Liam Smith comes into this weekend’s fight against Jessie Vargas with the knowledge that a defeat will end his hopes of another world title shot.
The Liverpudlian picked up a superb stoppage win over fellow Merseyside super-welterweight Anthony Fowler last time out.
But this is a jump up in levels as Smith prepares to take on American Vargas who has been in with the likes of Manny Pacquiao, Adrien Broner and Mikey Garcia.
It is a massive fight for the chief support of a blockbuster main event between Katie Taylor and Amanda Serrano, so this night of action is not one you want to miss.
