A year mostly devoid of memorable boxing fights gets a final marquee draw when Canelo Alvarez faces Callum Smith on Saturday night for the The Ring and WBA super-middleweight titles.
Alvarez already holds one win over his rival’s family, besting brother Liam Smith by knockout in 2016. Like Callum right now, Liam was undefeated heading into that matchup.
There will be six fights before the Canelo headliner, with the highly anticipated action starting at 8 p.m. ET.
The best place to watch the entire Alvarez vs. Smith card is on DAZN, which owns exclusive rights to broadcast the fight in the United States.
