IN the latest edition of Boxing News magazine we speak exclusive to WBO super-welterweight champion, Liam Smith, Canelo Alvarez’s next opponent:

Does the fact you worked so closely with Amir Khan mean you have already done a lot of homework on Canelo?

I couldn’t wait to see that fight, and the outcome of that fight did not deter me in any way. Watching what Amir was doing early on, and how easy he was making it look, has given me massive confidence. I sparred Amir and we had very, very good spars. The way he went in and handled him showed me there’s no way I won’t be able to go in and handle him. I’m going there to win, believe me.
