FORMER WBO world super-welterweight champion Liam Smith is looking to return to action in July and continue the momentum that started building with a fifth round stoppage victory over Sam Eggington at the Echo Arena in Liverpool.

With that March win, “Beefy” picked up the WBC Silver title in the process of breezing past Eggington in what was the first fight of his new deal with Matchroom Boxing, as well as headlining on Sky Sports in his hometown.

Now with a July date in mind, he is looking for a similar performance against another highly ranked opponent, as he targets a potential world title fight by the either the end of 2019 or early 2020.
