Boxing World Reacts To Canelo Wembley Stadium Fight Talks

Canelo Alvarez fresh off the back of his win on Saturday night against Rocky Fielding at Madison Square Garden has been linked with a huge potential next fight in the UK.

The Mexican and global boxing star has primarily campaigned in Mexico and the United States throughout his boxing career as a professional but with his brand and star now a world one, an iconic 90,000 sellout at Wembley soccer stadium is something that’s surely tempting him in the back of his mind.

A third fight with Gennady Golovkin or a unification with Danny Jacobs were the leading contenders for his next fight but as is often the case in the fight business, things have changed at the drop of a hat.

Super-middleweight champion Callum Smith, a fellow Liverpool man like Canelo’s opponent on Saturday night Rocky Fielding — has now being linked with the next shot at Canelo.

The news has taken the boxing community by storm:

Further reports suggest that Canelo’s handlers are seriously considering the fight for the Mexican boxer so watch this space over the coming weeks.
