The final major boxing event is set for tonight (December 19th) at The Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas. In the main event, Mexican superstar Canelo Alvarez (53-1-2, 36 KOs) looks to become a unified super-middleweight champion Callum Smith (27-0, 19 KOs), who stands 6’3”, a full six inches taller than Alvarez.
Smith’s WBA title and the vacant WBC belt are at stake, so the winner would be halfway towards undisputed champion status. The Englishman is effectively fighting on the road given San Antonio’s close proximity to Mexico, not to mention the large Mexican population within San Antonio. He’s the underdog here but he’s in his prime and a formidable opponent for Canelo, who’s competing for the first time since knocking out Sergey Kovalev at light heavyweight.
If you’re wondering when this main event starts, well DAZN says 11 PM ET, or three hours after the five-fight broadcast starts.
Programming alert for #CaneloSmith.
Officials tell me ring walks will take place at:
8 pm PT
10 pm CT
11 pm ET
UK fans looking to support the British fighter are looking at a bed, boxing and breakfast special at 4 a.m.
First fight on DAZN’s feed starts at 5 pm PT.

Keep in mind this is all dependent on whether the undercard runs long, and it really should not given there are no 12-rounders scheduled apart from the main event.
You can watch this card on DAZN anywhere around the world (except Mexico, where it’s on TV Azteca) or through traditional cable/satellite pay-per-view in the United Staes. It costs $69.99 to order as a PPV, and with it you’d get a four-month DAZN subscription along with your purchase.
