Britain’s Callum Smith faces the toughest test of his unbeaten career so far as he goes up against living legend Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez this weekend.
Smith, who is 27 and 0, beat John Ryder last year to retain his WBA (Super) and The Ring super-middleweight titles.
He will now put them on the line this weekend as he faces off against Canelo.
The remarkable Mexican won his 56th fight when he saw off Sergey Kovalev in his last bout to become a four-weight world champion.
He’ll be looking to add Smith’s title – plus the vacant WBC super middleweight crown – to his collection on Saturday night.
It should be a thrilling fight and the UK will be behind Smith as he look to pull off a huge win and topple the great Canelo.
