    Eddie just announced for December 19th. Something to look forward to. No skysports logo on the post I take it this will be first fight on dazn uk

    Looks that way. Probably the DAZN UK launch fight after Garcia v Campbell was postponed.

    Looking forward to this. Expecting a convincing Canelo win.

    Good fight this although Sky won’t really like Smith being exclusively on DAZN which could cause further friction. Sky/DAZN need a resolution pronto.

    4 weeks to prep for Smith while Canelo has been in shape all year? GTFO

    Make no mistake, Alvarez always manages to squeeze in every advantage he can, I hope there's no rehydration clauses otherwise, with this little time, Smith is screwed.

    Smith is screwed anyway.

    This is a rampant miss match.

    Can he do any better than Rocky Fielding did?

    Seen a photo of Smith the other day training, and he is carrying weight around his belly. Hopefully he can get weight off safely, if so we have a fight of the ages. Win, lose or draw Smith will go up through the levels (it's in him). Cmon Smith.

    He’s not exclusively with anyone. Took a fight with Canelo in the US which is to be shown around the world by DAZN. Same with Brook last week.
    Sky know their business. If they wanted to put the money up for Canelo to fight smith on Sky PPV I am sure they would have. Money is not there for that in the UK and Sky know they will have a big battle on their hands once DAZN launch across the world as they will be able to buy rights across the globe to the fights.

    Smith us the ring magazine champ and best fighter at super middle. Granted Canelo is the favourite but it’s not like Canelo is fighting Yildrim

    Massive size difference between the two. People will point Canelo beating a CW world champion in Kovalev but Kovalev doesnt have the physical size advantages that Smith has.

    Height: 6'0
    Reach: 72 1/2

    Height: 5'8
    Reach: 70 1/2

    Height: 6'3

    As much as I agree that Canelo does always (appear) to gain every advantage, I am 100% certain that Smith wasn't sat at home in his underpants eating junk food having a few cans when he saw a twitter notification telling him that this fight was confirmed!

    Smith should be in shape anyway - He hasn't fought for a year. He must have been due to fight around about now / next month anyway. Just a bit of 'fine tuning' to be done.

    How bad Canelo is for staying in the gym all year round, how unprofessional.

    And Smith has been training for ages anyway

    I hope so... I like alvarez but I'm sick of having to put asterisks next to half his wins
