Liam Smith

The former WBO World Super-Welterweight Champion Liam Smith has now landed on the big stage.

'Beefy' made his pro debut on October 10 2008, spookily the same day he fought for his first World Title.

Just one draw against Terry Carruthers over four rounds back in September 2010 remains the only blemish on his otherwise perfect record.

A unanimous decision victory over Steve O'Meara saw Liam pick up his first professional title, the vacant Commonwealth belt at London's Excel Arena on the George Groves v Glen Johnson undercard in December 2012.

Just two fights later, another twelve round victory over 'The Eagle' Erick Ochieng saw Smith pick up the much coveted British Title where he would go on to successfully defend against Mark Thompson and Jason Welborn.

Impressive TKO wins over Zoltan Sera, Robert Talarek and David Ezequiel Romero allowed the 27 year old to rise up the World Rankings and finally land a shot at gold.

World Champion

On Saturday 10 October, Liam sensationally won the WBO World Junior Middleweight World Title, knocking John Thompson out in the seventh round to become the first Smith brother to collect World honours.

First Defence

Beefy successfully defended his World Title on December 19's big show in Manchester against stablemate Jimmy Kelly Jr with a seventh round stoppage.

The Merseyside Maverick followed up with a second round demolition over Predrag Radosevic at the Echo Arena in Liverpool on Saturday 4 June. Beefy landed one of his trademark left hook body shots which dropped the challenger who then failed to make the count. Potential huge fights await Smith in the autumn.

Canelo fight in the U.S!

On Friday 24 June the social media boxing world went nuts it was announced Liam Smith would defend his WBO World Super-Welterweight Title against Canelo Alvarez on Saturday 17 September!

Unfortunately the Mexican's power was too much for the brave Smith, who suffered a knockout defeat after nine exciting rounds in Dallas.
