The show started off with a bang as pyrotechnic displays were incorporated into the fighters’ ring walks in celebration of the festive Mexican holiday. At the start of the fight, both Canelo Alvarez (48-1-1, 34 KOs) of Guadalajara, Jalisco, Mexico and Liam “Beefy” Smith (23-1-1, 13 KOs) of Liverpool, England came out aggressively at each other in an exciting battle of power and wits. As the fight progressed, both fighters went back and forth exchanging combinations of face and body shots. In the beginning of the seventh round, Canelo dropped Smith with an overhand right to the head first time in the Brit’s career. In the eighth round, Liam was knocked down again by a body shot and finally, at 2:28 in the ninth round, Canelo secured himself another world title as he landed straight power hit to Smith’s liver, immobilizing the fighter.
