UNBEATEN super-middleweight contender Callum Smith hopes to vindicate his decision to withdraw from a world title fight by winning the inaugural World Boxing Super Series tournament.

The Liverpudlian was set to box Anthony Dirrell in September for the vacant WBC title, but attempts from the American to change the date and venue left him frustrated.

Instead, he will box in the knockout-style tournament with his first contest being against unbeaten Erik Skoglund in September.
