Smith, super middleweight champion of the World Boxing Association (WBA).
“This December 19 will be my return to the ring to face Callum Smith,” wrote “Canelo” on his Twitter account. The combat site is still unknown.

It was the fourth belt he obtained in different divisions. Álvarez has also been a world champion in super welterweight, middleweight and super middleweight.
