The winner from Alvarez vs Smith Jr. will face the winner from Umar Salamov and Maksim Vlasov for the WBO title. This match has been long overdue, as it is was originally scheduled on July 16th but had to be pushed further since Alvarez suffered a shoulder injury.

Joe has been training since June and was all set to fight Alvarez in July; it was safe to say that he was not happy to hear the news of the delay. His trainer, Jerry Capobianco, clearly mentioned that Joe was in good shape and was completely prepared to compete against Alvarez.

He said, “Joe’s been so good, listening, and head on real straight. I think he gets it, he had a title shot, and now another one is possible, and he understands that doesn’t always happen. It happens as you get older.”

On the other hand, Alvarez, even though recovering from an injury says that he is confident in his skills and will definitely emerge victorious against Joe. “This fight is critical for both of our careers. I respect Joe Smith, who has proven to be an elite fighter. However, I have all the tools to beat him, and that’s what I intend to do. My goal is to become a two-time light heavyweight world champion.”

If this wasn’t enough to tweak your excitement and anticipation, Top Rank’s, Bob Arum says ““I can’t wait to sit back and watch this fight, which features two of the light heavyweight division’s biggest punchers, it’s a 50-50 fight and a great way to kick off our return to MGM Grand.”

Our fighters have been training restlessly and ready than ever, so much so that Smith Jr. took a guess that Alvarez’s injury was no accident and he had only done so to gain more time to practice and out outperform him.

However, Cap is confident that Smith is in great shape regardless, and he should be channeling all that anger towards the fight against Alvarez in order to get one step closer to the title.
