STEPHEN SMITH finally has a date for his world title fight with IBF super-featherweight champion Jose Pedraza.

The Liverpudlian will travel to Foxwoods Resort in Mashantucket, Connecticut on April 16, and he’s ready to seize his opportunity with both hands.

Smith became Pedraza’s mandatory when he destroyed Devis Boschiero in September, though his fight with Jose was only confirmed last week.
