Callum John Smith is a professional boxer from Liverpool, England. He is regarded as one of the top fighters in the division, with the TBRB and ESPN both placing him fourth among Super-middleweights.
The Scouse fighter held several titles in the division and is the former WBA (Super) and The Ring Super-middleweight world champion.
He also won the Super-middleweight division in the 2018 World Boxing Super-series. Smith is known as ‘Mundo.’
Smith’s enthusiasm in the sport began at a young age. He is the youngest of four brothers, all of whom have gone on to become professional boxers.
Smith began boxing at the age of nine at the Rotunda ABC gym in Liverpool. Callum Smith had a pretty good amateur career prior to becoming a professional.
In 2010, he won three national titles, three AIBA titles, and a Commonwealth Silver medal. However, he was never able to realise his ultimate dream of representing his country in the Olympics.
Callum Smith made his professional boxing debut in 2012, signing with Matchroom Boxing and Eddie Hearn. Since then, the Englishman has risen to the top of the division, winning many titles.
Smith has a 27-1 record. The unbeaten fighter has won 19 of his 20 fights by knockout, giving him a knockout percentage of 67%.
‘Mundo’ has won numerous national and European titles, including the WBC International Super-Middleweight Title, the WBC Silver Super-Middleweight Title, the British Super-Middleweight Title, and the European Super-Middleweight Title.
Smith won the WBA (Super) and Ring Magazine super-middleweight belts in 2018 when he defeated George Groves.
His toughest test came in 2020 where he fought against Canelo Alvarez.
Despite the heartbreaking defeat to the Mexican, Smith has set up an interesting line-up for 2021 with the possibility of going up to light-heavyweight.
As of 2021, Callum Smith’s net worth is predicted to be $8 million. In addition, he earned an estimated $4 million from his battle with Canelo Alvarez in 2020.
Smith’s strong interest in charity stems from the fact that his younger sister, Hollie, is autistic. As a result, ‘Mundo’ has made donations to several organisations that educate children with Autism.
For all of his fights, the champion wears shorts with the term “Autism” emblazoned on them. Smith donated £1000 to the Morson Group in 2019, where his sister Hollie has been for several years.
Smith benefits from his status as a previous world champion. The once unbeaten fighter has inked a sponsorship agreement with the well-known automobile dealership AMC Prestige Cars. He has previously received funding from Hublot and Bomberg.
