CALLUM SMITH says he can handle the pressure of being called the ‘hottest young prospect’ in world boxing as he faces Vladine Biosse at the Echo Arena in Liverpool on July 12, live on Sky Sports.

Smith has raced to 11-0 in with nine stoppage wins and claimed the WBC International super-middleweight title in October, and returned from injury to defend in style against Tobias Webb in Cardiff in May.

The 24-year-old has caught the attention of the boxing world in a big way with promoter Eddie Hearn expecting Smith to be rubbing shoulders with the best fighters in the 168lbs division by the end at the beginning of 2016.
