Liam ‘Beefy’ Smith endeavours to become the third member of the famous Liverpool fighting clan to capture a Commonwealth professional title on Saturday week when he fronts up to West Drayton’s Steve O’Meara for the vacant light-middleweight strap at London’s ExCel Arena on Saturday week. It is unquestionably one of the domestic match-ups of this year.
Steve O'Meara and Liam Smith will challenge for the Vacant Commonwealth Light-Middleweight title on Saturday 15th December at the ExCeL London.
The fight has been added to Frank Warren's multi-title extravaganza that features the best of British, including Ricky Burns, George Groves and Billy Joe Saunders.
Queensberry Promotions have been forced to postpone their debut BoxAcademy show after main event fighter Steve O’Meara pulled out of his fight with Bradley Pryce due to illness.
O’Meara was scheduled to top the bill against veteran Welshman Pryce but withdrew with breathing problems leaving the Warren sons no option but to postpone Thursday night’s show at the Troxy in east London.
Queensberry Promotions said in statement:
When Steve O’Meara climbs into the ring at the Troxy in London’s East End on Thursday night not only will he be tussling with ring veteran Bradley Pryce but he’ll also be jostling for space in the crowded market of public attention.
Due to Tony Conquest and Michael Walsh both being unfit to box, the first instalment of Queensberry Promotions’ new concept of show, BoxAcademy, has been moved to May 3 at the Troxy, in East London.
With both Conquest and Walsh unable to box until later in the year, the bill for the first BoxAcademy show will instead feature light-middleweight prospect and reigning Southern Area champion Steve O’Meara, in a 10 round contest with former Commonwealth champion Bradley Pryce.
