Ready for some big time boxing? The Canelo vs Smith live stream is about to deliver a title vs title matchup where both Canelo Alvarez and Callum Smith's titles (and then some) is on the line.

Canelo Alvarez (53-1-2, with 36 KOs) enters as an established favorite, with his only loss coming via decision against Floyd Mayweather Jr.. Alvarez enters with his WBA world super middleweight title and The Ring magazine title, though he'd dropped the latter due to inactivity (and won it back by beating Gennadiy Golovkin.

At 27-0 with 19 KOs Callum Smith is seen as no easy win for Alvarez. His 2018 victory over George Groves gave him the super world super middleweight and The Ring magazine titles, but his past opponents were not at Alvarez's level.

Draft Kings has the advantage for Alvarez as the -670 favorite to Smith's +400 underdog.
