How did we get here
Mike Koppinger, indoor boxing: Alvarez closed his case against Golden Boy Promotions and DAZN earlier this month with a free release from both sides, but now he is shockingly back with the platform, which refused to pay him a $ 35 million bail.
Promoter Eddie Hearn moved quickly to make a one-fight deal with the biggest star in the sport, returning him to the streaming service he once faced. Alvarez gets his wish by sneaking in before the end of 2020 and against the best race available. Smith is considered the best 168 pounds in the world, and Alvarez will chase the title in the fourth category.
What does this mean for Callum Smith?
Copinger: This is a chance for Callum to take revenge on his older brother Liam, who was expelled and stopped by Alvarez in September 201
Will the acronym have any effect on Cinnamon?
Copinger: I doubt. Alvarez is always in the gym and is sparring throughout the reduction. His coach, current coach of the year Eddie Reynoso, always has sharp and ready fighters and Canello will certainly be at the top of his game. He did not stop training in San Diego despite the lawsuit.
