Chris Billam-Smith Inks a New Deal With Boxxer; Will face Mateusz Masternak on December 10th

Press Release:

An early Christmas cracker will be delivered to the Bournemouth beachfront on Sunday, December 10th as cruiserweight king Chris ‘The Gentleman’ Billam-Smith (18-1, 12 KO’s) makes the first defence of his WBO World Cruiserweight Championship.

Polish powerhouse Mateusz Masternak (47-5, 31 KO’s) – a former European  and IBF and WBA Intercontinental Cruiserweight Champion currently ranked #5 in the world by the WBO and #9 by the WBC – challenges Billam-Smith in a championship bout which headlines the BOXXER card taking place at the Bournemouth International Centre and airs live and exclusively on Sky Sports in the UK and Peacock in the United States.

Returning to the UK for the first time since his 2015 European championship war with Tony Bellew, Masternak rides a six-fight win streak into the bout. Three of those wins have come by KO, one of them a fourth-round stoppage of Albania’s Armend Xhoxhaj, who went five rounds with Billam-Smith last year.

Billam-Smith has signed new long-term agreement with BOXXER which includes obligation to rematch Lawrence Okolie in 2024 who he defeated in May for the WBO title. WBO mandatory challenger Richard Riakporhe could be apart the Billam-Smith's new deal. Riakporhe defeated Billam-Smith in 2019 by split decision.
