    Yes this has been brewing for some time. Beefy hasn't been happy with the amount of times he's been out of late, plus his bros is hoping for some big evenings in Liverpool and beefy wants to be a part of that.
    Whether there's been more going on behind the scenes with him and Frank I'm not sure but he hasn't been keeping beefy active.
    Tbf beefy was the one Smith that stayed loyal to Frank and he was rewarded with the world title, then the big fight with canelo came along.
    Beefy has always been my fav Smith bros, I hope he gets what he's looking for in his move to MR.

    Smith-Brook is a good fight. Let them get whichever bum fights they'll have next out of the way then get them on. Or stick it on the AJ PPV card alongside something else

    Great move for him.

    He’s got Eggington, Cheeseman, Fowler and of course Brook under the same umbrella now. Good domestic fights which should be easy to make. Plus the DAZN stable/platform.

    I think the big one we can expect is a massive Smith’s night at Anfield, Beefy, Swifty and of course Callum headlining a massive night of boxing. Looking forward to it.

    A wise move tbf

    All the domestic light middleweights are with Matchroom which are the best fights for him atm and this might be an unpopular opinion but i'd rather see Brook-smith than Brook-Khan it'd be a good scrap.

    Would love to see Smith vs Brook. I honestly think Smith beats him.

    It’s the right decision, Frank has done a great job for Smith but there’s nowhere else he can take him. Under Matchroom there’s new opportunities domestically.

    I don’t think anyone can argue Frank done well by Smith but he’s left him out in the cold recently. You could tell Frank really wanted Williams to beat him too, he put all his eggs in that basket and got his eye wiped and I don’t think Liam ever forgave him.

    What makes you think the Smiths even sell out the echo?

    Stadium fights straight away attract another 10k or so casuals. Callum is borderline superstar now and is ready to make the step up after the WBSS win. A boxing match at Anfield would attract at least 25k, with a big named opponent or a stacked undercard it will do in excess of 30.

    Always surprised Liam stayed with Frank given that Eddie was getting good fights for the other brothers especially Paul!
