Smith Targets WBC Bout

Callum Smith has confirmed he wants to win the WBC super-middleweight title – just days after becoming a world champion. The Liverpudlian won the WBA ‘Super’ crown on Friday night as he produced a devastating stoppage to overcome George Groves.

Smith recorded a seventh-round knockout in Jeddah to win the title and also the final of the World Boxing Super Series.

The 28-year-old told Sky Sports: “I want to achieve as much as I can and unification is probably the next goal and next step.

“After beating George Groves, I think I am considered the number one, but they’ve all got arguments to say they are so I just want to clear that up and cement my spot at number one.


“The only way I can do is beat some of the other champions and there’s a bit of unfinished business with the WBC with me.

“I felt I should’ve fought for that belt a long time ago so I want that first. I have the WBC Diamond so I am next in line and it should make it easier to make and I am not picking an easy one.”
