On December 19, 2020 elite 51-1-2 boxing phenom, Canelo Alvarez, will challenge the 27-0 WBA and Ring Magazine super-middleweight champion, Callum Smith, for both belts at the Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas. This championship bout can be seen live on DAZN.

Oddsmakers like them some Canelo here, and why shouldn’t they? Canelo is at the top the sport, with his lone loss coming to the great and undefeated great Floyd Mayweather. A straight up bet on Alvarez is available for a steep cost of -650, with Callum clocking in at a hefty underdog tick of +475. A $100 bet on Canelo would only payout $115.38, and a $100 wager on Smith would dish out a much more lucrative $575.

With 55 of 80 wins between the two ending inside the distance for a combined finishing rate of 68.75%, the odds reflect somebody will be getting finished in this title fight. The prop bet ‘Fight doesn’t go to decision’ holds a favored line of -165, with a +125 comeback on the ‘Fight goes to decision’ option.

Naturally, Canelo is the boxer deemed most likely to get the finish. The exotic bet ‘Alvarez wins inside distance’ is sitting with a slight minus line of -110, with ‘Not Alvarez inside distance’ trending at -130. Going back the other way, the bet ‘Smith wins inside distance’ owns a moneyline deep into underdog territory at +535, with ‘Not Smith inside distance’ wildly favored at -1005.
