Smith vs Ryder: Callum Smith discusses potential opponents for a blockbuster battle in 2020
Callum Smith can stay on track for a battle using a domain victory over John Ryder, but that big name tops a hit record for 2020?
The Liverpudlian super-middleweight defends his WBA’superb’ title against mandatory challenger Ryder in the M&S Bank Arena on Saturday night, live on Sky Sports, and Smith can make a gigantic homecoming clash at Anfield, along with a bill-topping bout against one of their biggest names in America.
A super fight with Saul’Canelo’ Alvarez and midsize national clashes with Billy Joe Saunders and Chris Eubank Jr may be possible possibilities, therefore we asked Smith to choose an perfect opponent…
I really like Daniel Jacobs and he comes across nicely every single time I see him. He’s rather a profile in the usa and his close fights with Golovkin and Canelo show you just how good a fighter he is.
Me and Jacobs in New York may be a big struggle, due to his popularity there and it is a fight I entertain. He’s got a great battle so after that we will have a clearer idea of how he looks after going upward from middleweight coming up against Julio Cesar Chavez Jr.
Billy Joe Saunders is a struggle that stands out to me since he’s got a domain which means he has something I’d like.
While he’s won a world title ” I really don’t think as he would have liked, he has made as a consequence, but there’s no doubt he.
As for me, I think he’d be better down at middleweight, but if a struggle could be made it is something I’d happily accept because it’d be a huge unification struggle between two fighters.
The Chris Eubank name usually means he’s a major draw so that it would not be a problem carrying this struggle as I think it would find a great deal of folks talking. As a boxer, I don’t believe Eubank does anything really that specific.
He is tough and he comes to combat, but there’s no excellent feature that I believe could give me any issues. He’s done well for as far as he’s got and when he wins a domain he’s done well, but it’s more his name that stands out instead of capability to combat.
Another name I’d love to check myself is Gennadiy Golovkin, however I really do wonder whether moving into super-middleweight is a choice for him at all.
The past couple of years have been tough because of the degree of opposition he’s been battling, so that I really do believe even though he is a threat for most fighters, he is slowly winding down.
He’s among the world’s greatest middleweights and then I’m sure it would be a major occasion and a chance for me to carry on one of those big names, if he ever considers a move.
Without any doubt, Canelo Alvarez is the struggle I desire more than. I’m probably in a lineup of about 50 fighters that are desperate to take him and it is not tough to understand why.
He’s a enormous name, he is certainly in top three fighters on earth and that he represents a huge evaluation to anyone who faces him.
There has been several fights and that he has not had it all of his own against the likes of Danny Jacobs Gennadiy Golovkin, and Sergey Kovalev.
If he wishes to fight at 12st I believe him and me is the fight to be made.
