PAUL SMITH will rest until the end of the year before making a decision on his future after three consecutive career defeats to Arthur Abraham twice and Andre Ward.

The Liverpudlian was outpointed by WBO super-middleweight world champion Abraham in September of last year and more recently in February.

In his most recent outing, the former British champion was stopped in nine rounds last month by the unbeaten Andre Ward, in the American’s first fight in 19 months, and after those back-to-back reverses, Smith is not rushing any decisions.
