So, what's the actual fight time for the main event? Look for Canelo vs Smith to start between 10:30 PM and 11:00 PM ET.
Online streaming via Golden Boy will feature Hall of Fame commentators Colonel Bob Sheridan while the HBO Boxing PPV distribution will showcase commentators Jim Lampley, Roy Jones and Max Kellerman.
Bonus coverage, consisting of eight, off-TV preliminary fights, featuring GBP prospects Eddie Gomez, Sadam Ali, Hector Tanajara Jr. and Joshua Franco, can be viewed by visiting RingTvLive.com, starting at 3:20PM ET/12:20PM PT.
Tonight will serve as Canelo's sixth PPV headliner. However, at a cost of $65, how many fans will purchase the event given Smith is an unknown quantity in the States?
When we last saw the Mexican star in the ring, Canelo orchestrated a spectacular one-punch, sixth-round knockout win over Amir Khan in early May in a bout that drew "around" 600,000 pay-per-view buys. And Alvarez's middleweight title victory against Miguel Cotto in November generated 900,000 buys.
"The future is that the sky's the limit for Canelo," Golden Boy Promotions Founder Oscar De La Hoya told ESPN last summer.
"He is on his way to breaking Floyd's pay-per-view records. We are extremely proud of the work we have done at Golden Boy Promotions, but when you have a special product like Canelo, the sky is the limit. "
"And Amir did his part. A lot of people were saying it wouldn't be a good fight, but Amir and Canelo both came to fight, both gave everything they had, and it was a good, exciting fight, and people got their money's worth."
