Liverpool’s Paul Smith 35-3 (20) announced on Ringside earlier this evening that his challenge for Arthur Abraham’s WBO Super-Middleweight title is almost signed, sealed and delivered.

Smith, 31, faces a major step-up in class when he takes on the two-weight world champion on Sept. 27, in Germany, at a venue to be confirmed. Smith insists he is full of respect for Abraham 40-4 (28) but is going to grasp the opportunity with both hands.

“I’m going to be training behind the scenes like a madman. I honestly think he’s ripe for the picking. I’m not underestimating him. He’s been through the mill and had a lot of hard fights,” said the former British 168lb champion.

And Smith referred to a fellow Brit’s win over Abraham as the best way to beat him.

“Carl [Froch] showed the perfect way to beat him [in 2010]. I’ve said time and time again he’s a great champion and I’m gonna give everything I’ve got. My style’s made for him but his style’s made for me.”

How on earth does Paul Smith get a title shot ?

It's crazy that Paul Smith is actually fighting for a world title before Chunky Degale who Degale destroyed and toyed with Smith nearly 4 years ago. Congrats on the shot and do well for yourself on the night.

The sauerlands are at it again. They make their champs fight easy opponents. Smith is not even a European level fighter. British level at best. He was stopped by groves and degale. Abraham punches harder than both of them. Andre ward said abraham has bricks in both hands. Abraham stops him inside...

WBO 'European' world title. Abraham is shot but still should have too much for Smith

I expect Abraham to win this. I like Abraham, he's not the most talented guy but he's tough as hell and has a big right. Would like to see Mikkel Kessler get a shot at Arthur Abraham and his belt sometime in the future if Abraham gets by Smith. That could be a good scrap.
