Callum Smith: A Lot Of People Bypassing Bivol, Canelo Win Is No Foregone Conclusion

NEW YORK – Don’t count Callum Smith among those who sense easy work is ahead for Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez. The former WBA light heavyweight titlist remains convinced that Alvarez (57-1-2, 39KOs)—Smith’s lone conqueror—will have all sorts of fits against the naturally bigger Dmitry Bivol (19-0, 11KOs) this Saturday at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. Bivol defends his WBA Light Heavyweight title in Saturday’s DAZN Pay-Per-View main event, where he serves as a considerable underdog to come out on top.

Callum Smith: I Had To Move Up To 175 Pounds For Me Own Performances' Sake

Callum Smith admits that he just wasn’t good enough to beat Canelo Alvarez on December 19. The former WBA super middleweight champion won’t blame problems making weight, a truncated training camp or anything other than that indisputable fact for his lopsided loss to Alvarez in their 12-round, 168-pound title fight nine months ago at Alamodome in San Antonio. Liverpool’s Smith simply is looking forward to fighting for the first time at the light heavyweight limit of 175 pounds when he encounters Lenin Castillo in a 10-rounder Saturday night in London.
