CALLUM SMITH destroyed Liverpool rival Rocky Fielding in one round to win the British super-middleweight title in their home city.

Smith snagged him with a cross and a vicious left uppercut put Fielding down. Badly shaken, Rocky fought on. He tried to fight off the ropes. Callum dropped him a second time with an excellent left hook as Fielding charged forward. Smith hammered him down a third time. Rocky wobbled up but his legs were lost beneath him and he had to be stopped.

Callum won the Lonsdale belt previously held by his eldest brother Paul. In an incredible achievement for the Smith family, all four brothers have won British titles. His brother Liam is a world champion. Callum is now expected to follow in those footsteps.
