    Default Callum Smith v John Ryder

    Callum Smith to defend title against John Ryder

    Callum Smith will defend his WBA world super-middleweight title against fellow Briton John Ryder in Liverpool on 23 November.

    Unbeaten Smith, 29, knocked out George Groves last September to claim the belt.

    Ryder, 31, is the mandatory challenger after beating the previously undefeated Andrey Sirotkin in October.

    "I can't tell you how excited I am to return to Liverpool as world champion to defend my titles," said Smith, 29.



    "It's always been a dream of mine to bring world championship boxing to the city and hopefully this is the first of a big run of fights here."

    The fight will take place at the M&S Bank Arena.

    Ryder has won 28 and lost four of his 32 professional fights.

    Callum Smith will defend his WBA super-middleweight world title on November 23 at the M&S Bank Arena in Liverpool, it was officially announced on Friday.

    The World Boxing Super Series champion defeated Hassan N’Dam on the undercard of Andy Ruiz Jr vs Anthony Joshua in June, following his title triumph over George Groves last September.

    However, he has not fought in the UK since September 2017 and so is relishing a return to his home city of Liverpool.

    “I can’t tell you how excited I am to return to Liverpool as world champion to defend my titles,” said Smith.

    “It’s always been a dream of mine to bring world championship boxing to the city and hopefully this is the first of a big run of fights here.

    “My last three fights have been on the road in Germany, Saudi Arabia and New York and whilst they have been incredible experiences, there is nothing quite like a big fight night in Liverpool. It’s also pleasing that I get to be involved in a domestic fight against a tough opponent in John Ryder.”



    “I’m buzzing to be fighting for the full world title,” said Ryder.

    “I’ve worked hard to get myself into the mandatory position and keep myself there. I feel like I’m in the form of my life and this opportunity has come at the perfect time. Callum Smith is a great opponent and a great champion but I feel unbeatable at the moment.

    “People will see me beating Callum as a big upset but I don’t see it like that. I believe that I’ve got the ability to win and that’s what I plan to do. This is the chance that I’ve taken. I’m heading into the lion’s den to get the win and shatter his Anfield dreams.”

    Fodder but it is a nice fight for him in his hometown.

    Ryder is tough and there is momentum behind him. Unfortunately, Smith is in the above class
