The undercard for the long awaited Beterbiev vs Smith bout in January 2024 has now been confirmed. Callum Smith had been due to challenge the Unified Light Heavyweight champion Artur Beterbiev on 19 August 2023, but the fight was postponed due to a bone infection to Beterbiev.

The fight has now been moved to 13 January 2024 at the Centre Videotron in Quebec Canada, and promoters Top Rank has announced their undercard including an additional world title bout.
