This is Smith Jr.’s first WBO title defense. If you look at the opponent on Boxrec, you can see that Geffrard will have a fight tonight.

Joe Smith Jr. (27-3-0, 21 KOs) won against Maxim Vlasov (46-4-0, 26 KOs) by majority decision (114-114, 115-113, 115-112) in April 2021 and secured the WBO World Light Heavy Title. In the past, Smith Jr. also had large calibers in front of his fists. The American could already face in the ring with Jesse Hart, Dmitry Bivol, Bernard Hopkins or Andrzej Fonfara.

31-year-old Miami native Steve Geffrard has agreed to replace Callum Johnson in order to participate in his first world title shot. Without a doubt, Geffrard (18-2, 12 KOs) will be making a huge leap in his opposition quality, in a career that began in 2013.

Joe Smith Jr. (27-3-0, 21 KOs) beat Bernard Hopkins (55-8-2, 32 KOs) out of the ring in the eighth round in 2016. He fell head first onto the floor.
