Callum Smith hoped to defend WBA belt at home of Liverpool Football Club
With profound foresight Liverpool Football Club secured a boxing license shortly before Callum Smith ground George Groves into a pile of dust in a faraway desert. Smith had anticipated to make the first defense of his WBA ‘super’ title at Anfield, home of his beloved Liverpool Football Club. Though these ambitious plans for the Merseysider seem to have been spoiled by the cost of hiring the 54,000 seated stadium, and the unavailability of big-name opponents.
Other options will be deliberated with his promoter Eddie Hearn and the 28-year-old super-middleweight will target newly crowned IBF champion Caleb Plant, or WBO title holder Ramirez.
