FORMER WBO super-welterweight champion Liam Smith has been forced out of a challenge for the world title he used to hold. He was due to fight the new champion Sadam Ali in Verona in the United States on May 12.

Smith has had an allergic reaction and after falling ill finds himself unable to compete.

He wants to reschedule the fight but reports indicate that Golden Boy, Ali’s promoter, is looking at alternative opponents.
