NIGEL BENN is adamant Callum Smith will become Britain’s next ‘superstar’ and would pick him over Gennady Golovkin and Sergey Kovalev.

A former two-weight world champion, Benn had a memorable run as the WBC super-middleweight king from 1992 to 1996.

Smith walked through Hadillah Mohoumadi inside a round at the weekend to earn a shot at the same WBC title, though Benn is not sure the Liverpudlian can gather the same sort of attention he enjoyed.
