Saul “Canelo” Alvarez (53-1-2) is a four division world champion boxer, and he’s looking to take on the best fighters he can for legacy and also maybe money. He is the biggest name boxer in the sport, at least among active non-exhibition fights. Unlike Mike Tyson or Floyd Mayweather, he isn’t fighting former champs in their 50s or YouTubers. Canelo is considered the number one pound-for-pound boxer by most boxing experts because he’s faced fighters like Miguel Cotto, Gennady “GGG” Golovkin, Amir Khan and Sergey Kovalev.

It’s been over a year since Canelo’s last fight, where he knocked out Kovalev in spectacular fashion. That’s been due in part to the pandemic, but also a contract dispute with his former partners at Golden Boy Promotions. Now Canelo is a free agent, and he says he wants to fight the best boxers he can with no long term deals. That starts with a quest to get a true world title at Super Middleweight. He picked the best fighter in that weight to kick things off so this may be his toughest test since his only loss to Floyd Mayweather.

Callum “Mundo” Smith (27-0) is the undefeated WBA and The Ring Super Middleweight world champion, and the winner of the 2020 Canelo sweepstakes. Facing the biggest name in the sport raises the profile of any fighter, even one with a high regard like Smith. It also comes with a big payday, and Smith is fortunate to end up with this fight. Originally Canelo was set to face Billy Joe Saunders and GGG in 2020, but the pandemic changed those plans. No Smith has an opportunity to pull a huge upset that could establish him as a worldwide star in his own right.

Beyond the world titles, Smith’s other major achievement was winning the World Boxing Super Series tournament and the Muhammad Ali trophy for best super middleweight fighter.Now he hopes to show Canelo what hes capable of, and get some revenge for his brother Liam Smith. Canelo knocked out Callum’s brother back in 2016.
