Callum Smith hoped to defend WBA belt at home of Liverpool Football Club

Callum Smith is set to miss out on a homecoming fight at Anfield, but the WBA champion could instead seek a unification fight against Caleb Plant or Gilberto Ramirez.

Smith had hoped to make the first defence of his WBA ‘super’ title at the home of Liverpool Football Club, although these ambitious plans for the Merseysider seem to have been scuppered by the cost of hiring the 54,000 seated stadium, and the unavailability of big-name opponents.

Alternative options will be discussed when Smith sits down with promoter Eddie Hearn and the 28-year-old super-middleweight will target newly crowned IBF champion Caleb Plant, or WBO title holder Ramirez.
