“I’d love a rematch. He beat me and beat me well, no excuses, but I do believe we’ll see a better version of me at 175” Callum Smith told the Liverpool Echo
“That’s my only regret on the fight that we never saw the best version of me in with him. I didn’t perform on the night, and that’s that. That’s on me”
“If I were offered the fight at 175, I’d jump at it if I was a world champion. I’m not going to hold my breath on that one”
“I think we’ll see a better version of me at 175. I think we’ll see a better version of him at 175, and you’ll definitely see a better version of me.”
The super-middleweight bout between Canelo and Smith failed to catch fire and capture the attention of boxing fans. Canelo dominated the fight and for whatever reason, American fans did not see the best of Callum Smith. The Brit now has a new trainer in Buddy McGirt and Smith could be a different fighter with a fresh outlook and at a new wieght, light-heavyweight.
In order to achieve a Canelo rematch, Smith would need to become a world champion at light-heavyweight and begin to grab the attention of boxing fans with good performances and wins
