If Canelo Alvarez intends to remain at the super middleweight limit, WBA world champion Callum Smith is more than eager to fight him.
Canelo (50-1-2, 34 KOs) is heading up to the super middleweight limit on December 15, when he challenges WBA "regular" champion Rocky Fielding at Madison Square Garden in New York City.
But Smith, who holds the WBA's "super" title and also knocked out Fielding in single round, is widely regarded as the real WBA champion and the top fighter at the weight after winning the World Boxing Super Series tournament.
Should Canelo win, he's going to potentially remain at the weight - or return back to the middleweight limit of 160, where he owns the WBC, WBA world titles.
Smith and Canelo are both competing on the DAZN streaming service, where their respective promoters have content deals, so matching them against each other should be no problem.
"Yeah of course. If he stays at super middle, then I'll definitely be putting my name in the hat for his next fight at the weight," Smith told Sky Sports.
"He's a special fighter, but I don't believe he's the biggest at super middle, and I think that gives any super-middleweight a slight advantage over him, what they probably lack in ability up against him.
"But if he stays there, then definitely I would love to fight him. Fighting 'Canelo' Alvarez in Vegas is another thing that I would like to tick off. I would be happy to go for the big fights now, and I don't think they come much bigger in my weight division than 'Canelo' Alvarez."
And as far as the December fight, Smith fully sides with Canelo to come away with the win.
"He's got a size advantage on the night, he will be a lot bigger, but I just think in terms of ability, 'Canelo' is a special fighter, and I think he wouldn't have chosen this fight, if he didn't believe he could go in and do a job on him," Smith said.
