IF Callum Smith can defeat Juergen Braehmer on Saturday (February 24) in Nuremberg, he will be in line to fight WBA super-middleweight champion George Groves in the final of the World Boxing Super Series.

Focused on his up coming contest, Smith has dwelt little on Groves and did not attend yesterday’s fight with Chris Eubank Jr at the Manchester Arena.

On Groves, Smith commented, “We’d have to sit down with Joe [Gallagher, his trainer] and watch a lot more of him. There’s watching someone as a boxing fan but when you’re potentially fighting them you watch them a little bit different. He’s good, he’s dangerous, he’s got a good jab. He’s very heavy handed, he’s got good movement.”
