Recommended Bet: Over 7.5 Rounds at 8/11 (1.73) with bet365

Saul “Canelo” Alvarez is the red hot betting favourite at just 1/9 with Paddy Power to win against Liam Smith in their big title fight this weekend.

Smith, trading at 7/1 with bet365, is a tremendous talent, but this is a significant step up in grade for the Liverpudlian. Many will see this is a stepping stone for a Canelo Vs GGG superfight, but despite the difference in price here, those staying up to watch can be sure of an absorbing battle.

Alvarez v Smith

Live on BoxNation from Arlington, Texas, Saul Alvarez will return to the junior middleweight division to face WBO 154-pound belt holder Smith. Alvarez will have a large section of the crowd behind him, but expect a good representation from Smith’s native Liverpool, England, as well. This young man is unbeaten in 24 professional bouts and has stopped all eight of his last opponents.

This might not have been the fight most boxing fans wanted to see Canelo fight this Autumn, but Smith is undefeated, puts on exciting fights and can hardly be faulted for jumping on this opportunity to fight the Mexican. Smith will be defending his WBO light-middleweight title, while Álvarez is dropping down a division, having vacated the WBC middleweight belt he successfully defended against Britain’s Amir Khan back in May.

Saul Álvarez is one of the biggest names out there,” Smith said in an interview this week. “and I am going to stop him. When this fight was put on the table, I jumped at the chance. It’s a chance for me to make a name for myself.

It is a big opportunity for Liam Smith, but also a very tall order. He is as tough as they come and his tall frame and long stance could ensure this fight heads into the latter rounds and possibly even go to a decision. Expect Canelo Alvarez to prove too crafty, too classy even, but also expect Smith to come out of this with a great deal of credit. With a little luck, he can grind this out in into the later rounds and make boxing betting seem good value.
