Default Paul Smith to fight for English Title next year.

****** says hes going to get him an English Title **** next year.

Is this a joke, coming of some of the biggest exposure that a fighter could get. Hes undefeated with a good record, surley he should be going for European titles or at least British. The English title mean jack ****!

Around the world if you asked people that follow sports to name 3 current british boxers, he would be 3rd after hatton and calzaghe due to the contedner.

Plus hes a bloody good boxer. i hate frank ******!

So do Contender promotions have no hold over him? Thought they would have liked him on some of their cards seeing as he was so popular. I always thought they entered into a contract when they appeared on the show.

Suprising.

Steve, who has looked back to his best in his last two outings, is certainly confident of success against Smith. Although he knows Smith is good, he is confident his southpaw style will confuse him enough to rack up the points.

Bendall fights over six-threes against durable Ukrainian portsider Alexander Matviechuk on Wednesday evening in Walsall.

But I too think ****** is a ****.
If he wanted to "do it the right way" he would have fought for the english title in his 10th bout..........not after all the fights he has had.

he has passed that level....just a waste of time. go straight for the british belt, then advance to euro straight away.

I think in this case the opponent is more significant then the title and its definately a step in the right direction.

****** is a ****...but going for the english title is fair enough. remember that theres still el**** and lockett above him...then theres also a faded eastman, plus macklin and darren barker are going to be in the mix soon enough.

I believe they get co-promotion rights, but their hold can't be as tight as it was for the first two seasons. Otherwise, there's no way they would have been able to get any fighters who have big promoters (i.e. Codrington being promoted by DiBella and Dash, Smith by ******, Soliman by Goosen Tutor, etc.).

Plus, I honestly think Smith is being overrated here. He's a decent fighter, and he shows a lot of grit and determination, but I'm not sure I see any of his physical tools being particularly special. Considering he doesn't have freakish talent, being moved along slowly is probably the right move.

The English title basically is the British title. If you're the best in England, you're the best in Britain. It's that simple.
