It has been announced that Beswicks Legal client, Callum Smith (22-0-0 17 KO), will fight Anthony Dirrell (30-1-1 24 KO) for the WBC Super-Middleweight title.
Purse bids took place in New York on 3 March 2017, with TGC Promotions winning the right to promote the contest. It is anticipated that it will take place in the US in May/June.
Beswicks Legal advises Callum Smith on all legal matters relating to his professional boxing career. Sean O’Toole, who joined the sports law team in January 2017 and has acted for a number of boxers and other athletes, comments:
“We are delighted to be part of Callum’s team alongside Joe Gallagher (trainer/manager) and Matchroom Boxing (promoter). He is one of the UK’s leading boxing prospects and a consummate professional inside and outside the ring.
Anthony Dirrell and Callum are two of the best boxers in the division so this contest promises to be a great one for spectators. Much is being made of the home advantage, but Callum is not at all fazed by having to travel; he knows that if he takes his A-game then he will be favourite to bring the title home. We wish him all the best for the fight.”
