Canelo Alvarez's reported fight against Callum Smith next month could be aired on DAZN despite the Mexican's split from the streaming platform last week.  

Reports emerged on Wednesday that the Mexican has agreed to fight Brit Smith in a blockbuster super-middleweight clash in December, with the AT&T stadium in Texas touted as a potential venue. 

Now, ESPN are reporting that despite Canelo splitting from DAZN and becoming a free agent last week after two bouts in 2020 did not materialise as part of his stunning £278m 10-fight contract, the fight could still be broadcasted on DAZN in the US.
