Smith set to take on Ahsandi Gibbs in California on Saturday night…
Top British prospect Callum Smith is set to make his boxing debut in the US on Saturday night on the undercard of Kell Brook vs Shawn Porter.
The 24-year-old is widely regarded as one of the most exciting talents in boxing on these shores, and he will look to gain vital experience of fighting on a big occasion as he eyes world titles in the future.
While all eyes are on Brook this weekend in his bid to rip the IBF welterweight title away from Porter, Smith will hope to put on an impressive performance across the pond in order to raise his profile further.
Smith will face Ahsandi Gibbs in a six-round super-middleweight encounter, while Olympic gold medallist Luke Campbell will also feature on the undercard along with exciting American heavyweight star Deontay Wilder.
However, things haven’t all gone according to plan thus far for Smith as he explains in the video below, courtesy of iFL TV, but he is undoubtedly looking forward to his first taste of fighting in the US.
