Paul Smith (38-6, 22 KO’s) made his third appearance within the space of four months as he aims to stay sharp ahead of a more meaningful challenge. The two time Super middleweight world title challenger—who has endured some prolonged periods out of the ring during his career—stopped Hungary’s Daniel Regi in five one-sided rounds.

Remi was defensively minded from the opening bell and Smith took time to find his mark, but his right hand began to pay dividends by the midway point.

Smith dropped Regi in the third round, and three times in the fourth. Remi tried to carry on but a body shot put him down early in the fifth and Smith kept punching until the fight was waved off.

Liverpool’s Smith, who weighed in at 174lbs, will now wait for Eddie Hearn to provide him with an attractive next step. “I feel if I don’t win a world title, I’ll be the only member of my family not to do so,” Smith told Sky Sports afterwards. “I’m happy to get rounds and these are the nights you want to be involved in.”
