Get ready for the biggest super-middleweight title battle- Matchroom boxing has finally announced a date and venue for the most waited fight. Canelo Alvarez vs Callum Smith is all set to take place on 19th December at The Alamodome!
In a press release, Canelo Alvarez announced his 2020 boxing debut and challenged Callum Smith to a fight for his WBC super-middleweight champion title. According to Callum Smith’s trainer, Joe Gallagher, Alvarez chose Smith because he believed that he was an easy target for an easy match.
However, Gallagher says that even though the fight was incredibly short noticed, they aren’t worried about it. Their preparation is going completely fine, and Smith being the best boxer in the 168-pound division is ready.
He says Callum has a stellar record, and his wins speak for themselves. “Callum Smith has performed, you go through the resume,” said Gallagher. “His eighth fight, Patrick Mendy, a very good Patrick Mendy, English title, knocked out in one round. Domestic blockbuster, local derby with Rocky Fielding, one round. Hadillah Mohoumadi, just lost to James DeGale over 12 rounds, knocked out one round. Then [Smith] fought George Groves, seven rounds. Hassan N’Dam, the biggest stage, New York, Madison Square Garden, just beaten Martin Murray, knocked out in three rounds. John Ryder? I’m not saying he wasn’t motivated but was he training as hard as he’d train for Canelo? You’d have to ask him that. But did he look at John Ryder as ‘Jack Armfield’s beaten him, Rocky Fielding’s beaten him, Billy Joe’s beaten him…’ No fear factors. If people are banking on the Callum Smith who fought John Ryder showing up for this, they’re making a mistake.”

Moreover, Callum Smith is happy to be back into the ring and he’s confident that he will outperform Canelo Alvarez.
“I feel good. It’s a fight that has been talked about for most of 2020, and it’s been on the table and off the table, and then the pandemic came and there were question marks if we were even going to fight at all in 2020,” said Callum to DAZN. “It’s a fight that I’ve wanted for a while. I want the biggest fights possible, and the biggest fight possible for me now is Canelo Alvarez. It’s been frustrating but I was always planning on fighting towards the end of the year.”
