Liam Smith's opponent for his WBO light middlewight title shot from Michel Soro because of management issues to John Thompson who apparently is rated number 5 by the WBO. Apparently he won the 2015 boxcino tournement.
A world title fight really??

The guy has never been 12 rounds and has a low KO ratio (33%).

I don't know much about him as a fighter, but I enjoyed his work in the Fast Show. If he can bring that kind of form over to his boxing career he could be a danger.

Surely this will impact on his training schedule.

This is why I don't take belts too seriously now. Belts are for holding your jeans up.

Just to pi$$ Trussy off:

They have GGG @ 3

and

Wlad K above Holyfield in the ATG HW list

Boxrec is about as much use for rankings as using a paper towel to dry yourself with after a bath. To be honest only time I've used it is when the prediction comp is on and I haven't heard of some guys in a four round fight. To be fair Warren will probably have them headlining for a world title fight soon enough.

You misunderstand me ..I rate GGG....Best middle in the world...Whilst I think Rigo should be higher I have no probs with him being Top 5...

Just think he escapes the flak others get..

There is an article about the fight on Boxing News 24. They really rate him, although some of those write ups on the site are shockingly biased.

Think the bottom line here is.....He has at least three world title fights on his bill and he's struggling to sell tickets..

The sporting fan is catching up with the Boxing fan me thinks............and realising it's all a little silly.

I predicted the opponent would change. Seems to happen all the time with Warren cards
