It’s now basically confirmed that Stephen Smithhas signed with Matchroom Sport, pending any legal action Frank Warren may take (credit: proboxinginsider.com).

Eddie Hearn and Matchroom Sport are delighted to announce that Stephen Smith has signed a promotional deal with the company and will box on the undercard of Carl Froch vs. George Groves World title bill on Sky Sports Box Office on November 23 in Manchester.

Full statement at the above link.

Smith signing with Matchroom was always the likely result as soon as it became clear he wanted to leave his promotional contract with Warren. Matchroom have managed to pick themselves up an exciting talent who at 28 is just coming into his boxing prime. If the bout with Gary Sykes can be made for the undercard of Carl Froch vs George Groves than it will be a real addition to the card.
