Hearn Makes Golovkin No.1 Choice To Challenge Smith


Promoter Eddie Hearn has revealed that his first choice title defence for WBA super middleweight champion Callum Smith is a ‘Super Fight’ against dangerous former world middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin in front of over 50,000 fight fans at the Anfield soccer ground in Liverpool, England.


Speaking to Sky Sports Hearn confirmed he has had a brief contact with Team Golovkin, stating: "I’ve spoken to Tom Loeffler [’GGG’s promoter] about it before. not since the press conference last week, though.


"That’s my No 1 choice for Callum Smith.


"I think it’s a fight that fills Anfield. It’s a great profile fight, it’s a great fight, full stop.


"Also, for Golovkin it gives him a chance to move up, do what ’Canelo’ is doing, fight for the ’Super’ title, and also for the ’Ring’ magazine title at 168lbs."
