    What's happening with Smith?

    I've seen BJS has got his fight sorted but I've heard absolutely nothing about Smith for months now.

    Are they looking to set up the winner between BJS/Murray vs Smith?

    His fight against Ryder is a year next month.

    He doesn't want to fight. If he did he would. Most inactive fighter out there.

    Mundane Smith just wants a cash out with Canelo. He has no ambition to fight anyone else. He's been a massive let down as a world champ.

    I think there looking to try get the Yildirim fight to grab the WBC belt.

    Then he'll either fight Saunders or as you all have said, just waiting to cash out against Canelo.

    I kind of don't want him to get the WBC title fight against Yildirim if it's just going to be held hostage.

    His career has been a huge disappointment since the WBSS and he went off the boil after beating Rebrasse and Fielding back to back. I never understood why they didn't push for a world title after those fights.

    They want undue megabucks to step anywhere near a fight, Joe G seems to be the blocking point for most of his fighters, understandable he looks after them but it's becoming a farce.

    Indeed. He's so stiff they rub him down with teak oil. Oh and he's not inactive, he's just out cos he's getting woodworm treatment! Any live body will plane the Plank. Timberrrr!!!

    Atleast he actually wants to fight Canelo unlike some other British fighter

    BJS boxed last November and is due out early December.
    It's over a year since Warrington beat the world no.199 and he's still got no fight due.

    He may as well have stayed with Warren.

    True but Warrington at least has a good CV.

    You're assuming he wants to fight. Maybe he's happy being surrounded by back-slappers in Leeds whilst he tweets about football and rugby.
