Callum Smith wants to make his first world title defence in May

Callum Smith’s dream of fighting at Anfield has hit major stumbling blocks, but trainer Joe Gallagher still hopes the world champion will receive a homecoming title defence.

The 28-year-old super-middleweight had wanted to make the first defence of his WBA ‘super’ title at the home of Liverpool football club, after claiming the belt with a knockout of George Groves in the World Boxing Super Series final in September.

But Gallagher admits the cost of securing the 54,000 seated stadium and preferred opponent Andre Ward has complicated plans for a fight in May.
