Quite a good chance. There is the obvious size difference, which is one advantage for Smith, but he is also a very good boxer with his amateur pedigree. He would be a huge risk, which is why I don’t see the fight happening any time soon unfortunately.

Gary Logan (trainer)
He is Canelo’s ultimate challenge at this point. Smith’s flying and he’s big and dangerous. I’m going with Canelo because, aside from his fight against Floyd Mayweather, he’s answered every question put before him in his career. Smith is still to be tested but I like him.
