  • Mundo also looks ahead to a possible Anfield main event next year and who that could be against! 

Team Morson’s Callum Smith returns to the ring this weekend to fight in his hometown of Liverpool for the first time in two years. The Super-Middleweight will be defending his WBA World, WBC Diamond and Ring Magazine world titles against mandatory challenger, John Ryder. 30-year-old, Ryder is currently on a four-fight win streak, with all coming as a result of KO or TKO and Callum recognises the toughness his opponent brings:

“He’s on a good run of form. I’ve got to expect an even better version of him than we’ve seen before but I’m on good form myself, the form of my career. I’ve become the best super-middleweight in the world for a reason. There’s potentially huge fights out there for me but they all disappear if I slip up against John Ryder. He’s got my full attention, he’s the man I’m focused on. I’m not looking past him at all, I believe I’ll put in a big performance and unfortunately for John, I think he’ll come across the best version of me”


Joe Gallagher, who has coached Callum since his debut back in 2012, has seen the youngest Smith brother develop into one of the sport’s elite and he believes the best is still yet to come:

“You’re dealing with Callum Smith, who in my opinion is one of the best pound for pound fighters in the world. He’s punching very hard and hasn’t produced the best performance he can do in a ring yet, which is very scary for opponents out there. I know what I see every day in the gym”

Since ‘Mundo’ last fought in Liverpool, he has won the Ali Trophy, multiple world titles he’s set to defend and also boxed at the prestigious Madison Square Garden. Despite all the accolades and international highlights, nothing is quite like home for Callum Smith. 

“I enjoyed all the away trips, they’re all good in their own way but fighting in Liverpool is special, it always has been. From early on in my career I made a promise to bring a world title back to the city, this is it now, this is me bringing a world title back in front of the home fans”


Gallagher reiterated the importance of an impressive win in terms of opening the doors for long-awaited super-fights in the stacked Super-Middleweight division:

“He’s got to take care of business, there’s huge pressure on Callum. The whole city of Liverpool needs him to win here, because if he does, they’ll get their Anfield night. He’s got to take care of business, there’s huge pressure on Callum. The whole city of Liverpool needs him to win here, because if he does, they’ll get their Anfield night”


Speaking of a potential Anfield main event, Smith highlighted who he believes would be standing across the ring from him, if a match could be made at the iconic football ground:

“I’d be a fool to look past John Ryder, but obviously Eddie has massive names for the Anfield date. If it does come off, I think Billy Joe Saunders would be easiest to make with us both being at Matchroom. I think there’s others Eddie would prefer to make, whether he can and deliver them is a different matter. Over the next few months we’ll see what they come up with”


Regardless of the exciting future that may await Callum he is completely focused on the task at hand this weekend:

“From my debut till now, I’ve always had the outlook that if the best version of me turns up, I’ll beat anyone in the world. This fight’s no different, I’m going to do what I’m good at and let John Ryder adapt to my style. As long as I perform and do what I’m good at, then I should be good enough to get the win and look good doing it”


Saturday night promises to be a special night for the fighting city of Liverpool and we at Morson wish Callum the best of luck in the defence of his world titles.
