Callum Smith v Mathieu Bauderlique Boxing Betting Tips
Liverpool fighter Callum Smith still have ambitions of becoming world champion again, and he knows an impressive performance will see him get back in the title mix.
Smith is a former WBA (Super) and The Ring super middleweight champion, and he believes he still has enough time to get them belts back.
He won the belts when he defeated George Groves back in 2018. He then successfully defended those titles against Hassan N’Dam N’Jikam and John Ryder.
Smith never ducks a challenge and that was obvious when he agreed to fight Canelo Alvarez with his belts on the line along with the vacant WBC strap.
The British fighter lasted 12 rounds with Alvarez, but he lost a unanimous decision in December 2020. He has only had one fight since that defeat as he knocked out Lenin Castillo inside two rounds at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium before Usyk beat Joshua in their first fight.
He takes on Frenchman Bauderlique who has a professional record of 22 fights, 21 wins and just one defeats.
His only defeat took place in his 13th fight in 2017 when he was stopped in the first round against Dragan Lepei.
Bauderlique has not really fought anyone of note, and this will be a massive step up. I cannot see him laying a glove on Smith let alone beating him. Back Smith to end this inside two rounds.
