CALLUM SMITH, who won the WBA super-middleweight world title in September, is expected to make his first defence of the title in May of this year.

It might not be in Liverpool, with his promoter Eddie Hearn suggesting that he could go to the USA for his next fight.

“Talking to Joe [Gallagher, Smith’s manager and trainer] and the team, looking like May for his first defence. Just determining whether that will be in Liverpool or America,” Hearn told Boxing News.
