Canelo vs Liam Smith

Confirmed: Canelo vs Liam Smith Will Take Place September 17th

Published On June 24, 2016 | By Niall Doran | Boxing News, Boxing Views and Opinion

Canelo vs Liam Smith will take place for the Liverpool man’s WBO super-welterweight title.

A lot of people were hoping that Canelo’s next opponent would be Gennady Golovkin next up but alas, it wasn’t meant to be, instead with a promise of the fight now taking place in late 2017 instead.

However, that is quite some time away from where we are at the moment, so now we as boxing fans and as an industry focus on what is on the immediate horizon and what to be fair, is an excellent opportunity for Liverpool’s Liam Smith.

Despite Liam being the champion in this one, Canelo will clearly be the bigger star, and the news was officially confirmed a short time ago with the thoughts of Smith and others also announced:

It is suspected that the fight will take place at the MGM Grand Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA.
