The Ali Trophy Final in the Super Middleweight edition of the World Boxing Super Series between George Groves and Callum Smith will take place on September 28 at the King Abdullah Sports City in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia.
 
Comosa AG is delighted to announce that the pieces are in place for a spectacular event in Jeddah, the conclusion of a sensational first season in the quest for the Muhammad Ali Trophy.

Saudi Arabia continues its tradition of hosting big sporting events as it hosts the WWE and the Italian Super Cup in spring 2019.

The journey to the final began at the Draft Gala in Monaco in July last year where Groves, the number one seed, and second-seeded Smith, picked their opponents.
 
The final on September 28 will be Groves’ third defence of his WBA Super World title, with all three fights involving British opponents - Jamie Cox, Chris Eubank Jr. and now Callum Smith.

Callum Smith booked his place in the final after defeating Sweden’s Erik Skoglund and Dutchman Nieky Holzken in the quarter-final and semi-final respectively. The WBC Diamond belt holder has his first shot at a World title after being in mandatory positions over the last few years, and like Groves, a unique chance to bring home the Muhammad Ali Trophy, The Greatest Prize in Boxing. The vacant RING super middleweight championship belt will also be on the line.
 
Callum Smith believes he can change the super-middleweight hierarchy in Jeddah.
