Canelo Alvarez-Callum Smith live results and analysis

Boxing

Canelo Alvarez meets WBA super middleweight titlist Callum Smith in the main event of Saturday’s DAZN card at the Alamodome in San Antonio.

Alvarez (53-1-2, 36 KOs) hasn’t fought since an 11th-round TKO victory over Sergey Kovalev in November 2019. This is his first fight since he became a free agent in November, after severing ties with longtime promoter Golden Boy Promotions.

Smith (27-0, 19 KOs) won the title by defeating George Groves in the World Boxing Super Series final in September 2018. He has defended the belt twice since then.

In the co-main event, top heavyweight prospect Frank Sanchez (16-0, 12 KOs) takes on Julian Fernandez (14-2, 11 KOs) in a 10-round battle. Sanchez stepped up in competition this year and dominated Joey Dawejko in a one-sided unanimous decision in March, before stopping Brian Howard in the fourth round on Nov. 7.

Also on the card, Christian Alan Gomez Duran (18-2-1, 16 KOs) faces journeyman Angel Hernandez (17-15-2, 11 KOs) in an eight-round welterweight bout, and Raymond Ford (7-0, 3 KOs) takes on Juan Antonio Lopez (15-7, 6 KOs) in a six-round junior lightweight fight.
