World Boxing Association (WBA) Super World Super Middleweight Champion Callum Smith is set to defend his title against Hassan N’Dam N’Jikam this Saturday on an action packed fight card.
The fight will take place at Madison Square Garden in New York and will be broadcast live on DAZN. The card will feature three title fights for the night, and it is important to point out that all of the title fights on the night will feature WBA titles.
“Mundo” Smith will be coming into the fight having been inactive since he won the title last September when he squared off against George Groves in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, in a fight that he dominated and won in emphatic fashion; with Groves entering retirement after the fight.
The challenger, N’Jikam, is a battle hardened veteran of 40 professional fights, and has fought his career at middleweight – including a stint in 2017 where he won the WBA World Middleweight Title in an upset victory over Ryota Murata. He is entering the fight after a victory over Martin Murray in December at the Manchester Arena.
Champion Callum Smith enters the fight with a stellar record of 25 wins, no losses, and 18 wins via knockout. N’Jikam, on the other hand, also has a stellar record of 37 wins, 3 defeats, and 21 wins via knockout.
