Stephen Smith Believes All Four Brothers Can Win World Titles

By Chris McKenna, courtesy of The Daily Star

STEPHEN SMITH believes his family can become history makers and be the first to hold four world titles.

That is despite his brother Liam losing his WBO light-middleweight crown in September.

The Liverpool super-featherweight challenges WBA champion Jason Sosa here in Monte Carlo tomorrow night.

Smith, 31, believes he will have his hand raised and then his brothers Liam, Paul and Callum will follow suit in the next 12 months.

The most any family has held is three - the Kameda brothers of Koki, Daiki and Tomoki from Japan.

And Smith said: “I will win mine against Sosa, Callum will get his chance against the winner of James DeGale and Badou Jack at super-middleweight.

“I’m confident Liam will step back into that level. Then we are waiting on Paul getting an opportunity too at super-middleweight.

“There is no reason why we can’t do it, it would be an unbelievable achievement.”

Smith’s fight is part of a £5m spectacular on the French Riviera this weekend that is promoted by Matchroom but funded by the SBM group that run major events in Monaco.

Jamie McDonnell defends his WBA bantamweight title against Liborio Solis while Cuban heavyweight Luis Ortiz takes on American Malik Scott with super-middleweight Martin Murray also in action.

Promoter Eddie Hearn believes this is the first step of his company going global in boxing after being invited to stage a show here and he now hopes to go to America next spring.

Middle Eastern powerhouses Dubai and Oman are also interested in Hearn taking his shows there while China is also interested.

This all comes after Hearn’s rival Frank Warren brought boxing to India this year with Vijender Singh.

Olympic champion Nicola Adams has been left out of the GB Boxing team for the European women’s boxing championships as she considers turning professional.

I can't see Paul picking one up. His best days are well behind him. The fact is that when he was probably as his best, that was around the time the division had Kessler, Ward, Froch etc. etc. and he…
