Callum Smith: The Tables Have Turned With Me And George Groves
The Liverpudlian boxing sensation promises world title in 2016.
Callum Smith says he will in the WBC World Super-Middleweight title as he came face-to-face with his final eliminator opponent Hadillah Mohoumadi today ahead of their clash at the Echo Arena in Liverpool on April 2, live on Sky Sports.
Smith finally gets his chance to take the mandatory spot in the WBC after winning three eliminators against top ten opposition in Nikola Sjekloca, Christopher Rebrasse and Rocky Fielding, and now the unbeaten Liverpool star must get over one last hurdle to reach his World title dream
That hurdle comes in the shape of Frenchman Mohoumadi, who returns to England having boxed IBF king James DeGale MBE back in 2012 and puts his European title on the line to boot.
‘Mundo’ would become the first of the Smith brothers to hold a European strap should he beat Mohoumadi; but Smith’s real target is to join Liam as a World king – something he says will happen this year. He said:
“This is the biggest fight of my career by far. It’s great that it’s at home at the Echo Arena. My dream is to fight for a World title; win this fight and I am there, so there can be no slip-ups.”
“He’s a tough fighter and has pedigree so I know I have to be at my best, but I believe with a good camp behind me I will be. Then it’s onto the World title fight and I believe that I can take the title from Jack and hold it for a long time.“
“George Groves didn’t want to know when I was calling him out a while back and now the tables are turned, so it’s good to know that I am up there with the best 168lbs in the world and I believe that I can go on and beat them all and become the best of the lot.”
