The battle of Liverpool ‘Smith v Fowler – Public workout at Grand Central

It’s set to be a hard-hitting night on Merseyside when Liam Smith takes on Anthony Fowler in the ‘Battle of Liverpool’ which sees the north and south side of the city go head-to-head.

Fowler’s latest outing was at this year’s Fight Camp where he produced an eighth-round stoppage win against Germany’s Rico Mueller to set-up this clash with Smith.

However, while a win for Fowler might kickstart his road towards a world title shot, a loss for Smith could spell the end of his aspirations at the top of the game.

Whoever is victorious will have re-ignited their career, but will also give their respective side of the city the all-important bragging rights.

The public workout took place, on Wednesday 6th October, at the chameleon of a venue that is the Grand Central Hall on Renshaw Street in Liverpool City Centre.

Hayley Smitton from the Grand Central said:

“We are known for holding some great events here in Liverpool and for boxing events. From weigh- ins to public workouts. The atmosphere here today was electric and there is clearly no love lost between these two Liverpool middleweights.”

Liam Smith and Anthony Fowler will go head-to-head in a battle of the Mersey, which will see the north and south of the city lock horns. The fight will take place on Saturday 9th October at 7.00pm at Liverpool’s M&S Arena in front of 10,000 boxing fans.

Other fights on the Fight Card includes Natasha Jonas, Peter McGrail, Ted Cheeseman, Luke Willis and Jamie Mitchell.

Smith (29-3-1, 16 KO) is looking to impress after his controversial defeat to Magomed Kurbanov in Russia, while Fowler (15-1, 12 KO) will be looking to continue his current six in a row winning spree since split decision defeat to Scott Fitzgerald in 2019.
