Paul Smith: If I stick to my gameplan I will dethrone Arthur Abraham

Paul Smith is confident of scoring one of the upsets of the year

PAUL SMITH believes he has the tools to take the WBO super-middleweight title from Arthur Abraham when the pair clash for the crown in Kiel, Germany tomorrow night live on Sky Sports.

The Liverpool star tipped the scales at 11st 13 ½ lbs ahead of his first world title shot with Abraham weighing 12st, and Smith wants to add his names to the British and all-time greats that have landed the WBO crown.

“I am fighting for the same belt that Joe Calzaghe and Steve Collins had, Chris Eubank had it and Eubank vs. Benn was for this title, Sugar Ray Leonard fought for this belt,” said Smith. “Now I am going to fight for it in a fight that I can win and I know that if I get this game plan right that I am going to win.
