Canelo Alvarez was seven inches shorter than Callum Smith on Saturday night. He had an eight-inch reach disadvantage. He hadn't fought in over a year.

And he had absolutely no problem taking out his opponent.

The heavy favorite cashed with ease, beating Smith by unanimous decision thanks to a heavy dose of uppercuts and constant pressure. Alvarez just continued to move forward throughout the fight, not letting anything Smith threw stop him in his tracks.

Alvarez stated before the fight that he wants to unify all the titles at 168 and beating Smith was a big first step. However his next step could also be a highly anticipated trilogy fight with Gennadiy Golovkin who scored his own victory on Friday.

Boxers, celebrities and athletes took to social media to share their thoughts on Alvarez's latest accomplishment.
