Steve O'Meara and Liam Smith will challenge for the Vacant Commonwealth Light-Middleweight title on Saturday 15th December at the ExCeL London.

 

The fight has been added to Frank Warren's multi-title extravaganza that features the best of British, including Ricky Burns, George Groves and Billy Joe Saunders, all live and exclusive on The Channel of Champions BoxNation (Sky Ch. 437/Virgin Ch. 546).

 

West Drayton's O'Meara was due to fight Ghana's Obadai Sai, who was and still is the mandatory challenger for the title, but Sai was unavailable due to injury which allowed O'Meara to face Liverpool's Smith for the vacant title, with the winner to face Sai within 90 days.

 

O'Meara, a former Southern Area Champion, has won his last three fights by stoppage - with two in the first round - and is confident of landing his first major belt.

 

He said, “I’m really happy to be fighting for the Commonwealth title and that it’s an all British showdown between me and Smith. I had agreed to fight Sai, but unfortunately he was injured, but if I come through I’ll defend against him in the New Year. By beating Smith, who was a top amateur and is now an unbeaten pro, it will be a massive breakthrough for me. I’m not taking him lightly, it will be a great fight on the night and I’ll do what I have to do to win, but with the way I’m punching at the moment and if I land clean, Smith will be out of there.”

 

Smith is unbeaten in twelve fights with five stoppages and has looked impressive since linking up with Manchester trainer Joe Gallagher. Liam is aiming to become the third Smith brother to win a professional title with older brother Paul formerly a British Super-Middleweight champion and Stephen currently the WBO Intercontinental Super-Featherweight Champion.

 

“This will be the fight of the night, no doubt about it, on what is already a cracking line up of fights. O’Meara’s a good fighter, but I’m leagues above him and it will show on the night when I win the Commonwealth belt. I’ve been looking forward to getting my first opportunity to fight for a pro title and I’m not going to let it pass me by. This will be the next title added to the Smith family.” Said Smith.

 

Ricky Burns’ WBO World Lightweight title defence against Jose Ocampo headlines a massive six-title card that features George Groves defending his Commonwealth Super-Middleweight title against Glen Johnson in the chief support; plus Commonwealth Middleweight Champion Billy Joe Saunders defends his title against Nick Blackwell with the vacant British title also on the line; unbeaten Bradley Skeete challenges Southern Area Welterweight Champion Chas Symonds for his title and WBO International Cruiserweight Champion Tony Conquest defends against Neil Dawson.

Tickets, priced from £40 are available at www.eventim.co.uk or by calling 0844 2491000.

The show will be live and exclusive on BoxNation (Sky Ch. 437/Virgin Ch. 546). Join at www.boxnation.com
