Liverpool’s Paul Smith (38-6, 22 22 KOs) is enjoying his role as a Sky pundit, as he explained to Britishboxers last week, but he is also eying a third world title tilt in 2017 in a bid to add more silverware to the Smith family’s collection.

“Smigga” has seen younger brother Liam Smith net the WBO light-middleweight crown, a title he later lost in an away day fight against Saul Alvarez, and Stephen Smith has also had two cracks at world honours.

Smith, though, believes that the story will not end with Liam and has predicted further title wins for each of the four brothers.

“I’m looking for a world title fight next and I’m just waiting for Eddie [Hearn, Smith’s promoter] to get back to me with confirmation of it so fingers crossed,” he said when speaking to the Liverpool Echo about a potential showdown with WBA 168lb holder Tyron Zeuge.

He added: “Liam pushed it over the line and won the world title [beating John Thompson in 2015]. Callum will do it, Stephen will get there and I will as well. There is still a lot to be written for this family yet. I have been in there with Callum and the way he punches and how he punches is frightening. He’s a quality fighter, ask anyone who has been in the ring with him—sparring or fighting.”

Smith recently told Britishboxers that he hopes to be out again in February, so if Hearn can nail a shot against Zeuge the 34-year-old could find himself in world title action in his first outing in what he said could be his final year in the sport.
