GGG Trilogy In Jeopardy, Smith Could Face Canelo

If Gennadiy Golovkin and Canelo Alvarez’ teams are unable to come to a consensus, Callum Smith may step in to get revenge against Alvarez.

In 2016, Alvarez would drop Callum’s brother, Liam, who told the BBC that his brother has the best shot to derail Alvarez.

He told BBC Sport: “I think if anyone beats ‘Canelo’, it’s Callum Smith. It’s so good to pit your wits against someone like that.

“‘Canelo’ is class, but that is not the be all and end all. Callum is bigger, can box, fight and can dig in. I would be massively confident in him going into that fight and believe he could upset the world.”

“Callum has given us all inspiration,” Smith, continued.

”He is so calm and we all played a part in that. Every stage he has come to, he had been there before with one of his brothers. We told people for years how good he was. People maybe thought we were talking up our younger brother. We were not telling lies, he was the best out of us and is slowly but surely proving that.”
