SUPER-MIDDLEWEIGHT king Canelo Alvarez showed his remarkable quality with a ‘fake jab’ uppercut in his win over Callum Smith.

The Mexican took home vacant WBC and the WBA belt after battering the Brit from pillar to post in a 12-round slug-fest in Texas on Saturday.

While Smith left the ring bruised and beaten, Canelo barely had a scratch on him in his dominant victory.

The 30-year-old caught Smith throughout with a string of unstoppable combos, landing jabs and body shots on his hapless opponent.

But one of the most impressive came in round 12 when Canelo pulled off a moment of magic.

He went to hit Smith with a right jab before switching in the a blink of an eye with a left upper-cut.

It caught Smith plush in the face and obviously left him rocked as he stepped away from Canelo.

It was just the cherry on top on a one-sided performance as he plots to become the unified champ.

Alvarez is now a four division world champion and has plans to target the remaining belts with Billy Joe Saunders holding the WBO and Caleb Plant with the IBF.

The Mexican then threw a stunning left uppercut to bamboozle his opponent

But first he will be made to defend his WBC belt, and has 90 days to do so against No1 contender Avni Yildirim – which could be a homecoming bout.

Canelo’s trainer Eddy Reynoso to Boxing Social: “We’re planning on doing it in 90 days out in Mexico; then we’ll fight again.

“We want Billy Joe Saunders or Caleb Plant for a unification of the 168 pounds.”
