Canelo Alvarez has had a tumultuous year trying to establish what his future in the ring will look like, fighting with Golden Boy Promotions and DAZN over contractual issues that arose at the start of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Alvarez hasn’t fought since November 2019, a hiatus that has seen other elite contenders get more attention from boxing fans. But Saturday night the wait ends with his super middleweight title fight against Callum Smith.
At Smith, who holds an unbeaten 27-0 record, Alvarez gets one of his toughest recent tests. Smith peaked at 30 and has two knockouts in his last three wins.
Alvarez vs Smith will mark DAZN’s biggest American streaming event in 2020, which hopes the service will give subscribers a boost by 2021.
