SuperMiddleweightCallum SMITHCallum Smith (9-0) W KO 5 Ruben Acosta (27-9-5)Sheffield, England October 26, 2013Smith won the vacant WBC International title in Sheffield and must have felt he was working overtime after six first round victories in a row. Acosta had only lost inside the distance twice before to Anthony Mundine and in a WBO title challenge against Robert Stieglitz. Smith controlled the fight with a strong jab pressurising Acosta and looking for an opening to end the fight early. Acosta absorbed good shots but proved elusive. It was the sixth round before Smith found the punch to end the contest. A left hook to the body put Acosta down. The Argentinian got to his feet but after a few more choice shots from Smith another body punch put Acosta down again for the KO. It was 1 min. 20 secs in round six.The 23-year-old 63 (191cm) Smith won the vacant WBC International title.
After recovering from a hand injury, Callum is now ready to make his first title defence. The fight should be taking place in Liverpool next March 15. More to come.

KOsWBC #11 contender
Jorge S Heiland W KO 12 Billi Godoy to become the new WBC International champion.
Estadio Ruca Che, Neuquen, Neuquen, ArgentinaNovember 29, 2013
Heiland wins dramatic fight which sees both fighters on the floor.Godoy took an early lead as Heiland made his usual slow start. Godoy was working well with the jab and floored Heiland in the third. Southpaw Heiland started rolling in the fifth and sixth scoring well with hard lefts. In the seventh a right cross from Heiland had Godoy down, Godoy was badly shaken and only just survived the round. Heiland had the upper hand in the eighth and ninth, but Godoy battled back to take the tenth making good use of his jab. After an even eleventh , both fighters came out firing for the last knowing that the fight was in the balance. Heiland ended it with a tremendous left cross which sent Godoy to the canvas. The defending champion made it to his feet but was still shaken and the referee completed the ten count. Huge win for the 26-year-old El Gaucho de Pigue as he rebounds from a loss to Mateo Veron in June. The former WBC Interim title challenger (he lost on points to Sebastian Zbik in 2010) wins the WBC International title and rejuvenates his career. Former champion Billi The Kid , 27, is still national champion, but dropped down from his previous No 5 place to 17.
