It was great news to hear this week, that Jason ‘2 Smooth’ Booth is to get a dream shot at the world tile, against Canadian IBF super-bantamweight champion Steve Molitor on Friday July 23 on home soil, although promoter Frank Maloney has not yet confirmed the exact venue.
Booth spent two years away from the ring between 2004 and 2006 has he battled alcohol and drug problems, which lead him on a course of personal destruction, but has since turned his life and his boxing career around, now the 32-year-old has been rewarded after an impressive eight-fight winning streak, with this his career defining fight.
“I am happy with what I have achieved in boxing, but thanks to my trainer Tony Harris, manager Jimmy Gill and Frank Maloney I have an opportunity to do better.”

Credit goes to Maloney for securing this surprise crack at a genuine world crown, and Booth is hoping to repay the faith shown in him, by his team and his family who have helped him through the dark days of his life.
