Disconnected from Golden Boy Promotions by legal means, Canelo Álvarez soon agreed to his next fight as a free agent to give rise to that return that he had been waiting for since September, when the boxing machinery began to reactivate after the break forced by the pandemic of coronavirus. It will be on December 19, at the Alamodome in San Antonio , and his rival will be the British Callum Smith , the WBA super middleweight champion.
The last fight of the Mexican multi-champion had been on November 2, 2019, when he defeated Sergey Kovalev by knockout in the eleventh round, at the MGM Gran Arena in Las Vegas, and thus won the WBO light heavyweight title that he became world champion of four different divisions.
