Liam Smith, what is his future? Empty Liam Smith, what is his future?

Liam Smith is defending his WBO light middleweight strap against Predrag Radosevic this Saturday on Boxnation. Despite holding a major world strap does anyone believe he will get a big name in the near future?

Warren and the Boxnation family keep throwing big names out there such as Brook, Cotto, Khan and the Charlo twins. I don't think any of these will ever happen as none of the names about will earn enough money or recognition from fighting Smith.

Do you think Smith ever will get a big fight? or will the fact that he is stuck on Boxnation harm his chances?

I think he should look for the weakest contenders in the top 10 for the next two years and fight them while studiously looking at the weight above to see if anybody s**t wins an ABC there....If so move up beat them and then look for the weakest contenders in that list and fight them for two years whilst studiously looking for a crap champion to win a belt at the weight above.....Then win that....

Then retire an alltime great like Ricky Burns...

Like Broner...

Not sure where I've ever said I was a Broner fan..

All I've said is that he's a talented fighter...

A move to matchroom, all four Smith's on one card, defend against Kell Brook and Eddie gets a new bentley curtesy of the PPV money.

Haha, I'd say pretty accurate for British boxing.

I think it's pretty safe to say this is the very best possible scenario for him. No more to add.

I'm in tonight, I pay for boxnation, and probably still won't watch his "homecoming".

Callum is levels above the rest of the brothers in my opinion.

Got a nice solid look about him Liam Smith. Definitely one to watch and looking forward to see what happens when he steps up. Could surprise a few people.

Two fights that have got me salivating- Smith vs Canelo and perhaps even more so the domestic clash of Smith vs Liam Williams. If they announced either of those two tomorrow, I'd be very content.

Still don't know how good he is because he hasn't had a real test yet

Be interesting to see who they get for this "Big Autumn clash"

He doesn't look in the same class as Callum to be honest, I can't see him competing against the top guys to be honest.

We all know about your predictions Hammer, Smith is definitely one I will be following, sturdy, crowd-pleasing style, killer instinct, can bang. The two fights I mention can't fail to be barnstormers.
