefeated boxer and kickboxing legend Nieky Holzken. Then, in the finals, Smith defeated George Groves by seventh round knockout to claim the Muhammad Ali trophy and the WBA Super and The Ring super middleweight titles.
Also on the card are names like Frank Sanchez, Raymond Ford and Alexis Eduardo Molina. The ring walk for Canelo Alvarez and Callum Smith will be at 11:15 eastern standard time.
