Stephen "Swifty" Smith is a Liverpool-born featherweight who currently holds a 14 - 1 record.
Smith had a prolific amateur career in which he entered the squared circle over 150 times.
During this time Smith won the ABA Championships in 2005 and 2006, the 2006 Four Nations and a gold medal at the 2006 Commonwealth games in Melbourne.
Smith persisted with an amateur career until turning professional in 2008. He arrived on the scene in explosive form, winning his first four fights through knockouts.
The Merseysider extended his record to 10 - 0 in 2010 before earning a fight for the Commonwealth featherweight title. Smith won the bout - which was also a British Championship eliminator - before going on to win the British belt in 2011.
The Liverpudlian suffered his only career defeat in September 2011, losing both his British and Commonwealth Championships to Lee Selby in the process.
Smith beat Ben Jones in March 2012 to win the WBO Intercontinental Super Featherweight Championship.
