Preview

For his next challenge, reigning IBF, WBC and WBO light heavyweight title holder Artur Beterbiev faces Callum Smith tonight. After getting though Anthony Yarde in a 2023 ‘Fight of the Year’ candidate this past January, Beterbiev was scheduled to defend against Smith in July. However, that fight would get postponed after Beterbiev required emergency surgery due to an infection in his jaw. 

Now healthy, the 38-year-old hopes to get his twentieth consecutive win, which could lead to a potential fight with fellow champion, Dmitry Bivol. Up first, though, is Smith, and he has set quite a goal for himself ahead of the Beterbiev fight.

“He’s a very good fighter, his record speaks for itself, but he’s not invincible, he can be hit and he can be hurt, we’ve seen that,” said Smith to Nick Parkinson of ESPN. “I believe he can be hurt and he can be put over. I know I can put him over and we have worked on that, I believe I can finish Artur Beterbiev.

“I don’t watch him thinking I can’t beat him. I believe the best version of me can beat him and I believe the timing is right on my side. We don’t know if he’s aging yet, but I just know that I’m in with a big puncher and because of that he keeps me more switched on.”

Smith has not fought since a fourth-round KO of Mathieu Bauderlique. Prior to that, ‘Mundo’ returned to the win column with a second-round KO against Lenin Castillo
