One of the premier fighters in the world will make his 2020 debut on Saturday night in San Antonio, TX, and we’re here to talk a bunch about Canelo Alvarez battling England’s Callum Smith on our show.
Host TJ Rives is back with special guests talking about the Unified Super Middleweight Championship being on the line in the Alamodome on DAZN Streaming Service and PPV.
First ,TJ goes to England and gets the insight, once again, of David Payne, aka “The Boxing Writer,” who has tremendous perspective on what kind of chance unbeaten Callum Smith has of upsetting the four Division World Champion Alvarez? Specifically, how will Alvarez deal with the tremendous size and reach disadvantage that he will have in this 168-pound bout?
Then, TJ welcomes in Sr. writer of BigFightWeekend.com, Marquis Johns along with Boxingscene.com Sr. writer, Keith idec. Keith is in San Antonio to talk more about Canelo vs. Callum Smith, and he gives us an idea of what kind of atmosphere will be inside the Alamodome. Plus, will Smith will have any kind of a fan presence among the around 15,000 that are expected to attend?
Canelo is currently a strong -700 favorite at MyBookie.ag to win this scheduled 12 rounder.
And, will there be any controversy with the judges and/or referee, as are often the case in Canelo bouts?
Then, TJ and Marquis will not only look more at the fight card Saturday night at the Alamodome, but also the Gennady Golovkin IBF middleweight title defense Friday night in Hollywood Florida. And, the guys also discuss, the Premier Boxing Champions on Showtime fight card that will take place at the Mohegan Sun Casino in Connecticut.
That card features up and coming Welterweight contender, Jaron “Boots” Ennis of Philly, will be in action in a non-title fight.
