WBA super middleweight world champion Callum Smith is looking for the biggest fight possible in the fall.
Smith was a frontrunner to face Mexican superstar Saul "Canelo" Alvarez on the Cinco De Mayo date of May 2nd in Las Vegas.
But Smith rejected an initial offer for the fight, explaining that it was low. Canelo and his handlers eventually went with WBO super middleweight champion Billy Joe Saunders.
Smith was last seen in action back in November, when he won a tougher than expected twelve round unanimous decision over mandatory challenger John Ryder.
Smith's trainer, Joe Gallagher, would like to see his man in action in the very near future in a stay-busy fight, and then wants him to face a major opponent in the fall - and they don't care who that name would be.
Gallagher says they are willing to fight current middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin, top rated super middleweight and former champion Daniel Jacobs, top contender Chris Eubank Jr, former champion Sergey Kovalev at the light heavyweight limit of 175, or even a rematch with Ryder.
But what Smith wants most is a unification with either WBC champion David Benavidez or IBF champion Caleb Plant.
"Callum has just had his mandatory, a tough mandatory with John Ryder," said Gallagher. "I would like to get Callum Smith out, a defence of his title, and then he can fight whoever is available in September.
"Whether it's GGG, Jacobs, John Ryder 2, Eubank, Kovalev, anyone. Callum has made it quite clear that he's got involved in boxing to win titles and prove he's the best. He's got the ranking, but he would love to unify the division, so that starts with a Plant or a Benavidez."
