“What is needed in front of Beterbiev.” Callum Smith appreciated Stepin


As it was officially announced the day before, on March 11 in Liverpool (England), the former world super middleweight champion, and now the official contender for the WBC light heavyweight title (up to 79.4 kg), Briton Callum Smith (29-1, 21 KOs) will fight against unbeaten Polish colleague Pavel Stepin (18-0-1, 12 KOs).

For Callum, the upcoming fight can be called intermediate, but at the same time, its significance can hardly be overestimated, because only if he wins, the Briton will retain his contender status, which is guaranteed by the fight against the unified world champion Artur Beterbiev (19-0, 19 KOs).

“Pavel Stepin is just what I need before the fight against Artur Beterbiev,” the Briton believes. – He has not yet tasted the taste of defeat and is in the top 15 according to the three organizations. This is definitely not a passing fight, and I know that I cannot afford even the slightest mistake. Given the rewards I’ll receive if I win, March 11th will see the best version of me.”

The Beterbiev-Smith fight is expected to take place in the summer.
