The very talented Christopher Rebrasse, who’s very well-known for his power in the ring, is very confident that on the 26th of June he’ll successfully stop Callum Smith and see his undefeated record come to an end, in a fight that pay per head services believe will pack plenty of action.
Smith – a super-middleweight fighter who holds plenty of promise – had 12 KO’s in his run to 16-0-0, which wasn’t very difficult for him at all to accomplish. Now it looks like the 25-year-old wants to face who else but fellow countrymen James de Gale and George Groves in a bid for world titles, and fans around the world would not mind seeing this happen.
However, the boxing world won’t forget when Rebrasse, 29-years-old, gave Groves a very tough test last year in a clash at Wembley Arena, and now he wants to crush Smith’s hopes and set back his plans right in front of the Briton’s fans.
The Frenchman said: “There is lots of hype around Callum Smith – I’m still unsure how good he is.
“My team and I have looked at three or four fights of him. He has a clean and rigid style of boxing – if he is as good as they say he is I expect him to bring it to me on June 26.
“I’ve competed at world level and he hasn’t yet so there are reservations from us on him. We are taking Callum seriously as there has been much talk about him but we intend to expose him before he has a chance to compete at world level.
Callum is a good opponent for me right now; I can beat him and I’m expecting an open fight.
“I was number three with the WBC and a former European champion – Callum is a good opponent for me right now; I can beat him and I’m expecting an open fight.
“I see a committed, gruelling fight between us. I am going to make every effort to ensure that it doesn’t go 12 rounds. Callum has only gone the distance once before so this will be the same as most of his fights, except I will be the one to end it early.
“I will leave nothing in the ring as this fight is make or break for my career. I can’t afford another setback at this stage, especially against a young prospect.
“I’m feeling very confident and focused for this fight with Callum – there is no pressure on me as everyone is expecting him to beat me, but I wouldn’t want it any other way.
“My camp has been calm and focused, we are ready to return to England and cause a big upset by beating Callum in his home city.”
Rebrasse seems to be very confident in his words, but will he deliver? That’s the big question. However, boxing fans and pay per head services know that this fight is nothing to take lightly at all, and would really like to see what could ultimately happen when both men face off. Regardless of the outcome, one thing is for certain: this will be a fight to remember.
