Professional British boxer vs Professional Mexican boxer, Boxing full fight replay September 16, 2016(Saturday) Alvarez vs Smith [47-1-1, 33 KOs] Canelo “Saul” Alvarez against [23-0-1, 13 KOs] Liam Smith.
Alvarez, 26, has won five consecutive fights after losing a majority decision to Floyd Mayweather in September 2013. He is considered one of the best pound-for-pound boxers in the world and has looked particularly sharp in recent fights. Alvarez enters the bout as a -1200 favorite compared to Smith at +700.
The timing and the nationality of his opponent for this upcoming bout are interesting given what transpired last Saturday. Gennady “GGG” Golovkin, easily considered Alvarez’s most prestigious potential opponent, defeated top English boxer Kell Brook, a welterweight champion who moved up to middleweight, by a fifth-round TKO at 02 Arena in London.
Now Alvarez will be fighting an even bigger underdog from England, and after he earned a convincing knockout victory over perhaps the most known English boxer, Amir Khan, in May.

FULL FIGHT RECAP PREVIEW
Luis Pabon is the referee for this WBO junior middleweight championship. As expected, the vast majority of the crowd is berserk for “Canelo.” They meet in the center of the ring and trade jabs. Alvarez backs Smith up and then fires off a left hook, but the Brit blocks it. Smith takes another step back and swallows a right, but he’s okay. Canelo tosses out two jabs before digging a left hook to the body behind a left uppercut on the inside. Smith throws a left hook upstairs but it finds only gloves. Canelo rattles off a smooth combo of jabs to the body and head. “Beefy” looks a little gun shy as he flicks his jab out. Canelo digs a series of rights to the body, making Smith to grin at him. It’s all Canelo in the first. 10-9 Alvarez.
