CALLUM SMITH plans to box before the end of the season as he seeks out more durable opponents ahead of a WBC world super-middleweight title shot.

The unbeaten Liverpudlian became mandatory challenger to the title Badou Jack defends against Lucian Bute this weekend when he demolished Hadillah Mohoumadi inside a round on April 2.

The plan is for the Jack-Bute winner to face the victor of James DeGale’s IBF title defence against Rogelio Medina in September, meaning Smith may need to wait for his chance.
