Eddie Hearn, promoter of the WBA super champion in the second middleweight (up to 76.2 kg), Briton Callum Smith (27-0-0, 17 KO), believes that the boxing community underestimates the size of the leader of the pound-for-pound rating, the Mexican Saul Alvarez (53-1-2, 36 KO), on the eve of the fight with his ward.
“And there was indeed a moment when Canelo was considered small at 168 pounds, but remember that he fought his last fight at 175,” Hearn said. – Yes, Callum is big for this weight and on the night of the fight he will be heavier than Canelo, but don’t underestimate Canelo’s size. It is short, but it has no recovery limits [после официального взвешивания]and he will definitely take advantage of it. “
