The long-awaited decision on a next date and opponent has finally been made, as Guadalaraja’s Alvarez (53-1-2, 36KOs) has settled on arguably the most dangerous option. The pound-for-pound king will next face Liverpool’s Callum Smith (27-0, 19KOs), with their super middleweight championship to take place December at a location to be determined in Texas. Alvarez confirmed the news via his Instagram Live channel on Tuesday. He will attempt the third defense of the title he won in a 7th round knockout of George Groves in September 2018. Alvarez owns a secondary version of the title, though a win here will earn him the right to declare himself a true four-division titlist. For this fight, Alvarez will work with Matchroom Boxing's Eddie Hearn-whom also serves as the lead promoter for Smith. For now, it's a fight-by-fight relationship with Hearn and DAZN and currently only for the December 19 headliner.
