Cruiserweight prospect Chris Billam-Smith has made an explosive start since turning pro under the Cyclone Promotions banner last year. The former ABA finalist made a huge statement on his professional debut in September, as he spectacularly wiped out Russ Henshaw in the opening round before an elated home crowd in Bournemouth.


‘The Gentleman’ has since extended his record to seven wins from as many contests, including impressive performances on the respective undercards of stablemates George Groves and Josh Taylor. The 28-year-old recently overcame compatriot Robin Dupre to become mandatory challenger to the Commonwealth Cruiserweight title.
