After Canelo Alvarez signed the richest contract in sports history seven days ago, plenty of boxers want to try their might against the highest paid athlete. One of the latest callouts came from Callum Smith, who wants to clash with the Mexican champ in Las Vegas.
The number one super middleweight boxer expressed his interest to lock horns with Alvarez, following his move to his division, where he will take on Rocky Fielding as his first assignment.
The 6-foot-3 Smith., who is also under DAZN, said he is very interested to face Canelo in a fight.
“If he stays at super middle, then I’ll definitely be putting my name in the hat for his next fight at the weight. He’s a special fighter, but I don’t believe he’s the biggest at super middle, and I think that gives any super middleweight a slight advantage over him, what they probably lack in ability up against him. But if he stays there, then definitely I would love to fight him.”
Alvarez will debut in the super middleweight division this December against Fielding, who was beaten by Smith two years ago via a first-round stoppage.
