Canelo Alvarez is finally set to make his one and only appearance in the ring on Saturday night when he takes on Callum Smith in the main event from San Antonio. Alvarez, who gained free agency from both Golden Boy Promotions and streaming service DAZN in a legal battle earlier this year, will fight Smith for a pair of super middleweight titles on the streaming platform.

Smith is the WBA titleholder and his belt will be on the line, as will the vacant WBC belt after the sanctioning body leapfrogged mandatory challenger Avni Yildirim to hang the belt on the fight. The winner will need to face Yildirim in their next fight, according to the WBC. Were that situation not already confusing enough, Alvarez also is the WBA “regular” champion, which is a step below Smith’s status as “super” champion.

The fight is interesting in the physical differences between the two men. While Alvarez is the favorite and arguably the best pound-for-pound fighter in the world, he faces a (literal) tall task in the 6-foot-3 Smith, who will hold a considerable size advantage over the 5-foot-8 Alvarez.
