SWIFTY ON PEDRAZA FIGHT: “I’M IN A REALLY GOOD PLACE MENTALLY AND I COULDNT BE FEELING BETTER GOING INTO IT.”

Stephen ‘Swift’ Smith has waited a long time to eventually secure his world title shot. The Liverpool super-featherweight has remained unbeaten for four and half years and 11 fights, since his sole defeat to Barry’s Lee Selby at featherweight in 2011.

Since stepping up a division after that loss, Smith (23-1, 13KOs) from Liverpool and a sibling of the four fighting Smith brothers has won the British title (two weight champion) and then took the WBC silver super-featherweight title in May 2014, and secured himself a world title fight. The long wait for his big chance at world glory takes place this Saturday night against IBF junior lightweight title holder, the talented switch hitting Puerto Rican Jose ‘Sniper’ Pedraza at the Foxwoods Resort in Connecticut, USA.

The two fighters came face to face yesterday at the press conference in New York, where both spoke with confidence and pose that added an extra buzz to an already intriguing fight.
