Former junior middleweight champion Liam Smith and Eddie Hearn reach a deal
MTK Global’s Liam ‘Beefy’ Smith (26-2-1-KO14) has agreed a three-fight promotional deal with Eddie Hearn and Matchroom Boxing.
The popular Liverpudlian is moving on amicably after many successful years under the guidance of Frank Warren and Queensberry Promotions.
Now 30, the former WBO super-welterweight champion of the world is looking forward to challenging for the highest honours once again.
“First and foremost, I just want to say a massive thank you to Frank for everything he has done for my career.
“It was under Frank I won the world title and challenged twice more for the belt and I’ll always be very appreciative.
“It’s a little bittersweet to be moving on but I just felt that at this stage of my career a change would serve me well and I’m happy to be joining a great stable in Matchroom.”
Queensberry Promoter Frank Warren was quick to wish Smith well, adding:
“It has been a pleasure working with Liam. We’ve had a great ride and I’m proud of what we achieved together. I now wish him all the best for the future.”
