It goes without saying that Canelo comes into the fight as a significant favourite with the bookmakers listing him at a best price of 2/9 with several top books floating him around ⅙ to win the contest by any method. 

Callum Smith, on the other hand, looks like he has the odds stacked against him in both the literal and figurative sense. You can back him at a best price of around 17/4 and it will be interesting to see how the odds fluctuate prior to the fight. There is every chance that he could drift up higher but one reckons that the big money could all be coming in on Canelo. 

The fight looks to be setting up for an exciting finish, as the bookmakers are shortening the price for the fight to not go the distance and right now it’s hovering around a 4/7 margin. You can lock in a 13/8 best price right now on the fight to go the distance and, if Smith is going to pull off the victory, then that could very well be his method. 

The big bet for lots of punters is likely going to be Canelo to win by KO, TKO or DQ and that’s trading at a tasty price of around 10/11. A decision victory for Alvarez would reward at 9/5 while a few books have the UK-based fighter trading at 5/1 for the KO or TKO win and 10/1 for a decision. 

One has to wonder how Canelo is going to react if Smith is able to show that he can trade punches with him in the earlier rounds and let his conditioning shine through in the later rounds. Should things be heading towards a decision and he thinks he may have a chance of being behind, Canelo may open himself up and present a bigger opportunity for Smith. With two belts on the line, you can expect the unexpected here.
