He will defend his titles on Saturday night against a former world champion Callum Smith of England.
Smith (29-1, 21 KOs), from Liverpool, England has only one defeat and that was to the Mexican superstar Canelo Alvarez, he has an impressive boxing record and also carries a good punch with 21 of his 29 wins being won via knockout.
