Paul and Callum Smith, Gavin McDonnell and Kid Galahad complete the line-up on the undercard of the showdown between middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin and IBF welterweight champ Kell Brook at The O2 in London on September 10. The Smiths, McDonnell and Galahad join a stacked card with Lee Haskins defending his IBF world bantamweight title in a rematch with bitter rival Stuart Hall, and Charlie Edwards challenging for a world title against two-weight IBF flyweight champion Johnriel Casimero.
“The card is now set for the biggest night of boxing in 2016,” said promoter Eddie Hearn. “Callum Smith has one more hurdle before the mandatory against WBC champ Badou Jack is called on September 13 and we are looking for him to make a statement on this huge platform. Gavin McDonnell is sitting pretty for a shot at the world title later this year and Paul Smith is also in the hunt with one eye on the winner of the rematch between Giovanni De Carolis and Tyron Zeuge winner for the WBA strap.
“With the three World title fights and Lonsdale belt clash, this night is packed with action as we count down to the moment of truth between unbeaten divisional number ones Gennady Golovkin and Kell Brook.”
