Saul Canelo Alvarez Eyeing Unification Fight With Callum Smith At Wembley

Saul Canelo Alvarez Eyeing Unification Fight With Callum Smith At Wembley

Saul Canelo Alvarez destroyed Rocky Fielding in three rounds on Saturday night and now the Mexican is eyeing up a fight in England, at Wembley Stadium, against Callum Smith for the WBA super-middleweight title.

There aren't many boxers in the world who are better than Saul Canelo Alvarez or bigger draws than the Mexican. His two fights with Gennady Golovkin caught the attention of every fan of the sport.

On Saturday night Canelo added to the WBA (Super) and WBC middleweight titles, won by beating GGG in their second fight, by winning the WBA (regular) super-middleweight title against Rocky Fielding.

Despite going up in weight his class really told against the Englishman when he floored Fielding four times in three rounds with brutal body shots before the referee finally waved things off.

Canelo is likely to drop back down in weight for his next fight, which is scheduled for Cinco de Mayo weekend on May 4th, with the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas already booked.

Now though, according to the Daily Mail, the Mexican is eyeing up a fight at Wembley Stadium against Callum Smith in order to unify the WBA 'regular' and 'super' super middleweight titles.

Smith won the WBA (super) super middleweight title when he shocked George Groves in the final of the World Boxing Super Series in September.

The Liverpudlian had stopped fellow scouser Fielding in just one round for the British super middleweight title back in 2015 and Canelo beat Smith's brother Liam in a world title fight in 2016.

Those around Canelo at Golden Boy Promotions want to turn Alvarez into the most marketable boxer in the world with president Eric Gomez saying, "We are now very open to going to the UK, probably to fight Callum. Wembley would be huge for us."

Oscar de la Hoya added, "Canelo is the biggest name in boxing and we are looking abroad to build him into a global super-star."

Smith wants to fight at Anfield but it's unlikely that he would turn down such a mega fight at Wembley against one of the best pound-for-pound fighters in the world.

At some point Canelo's world tour is also likely to take in Azteca Stadium in Mexico City but before that a date at Wembley for his first fight outside of North America awaits.
