Liverpool’s Liam Smith retained his WBO World Super-Welterweight title with a second round stoppage win over Montenegro’s Predrag Radosevic at the Liverpool Echo Arena on Saturday night to take his record to (23-0-1, 13 KOs) – Watch the fight above.

‘Beefy’, making the second defence of his world title in his own city, dropped his challenger with a left hook to the body, followed by a clipping left uppercut to his jaw, halfway through the second round. He failed to get up from the canvas and the referee counted him out.

“I knew the first body shot hurt him so I went for him a little bit. I knew I’d get a reaction as soon as I did it again. It was a good performance and a good stoppage; Joe (his trainer) said it was a proper world champion’s performance.” said Smith.

“Everyone is seeing the names that are getting thrown at me. If I was offered one of those fights I’d take it. I was massively up for this fight as I knew what a win would mean. Retaining a world title in my own city was a special experience.”
