Nieky Holzken: “I am stepping up to meet one of the big guys in the super middleweight division. But the fans can expect the unexpected on Saturday. I am here to beat Callum Smith.”

Callum Smith: “Holzken looks like a good fighter. It really doesn’t matter who I am facing on Saturday. I wasn’t happy about my performance against Erik Skoglund in the quarter-final, but this time I will make a statement. Not only to the boxing fans, but also to George Groves. I want to put on a good show on Saturday,” said Smith.
