FRANK WARREN COLUMN: Liam Smith at his best can beat Jaime Munguia and bring belt home
But the Liverpool fighter is ready to upset the odds when he meets Mexican Jaime Munguia for the WBO light-middleweight crown in Las Vegas.
Smith is a massively underrated fighter and the best to come out of a talented family of four boxing brothers.
Liam has lost just once in his 28-fight career – and that was when he defended the WBO title against Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez.
Smith wouldn’t let me pull him out of that fight against the marvellous Mexican despite picking up a nasty cut in sparring.
