How Twitter reacted to Canelo Alvarez stopping Liam Smith

| 18.09.2016

Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez had the boxing world calling for a showdown with Gennady ‘Triple G’ Golovkin after a brutal display of power against Liam Smith.

Despite a brave showing from England’s defending light middleweight champion, he was unable to cope with the might of Canelo’s punches.

Here’s how Twitter reacted to the bout, which was stopped in the ninth round:

A brutal body shot brought Smith to the canvas

Despite being unbeaten in his 24 fights as a professional, Smith couldn’t match Canelo’s class

While many praised the Brit for his courage, it was clear what the public wanted to see next

The man himself claims GGG has been offered the chance for a bout twice

But it seems Canelo’s own promotion team are protecting him for now

Oscar De La Hoya, Canelo’s promoter, said the GGG fight will happen, just not yet

While the man himself maintained the Smith victory was a team performance
