Boxing Odds Echo Arena This Saturday - Fight hungry Liverpool hosts Frank Warren and his Queensbury Promotions as they have a full night of boxing headlined by the WBO world title fight at 154 pounds between belt holder Liam Smith (22-0-1) and Predrag Radosevic (30-1).

For Smith, this will be the seocnd defense of the WBO bel the won back in October of 2015. He defeated John Thompson (17-1) to win the belt vacated by Demetrius Andrade due to inactivity, and he came back on two months notice for his first defense against rival "Jimmy" Kilrain Kelly. As for Radosevic, he brings a strong record to the table, and he has had experience at a high level. His olone caree rloss came back in July of 2013 against Germany's Felix Sturm, but his recor dalso has a lot of trial horses and journeymen on it as well. He has never fought in England either, which will be a new experience all it's own.

Smith is from a popular Liverpool family of fighting brothers, as siblings Paul, Stephen and Callum are all active fighters ranked near the top of their respective weight calsses in the UK. Look for Smith to have massive fan support from his hometown crowd.
