Eddie Hearn Responds To Canelo vs Smith Reports

Eddie Hearn Responds To Canelo vs Smith Reports

There’s been a lot of speculation in recent days surrounding a possible fight between boxing super star Canelo Alvarez and out of the blew, now all of a sudden — Liverpool’s world super-middleweight champion Callum Smith.

To further add to the out of the blew nature of the news even Wembley stadium was mentioned for the fight.

It was unclear how this rumor came about but it doesn’t appear to have any legs to it after all.

Speaking to IFL TV promoter of Danny Jacobs and Callum Smith, Eddie Hearn said:

“No I don’t think at Wembley. I don’t know where that’s come from, I think Golden Boy might have said something.

On the prospects of Smith actually taking on Canelo next up, Hearn didn’t think so:

“Probably not. That’s my gut feeling. I think he’s going to fight May 4th in Las Vegas and I think it will be against Danny Jacobs.”

It would appear it’s either Golovkin or Jacobs next up for Canelo at this point.
