Smith-Stepin March 11 in Liverpool
Former super middleweight champion bout Callum Smith (29-1, 21 KOs) vs unbeaten Polish prospect Pavel Stepin (18-0-1, 12 KOs) was officially confirmed. The fight will be the main event of the evening, which will take place on March 11 at the M&S Bank Arena in Liverpool.
For a boxer from Poland, this will be the first professional performance outside of Poland. Stepin, who last boxed in August, is in the top 15 in the WBO, WBA and IBF ratings.
Smith is the official contender for the WBC light heavyweight belt. If he wins against Stepin, then in the summer he will have to fight Artur Beterbev.
