share on:

Freddie Roach believes Saul “Canelo” Alvarez could lose to undefeated Liam “Beefy” Smith come September 17.

Roach has been training the 27-year-old at his Wildcard Gym and he was impressed with the fighter.

Roach who is now a fan of the WBO middleweight champion thinks he has what it takes to give Canelo, 26, his second loss of his pro career.

“Liam Smith is a solid guy,” said Roach to Fighthub.com. “He can win that fight [against Canelo]. Liam Smith is a tough, tough guy. Don’t underestimate him. He’s solid. He’s a tough guy.”

When asked what the Brit needs to do for him to beat Canelo on September 17, Roach said, “Go to war and be able to take a punch. So far, he’s always done that. He’s very tough and good chin. It’s a great fight. I like that fight. I’ll pay for that one,” said Roach.
