Callum John Smith is a professional boxer from the United Kingdom.

Early life

Callum grew up in an estate near Anfield Stadium, and across from the Rotunda ABC gym. His family consisted of his parents, three brothers (Paul 1982, Stephen 1985, and Liam 1988), and two sisters (Chloe 1994, Hollie 2000). Callum’s youth was comparable to many others in that he spent most of his time playing football with friends and watching TV shows.

His favourite programme was Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, which inspired his nickname ‘Callumundo,’ which he still uses today in its shorter form, ‘Mundo.’

Career

Amateur career

Smith competed as an amateur with Rotunda ABC in Liverpool, where he won the 2010 Great Britain welterweight title, the 2011 Great Britain Middleweight title, and GB Boxing internationally.

Smith upheld family tradition by winning a silver medal in the welterweight division at the 2010 Commonwealth Games in New Delhi, India, following brothers Paul, who also won silver at the 2002 Commonwealth Games in Manchester, England, and Stephen, who claimed a gold medal at the 2006 Commonwealth Games in Melbourne, Australia. Smith advanced to the final after victories over Aston Brown of Scotland and Carl Hield of Bahrain, only to be defeated by Northern Irish Paddy Gallagher.

Professional career

Smith joined the professional ranks in October 2012, under the promotional umbrella of Matchroom Sport, and, like his brothers, would be tutored by Manchester-based trainer Joe Gallagher. In 2012, it was revealed that he would make his professional debut on the undercard of Carl Froch vs. Yusaf Mack at Nottingham’s Capital FM Arena.

In his debut, he defeated Dan Blackwell by a wide points margin over four rounds, but the victor was not totally satisfied with his performance. The following month, Smith returned to the ring for another four-round bout at the London Olympia, this time against James Tucker, and ‘Mundo’ easily won every round.

Domestic and Regional success

Callum Smith defeated Patrick Mendy in a British record sixth first-round knockout on September 21, 2013, to win the vacant English super-middleweight title. Smith won the vacant WBC International super-middleweight title on October 26th by a sixth-round knockout over Ruben Eduardo Acosta (27–8, 10 KOs).

On April 19, Smith faced French boxer Francois Bastient (43–10, 18 KOs) at the Phones 4u Arena. Bastient was knocked out in the third round by his corner, despite beating the count of referee Mr Finch.

World Boxing Super Series

On July 6, 2017, it was announced that Smith would compete in the inaugural World Boxing Super Series, with the champion receiving prize money and the Muhammad Ali Trophy. Because Smith is the WBC’s number one ranked super-middleweight contender, the WBC has stated that he will fight for their Diamond belt in the quarter-finals. WBA champion George Groves, Jürgen Brähmer, and undefeated contenders Erik Skoglund and Jamie Cox were among those competing.

Smith defended his WBA super middleweight and The Ring super middleweight titles against Canelo Alvarez on December 19, 2020. The WBC super-middleweight belt was also up for grabs. Smith was knocked out in twelve rounds by Canelo and never seemed to be able to hurt him with his shots. Canelo won by scores of 117-111 and 119-109 on two occasions.

Professional boxing record

Smith has a tremendous 27-1 record, according to BoxRec. The unbeaten fighter has won 19 of his 20 fights by knockout, giving him a knockout percentage of 67%. Smith won on points in his professional debut against Dan Blackwell in 2012 and hasn’t looked back since.

‘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. The Scouser has also had a few notable battles, including a title defence against John Ryder. His toughest test, though, came in 2020 against Canelo Alvarez. Despite the heartbreaking defeat to the Mexican, Smith has set up an interesting 2021 with the possibility of going up to light-heavyweight.

Smith claimed that when he initially met Kim, he decided not to mention his boxing background. “I met my partner Kim when we were both on holiday with mates,” he explained to Square Mile. “I didn’t want to tell her that I was a boxer so told her that I was an electrician. ” That made things a little awkward when the truth was revealed, but we are still extremely happy together after many years!”

Smith won the WBA title shortly before Alba was born in Saudi Arabia.

When he returned to the UK after defeating George Groves, he had to run out and buy baby supplies right away. “As soon as my fight was done, the day I got home, she said ‘let’s go to Mothercare’,” Smith recalled. “I was unable to say no. I’d just won the world championship, and I’m standing there looking at prams. “I didn’t have the guts to say, ‘Well, I’m not going to press it anyway!
