Canelo vs Smith Betting Preview  

Canelo Alvarez (53-1-2, 36 knockouts) is fighting above his natural division in this WBC and WBA super-middleweight title bout. He has an almost immaculate record. The only loss on Canelo Alvarez's card came back in 2013 but there was no disgrace in going down by a majority decision to Floyd Mayweather Jr.. Since then, the Mexican has gone from strength to strength since, winning 11 and drawing one. Last time out, he stopped Sergey Kovalev at light heavyweight in Round 11.

Canelo is regarded by many as the number one pound for pound ranked boxer. He has won world titles in four different divisions, all the way up from welterweight to light-heavyweight. He boasts wins over Shane Mosley, Austin Trout, Erislandy Lara, Miguel Cotto, Amir Khan, Gennadiy Golovkin, Daniel Jacobs, Rocky Fielding and Callum's brother Liam Smith. As a consequence he has one of the finest resumes in the sport.

Callum Smith boasts a stunning 27-0-0 record and fearsome 70% knockout average. He will make his third defence of the title he won via the knockout of George Groves back in September 2018. The 30-year-old boxer-puncher has since defeated the undersized Hassan N’Dam by TKO in the 3rd Round and John Ryder by Unanimous Decision in title defenses. The latter was a bout the Liverpudlian was expected to win comfortably but was pushed hard by The Gorilla and suffered a cut above his eye in the process.

The unbeaten Brit stands at 6ft 3inches tall with a 78 inch reach, making him a giant of the division. He will tower over Canelo in this one and will be eager to make height and reach advantage count. Smith has remarkable power and a varied skillset that translates a refined fight IQ. He doesn't have the same resume as Canelo as the only truly notable name on his record is George Groves - who was a long way past his prime.

Our Smith vs Canelo Predictions  

Both fighters have the power to get the other out of there early. The main worry for Smith is how easily John Ryder got up close to him last time out. Canelo would do big damages should he can get up close to the Brit with that level of ease. As a result, we expect Canelo to win by decision or even before the final bell.
