Smith and Zeuge both weighed in for Saturday’s bout, live on Sky Sports
A look ahead to Paul Smith’s bid to become a world champion at the third time of asking.
The Liverpool man, who twice lost to Arthur Abraham in his two previous tilts at world honours, will face WBA ‘regular’ super-middleweight champion Tyron Zeuge this Saturday night, live on Sky Sports.
It’s a fight that I think Paul Smith can win and it’s one that I hope he does win. It’s the last chance for Paul and I would love to see him pull it off.
Whatever Paul Smith has got left, he needs to leave it in the ring on Saturday – if he doesn’t, he loses. Smith wins a hard-fought fight on points.
Tyron Zeuge is unbeaten and the fight is in Germany so it is a tough ask for Smith. This is his chance, his last one, and I hope he can bring the belt home.
