    This would be a sparring session for Smith. Richards is clearly domestic level.

    I am fairly sure Warren alluded to attitude with Richards in the past

    No - there are levels to the game.

    Smith is going to Light Heavy and will be looking to challenge for titles there.

    They must have sparred each other. I want to know how Smith gets on fighting him, even if he's currently at a disadvantage weight wise.

    Wont be happening as Johnson has moved to Warren and they are stable mates at Gallaghers.

    Callum with the right matchmaking will be a contender its a light division. My guess is he comes back against a Barrera, Caparello, Boesel then fights someone like Meng or Bolotniks before he fights Bivol or Buatsi in a big fight likely for a world title.

    Would be a huge step back for Smith - so would not happen. Plus Smith moving to L-H.

    Pity he trains with CJ as I would like to see Smith v Johnson at Light-Heavy

    Richards only just squeezed past Lennox Clarke. Lennox is a powerful lad but nowhere near the all round Fighter Smith is.
    To go the distance, Richards would have to run for his life. If he tries to fight Smith, he'll get wiped out in 5.

    Smith will destroy Richards at this or any stage of his career, despite his Canelo disaster he is still levels above all current British super middle weights bar Saunders however sticking around for Saunders is ill advised and I would like to see how his power carries up to Light Heavy. There are big names-a-plenty and some great fights to be made with the likes of Smith Jr, Bertibiev, Bolotnkis, Hart, Ramirez, and old favourites to feast on like Pascal, Jack and Kovalev. With the right management he could have a great run up there and leave a lasting legacy all culminating with a unification fight against Bivol.
