    Smith has won four fights since his 2019 loss to Dmitry Bivol, who become one of the pound-for-pound best boxers in the world last month when he beat Canelo Alvarez. Smith defended his world title for the first time earlier this year by knocking out Steve Geffrard.

    Quotes corner

    Artur Beterbiev : "It's very important fight for me but I'm more focused on my opponent instead of the venue. I always ask my conditioning and boxing coach, how do you think I'm doing compared to two years ago and they tell me I'm doing better.

    "This camp has been very good I think, compared to my last one. I want to thank my team and coaches, sparring partners who have helped me during this camp, it's been a good one."

    Joe Smith Jr : "This is a huge opportunity, Beterbiev is a huge name in boxing. Everybody knows who he is at this point, he has two world titles and I want this belt. I think this fight is going to be great, we've got two big punchers and like I said he is a big name.

    "I'm fighting at Madison Square Garden, close to home. All my fans are going to be here to support me and if not from here, I'm glad to be here defending my WBO and unifying two other belts."
