    Reportedly agreed for 18th December in Texas (where fans are allowed).

    Fantastic fight. Good luck Callum (you’ll need it). Canelo is lb for lb number 1 for me (just a shame about the meat stuff). If he does a job on Smith then he cements it. Smith will cause him problems though, massive natural height and weight advantages, he carries power and a good jab. This is Canelo’s toughest fight to date, normally he cherry picks a fighter with everything in his favour. Maybe his thinking the lank of movement from Callum and his latest underwhelming performances make him a prime candidate to expose.

    oh and the fight is on DAZN, so, so much for those who claimed they were in trouble because he left...

    Yes it looks like those who criticsed Hearn for not doing enough for Smiths career are looking rather foolish as Hearn has just landed him the biggest fight going.

    Really hope Smith wins this.

    Rubbish fight imo. Mid rounds stoppage for Canelo.

    Made up for Smith getting the fight. This is fantastic that they’re getting it on. I’ll be cheering him on.

    In regards to the actual fight, a lot will depend on what Canelo puts into the contract beforehand particularly with rehydration clauses. I imagine he will have Smith’s team jumping through hoops to get the fight so he’ll have been calling the shots. I think Ryder set the blue print. He kept successfully moving in on the inside without catching much in return and he landed some decent shots. I think Canelo will do the same but a lot lot better. Could see Canelo going southpaw for a bit too.

    Like it, a lot. Would rather Ryder got the fight in truth but still, hope it all comes together.

    smith's got no chance of beating ginger pubes I'm afraid...he will be well compensated for his 0 and belts though.

    Hope fight happens. For me would be my fight of the year, I have wanted this fight for a long time. As @Twentyman said alot would depend on rehydration clause. If that is not an issue I will be putting dough on Smith. People focusing on a poor performance v Ryder will see a different fighter in this fight. I think Smith will stop him late or me unlucky on cards. Hardest fight for Canelo at 160-168ib.

    Could Garcia v Campbell go on the undercard or too soon for Luke?
