Mundo Time! – Preview: Callum Smith-Erik Skoglund by Glenn McCrory

Callum Smith

The Super Middleweight leg of the World boxing Super Series gets under way this Saturday, 16 September!

If it’s possible to make a night of boxing even more exceptional this is it. London, Liverpool and Las Vegas play host to an unforgettable night of boxing.

Middleweight supremacy is being sorted in Vegas with ‘GGG’ and Canelo finally going head to head in the fight of the year. In London our very own Billy Joe Saunders stakes his claim for the winner if he can get by tough man Willie Monroe Jnr, while at the Echo Arena in Liverpool Callum ‘Mundo” Smith takes centre stage in a superb clash to start the very lucrative Super Series of boxing, taking on a red hot challenge from the undefeated Swedish hope Erik Skoglund.

This is no formality for Callum the youngest of the fighting Smith brothers who are as talented, hard working and professional a fighting family you could meet.

Paul, Stephen and Liam all multi championship challengers and winners in the past have achieved great things, but my gut feeling is they have left the best till last.

Callum Smith is undefeated in 22 bouts with 17 wins inside schedule which shows he can box and punch, but more telling is 10 of those wins have come in the 1st round which tells you a lot more about this quiet and polite 27 year old.

This young man in a hurry was to have challenged for the vacant WBC title against the USA former champion Anthony Dirrell but that stalled and he entered the Super Series alongside other British hopes George Groves, Jamie Cox and Chris Eubank Jr.
His opponent comes with top credentials also.

Scoglund is an undefeated youngster and at just 26 years old he has won all of his 26 contests thus far dispatching 12 by KO and has competed his professional career at light heavyweight which could give him an edge in strength and durability. but that might be the only advantage he has as Smith is taller at 6’3 quicker, and has a great engine, and is very quick.

But that might be the only advantage he has as Smith is taller at 6’3 quicker, and has a great engine, and is very quick.
What more could you ask for? This is a genuine 50/50 fight between two young exciting and talented undefeated warriors with it all on the line.

I’m massively excited about this fight and this night of boxing as we are guaranteed action and skill throughout. In my opinion, one thing is nailed on, they will be at full voice on Merseyside as a superstar comes of age and his name is Callum Smith.
