Rising super-middleweight star Callum Smith last night proved that he is the REAL DEAL with a stunning 1st round demolition of fellow Liverpudlian Rocky Fielding in just 1 round.

Smith had fielding down 3 times in the opener before ref Phil Edwards has seen enough and called a halt to the action. This is an epic rise for Smith who also captured the British title in the process, making him the 4th Smith brother to do so.

25yo Smith is ranked No.1 by WBC and will definately look to get into world title action in the new year.

Smith said” I haven’t been pro for three years yet, its ten days short of three years since I made my debut, so I’m still learning. I am doing everything right at the minute and I do think 2016 is the year I can become a World champion. ”

Smith’s promoter Eddie Hearn told DAILY SPORT Boxing “This boy is a real, real fighter. He has freakish power, is WBC number one, and I believe Callum Smith will win world championships in 2016. We will be pushing at the WBC convention for him to become mandatory challenger to Badou Jack. It is a fight I believe he wins. We have Martin Murray challenging Arthur Abraham, James DeGale MBE is the IBF champion and George Groves coming back which is a fight we have always wanted. These are big times for Callum Smith in the world division.”
