Fresh off his 1st round stoppage win over Frenchman Hadillah Mohoumadi two weeks ago to claim the European title, the already British and Commonwealth champion Calum Smith has now been ordered, by the European Boxing Union, to defend his latest belt against their mandatory challenger, non other than his British counterpart George Groves!

Groves stopped Smith’s older brother Paul in a British and Commonwealth title fight in 2011 and Callum would have the chance to gain revenge over his siblings conqueror if he and his team decide to take up the challenge set by the EBU. If not, Smith would have to vacate the title.

“Would you Adam and Eve it. Only been made mandatory for @callumsmith23 with the EBU. Sounds like a great fight to me.” Groves wrote, when he posted the picture below on Instagram of the EBU’s letter confirming, he is mandatory challenger to Smith’s newly acquired strap.
