Unbeaten light-middleweight Liam Smith gets a first world title shot when he faces 17-1 American John Thompson for the vacant WBO crown on Saturday night at the Manchester Arena Live on BoxNation.

The Liverpool man has earned his shot after building a convincing run of 20-0-1 and has promised to bring the world title back to Liverpool. The 27-year-old has won his last five fights by knockout, and will be looking to go six from six when he faces New Jersey’s Thompson. 

In his last fight, Smith claimed the vacant WBO Intercontinental title against David Ezequiel Romero to set himself up for the biggest fight of his career. Watch full interview with Liam Smith Below. Watch the fight on BoxNation Here.
