THE IDEAL NEXT MOVE...

Smith is plot­ting a sta­dium show­down in Liver­pool

“I’D love to unify. I’d love to just be in­volved in big fights. As much as there was a lot of pres­sure on that [Groves] fight I ac­tu­ally en­joyed it, it was a good think­ing match and even though I won rounds and lost rounds I en­joyed it as it was go­ing on. I en­joyed the think­ing side of it. I like win­ning but it’s bet­ter win­ning when you’ve had to earn it. In the fu­ture, I’m big enough to move up, maybe I can move up and try and be a two-weight world cham­pion.

“There’s a lot of big things I want to do. I’d love to fight in Amer­ica, I’d love to fight at An­field.

“Out­door shows are pos­si­ble and it’s not just Joshua. You can do it. Kell Brook’s done it. Camp­bell-coyle done it, Framp­ton’s done it, War­ring­ton-selby, so it can be done with the right pro­mot­ing. I’ve al­ways said An­field is a dream. Even when I’ve said it, it was kind of a dream, you never re­ally think it will be re­al­ity but I’ve done the hard part, I’ve got a world ti­tle so why can’t I de­fend it at An­field?

“Again, I think it just needs the right pro­mot­ing, the right fight, right un­der­card and I do think it will sell well.”
