  • Will Stephen Smith win his IBF title fight?

    Liverpool's Stephen Smith is getting a shot at the IBF World super featherweight title. Jose Pedraza (21-0) is the defending champion. The contest on 16th April, 2016 takes place at Foxwoods Resort, Mashantucket, Connecticut.

    Stephen Smith: ďIíve waited a long time for this opportunity, but the timing couldnít be better,Ē said Smith. ďIím excited to get the opportunity to win the world title live on Sky Sports in the UK and on SHOWTIME in America. Pedraza is a quality fighter but I know I will do whatever is needed to become world champion on April 16 and I canít wait.Ē

    How do you think Stephen will get on and will he be the second Smith brother to hold a title?

    He has a legit chance. I thought Cherry beat Pedraza last time out. I think Hyland might shock Russell on that same card.

      I think we will have to wait for Callum for a 'Smith' world champion
      Good luck to Stephen though i hope he does it

        Liam Smith is the WBO World super welterweight title. Family ready has it's first. But agree that more likely that Callum is next rather than Stephen.

            Smith will have his work cut out for him against Pedraza. Just check out this record. 21-0 is mighty impressive in my opinion. Do you guys think Smith could stand a chance to snatch the title?

                I dunno...it looks like a pretty even match on the paper. Stephen can hit, but is he also good enough to get the better of Pedraza? Pedraza looks like a solid all around fighter.

                  I think Pedraza will win pretty comfortably. I had Cherry beating him but I think Cherry is actually world class, I'm not sure Smith is on that level

                      Looking forward to this, it will be very difficult, but he has a chance.

                        50/50 fight for me. Pedraza might be slightly overrated and I think Smith has a big chance to win it.
