The event started at 7pm (UK time) and is taking place at the Arena Nürnberger Versicherung as part of the World Boxing Super Series.
The super middleweight semi-final WBC Diamond belt fight will sure to be a massive blockbuster night, with the winner set to face George Groves, who last weekend triumphed over Chris Eubank Jr.
Smith is highly fancied for the fight, with the 27-year-old in fine form in his recent bouts, but he will face tough opposition from his 34-year-old challenger, a last minute replacement after former WBO light heavyweight champion Juergen Braehmer pulled out of the fight due to injury.
With both fighters having laid waste to previous rivals in spectacular fashion, the fight is guaranteed to be explosive.
