| 15.09.2016

On Saturday night, the AT&T Stadium in Arlington will play host to one of the most hotly anticipated bouts of the year, as Saul Alvarez steps down a weight to fight WBO light-middleweight title holder Liam Smith.

Floyd Mayweather Snr recently compared the bout to being like ‘a 12th grader taking on a kindergarten kid’, but how is the rest of social media calling this one?

Here’s Alvarez preparing for the weekend…

 

 

 

Meanwhile, the 6/1 outsider looks in equally impressive shape…

He might match the 1/10 favourite in style, but can he do so in power, too?

Someone’s travelling to the fight in style…

Beefy certainly has his supporters…

One down, two to go Andy!

Bold words, Norman…

Check out what Sugar Ray Leonard has to say on the fight…

Granted, he’s no Gennady Golovkin, but Beefy won’t make things easy for Alvarez!

Brook was 5/1 last weekend, whereas Smith is 6s to win in Dallas…

It’s 8/1 for Smith to KO Alvarez, while 1/2 says that’s the Mexican’s method of victory…

And finally, a word from the two fighters ahead of the bout…

Which way are you calling the fight? Let us know in the comments section below!
