Merseysider has been deep in training camp for past couple months…
Paul Smith arrived in Germany on Tuesday ahead of his WBO super-middleweight world title fight against Arthur Abraham in Kiel on Saturday night.
The 31-year-old has reportedly sold 2,000 tickets to ensure that it will not be an entirely one-sided crowd against him, and the fight itself promises to be a thrilling bout with many expecting the pair to go toe-to-toe.
Smith recently told Sky Sports that he is in great shape ahead of the biggest opportunity of his career, and he believes that he has the gameplan to upset the odds but insists that he will be more than ready to meet his rival in the centre of the ring and produce a classic slugfest.
The Merseysider is currently on a four-fight winning streak since being stopped by George Groves three years ago, and he became the British champion last summer with a sixth-round stoppage of Tony Dodson in Bolton.
However, this experience will be huge for Smith, who shared a photograph on his official Instagram account showing him set to depart for Germany with his brothers, Matthew Macklin and trainer Joe Gallagher.
Promoter Eddie Hearn is also now in Germany and will be hoping for another magical night after seeing Kell Brook crowned the IBF welterweight champion in California last month.
