    An underdog triumph might be considered worthy of a spot alongside the iconic away wins by the likes of Ken Buchanan, Lloyd Honeyghan, and Kell Brook.

    believes, like Smith, that his undefeated 6ft 3in powerhouse is better than his 7-2 odds suggest.

    “It won’t be Honeyghan beating Curry, because nobody gave Honeyghan a chance”, Hearn told

    I feel it would be a huge upset but would it really rank alongside Honeyghan`s win over Cury in terms of how big an upset it would be? Are the 7-2 odds a bit over the top?

    Obviously, Hearn would say that

    Canelo will batter him.


    "Callum Smith is huge though"...so? he stands square on with a high guard and his long-range stuff is nothing special. A close tough fight with Rhyder who Canelo will be the same size as. I think Canelo will stop him after toying with him early.

    Canelo would have watched that fight and got a massive hard on at such an opponent. Almost tailor made.

    Andre Ward and a non shot Kovalev would have been interesting, Canelo is smart enough not to mess around with that fire though.

    I just hope the Texas Commission is still as honest as it was when ****ie Cole ran it back when I was there & they dont allow any Clenelo deals or hired judges. It would be good to see Clenelo in a fair straight down the middle fight for once

    If Smith was a jabber and mover, id give him a chance because he has power especially the left hook. but he isnt that, he doesnt use his reach advantages enough. 6'3 vs 5'9 canelo has no right to get inside.
