Liam Smith names three possible opponents for Anfield fight, including current world champion – dazn. com
Liam Smith named three opponents he would be ready to fight next, with Anfield as the venue.
Smith defeated Chris Eubank Jr. on Saturday night in Manchester, delivering a fourth round stoppage to claim victory.
Eubank Jr. has a rematch clause that he can choose to exercise, and a second fight is something Jones would entertain, but he has other names in mind, too.
“I think the GGG [Gennadiy Golovkin] fight can be made, ” Smith told Sky Sports .
Gennadiy Golovkin is an unified champ at middleweight, and the particular Kazakh could be ready to fight again after he took on Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez last year, losing the trilogy time, on that occasion at super middleweight.
“I’ve also agreed I’ll accept the rematch if Chris wants it, because that was put in [the contract] beforehand. I’d love the rematch at Anfield.
“I’ve beat Chris Eubank, it’s not like I’ve lost and I have to try to rebuild or retire. I’m back in the mix again and I’m going to be getting linked with everyone now. ”
Another option would be to take on Kell Brook, who scored a convicing win over Amir Khan in 2022, and could be tempted back into the ring for another high profile, all-British fight.
Cruz added: “I’ve seen Kell wants to come back again out of retirement. That’s a huge fight again, so I’m just sitting pretty in a good place.
“I don’t mean to sound big headed with this, but when you put me there after this particular, it sells well anyway regardless.
“People get on the train, people want another night like that. Once my name pops back up at Anfield, I think, especially the Scouse fans just want a bill at Anfield.
“We’ve had the Goodison Park show, I think we’re desperate for a show at Anfield.
“It’s a big dream and it could be a possibility. ”
