Frank Lotierzo Talks WBSS Smith vs Holzken For Saturday – This Saturday, February 24th, The World Boxing Super Series will have its second semifinal of its super middleweight tournament. England’s Callum Smith (23-0-0, 17 KOs) faces Nieky Holzken (13-0-0, 10 KOs) at the Arena Nürnberger Versicherung in Nuremberg, Germany.
Originally Smith was to fight former world champion Juergen Braehmer, but Braehmer, one of the leading contenders to win the series, had to pull out with an illness. The show must go on, so the WBSS found a substitute in Nieky Holzken who is from the Netherlands. The plan is to have the winner fight WBA world super middleweight champion George Groves in June.
In this latest TBC segment with Frank Lotierzo, he takes a look at Saturday’s match-up and what we may see in the ring.
