Biography

Liam Smith aka Beefy

Liam Smith is a talented professional Super Welterweight boxer and the former WBO World Super-Welterweight Champion. He has won the British, Commonwealth, WBA Continental, WBO Intercontinental and WBO World Super Welterweight titles.

Smith has a tough chin and the boxing skills to throw opposition around the ring for the full stretch. However, he also has potentially lethal power, winning some fights by a notable stoppage.

He is the brother of boxers Paul, Stephen and Callum Smith.

As an amateur boxer, Liam Smith won the 2007 & 2008 ABA English Championships against Luke Gray and Steve Turner.
