After their epic first encounter ended in controversial fashion, former WBO World Super-Welterweight Champion Smith and reigning British Super-Welterweight Champion Williams, will aim to settle the score on neutral ground in a WBO World Title Eliminator.
An action-packed undercard is set to feature some of the very best emerging local North East talent, as well as some other excellent young fighters from further afield.
Country Durham’s Thomas Patrick Ward (20-0) will defend his British Super-Bantamweight Championship against Brimingham’s Sean Davis (13-1-0); whilst Guisborough’s Josh Leather (12-0) will face Sunderland’s Glen Foot (20-1-0) in a what is set to be a pulsating North East Derby for the IBF European Super-Lightweight Championship.
In addition, local prospects Troy Williamson (Darlington, 3-0) Kalam Leather (Guisborough, 2-0) Joe Maphosa (Thornaby, 1-0) Michael Watson (Sedgefield, Pro debut) and Jeff Saunders (11-0) of Sedgefield will all appear on the bill.
