The highly touted 168lbs contender has been added to what is shaping up to be a stacked stadium fight in Goodison Park at the end of the month in Liverpool.
The Super-Middleweight sensation landed the mandatory position in the WBC with a thrilling first round KO win over European champion Hadillah Mohoumadi at the Echo Arena on April 2th.
Smith was ringside in Washington DC at the end of April working as a pundit for Sky Sports as WBC champion Badou Jack held onto his title with a split draw against Lucian Bute, with IBF king James DeGale MBE beating Rogelio Medina in his second defence of his title.
“As soon as this event was announced it was one that I was desperate to be a part of it – everyone in Liverpool is buzzing about May 29th. I’m always in the gym and I don’t want to sit around and do nothing, I should be active at my age and at this stage of my career, and I want to keep winning and keep learning so I ready for that World title fight when it comes.”
“It was good being in Washington and having the best seat in the house to watch Jack and DeGale. It was good to be around them and it made me feel that I really belong at the top level.”
“I was getting my name out there in the US and I think that my profile is on the rise at the right time. I’ve never called anybody out but I’ve also never turned anybody down. I believe that I can become the best Super-Middleweight in the world and I am happy to fight whoever I have to in order to prove it.”
