Billam-Smith vs Masternak: preview

Chris "The Gentleman" Billam-Smith is back in his hometown, where he claimed a huge upset to bag the WBO cruiserweight title in May. His meeting with the prolific and formidable hardman Mateusz Masternak at the Bournemouth International Centre on Sunday will see the local lad put the biggest title he’s ever held on the line for the first time. 

Billam-Smith, who has been trained by Barry and Shane McGuigan since the start of his professional career, claimed the belt by knocking down the then-champion Lawrence Okolie three times in a scrappy bout. He’s now hoping to set up a unification bout with Jai Opetaia, the Australian cruiserweight who holds the IBF title.

The 33-year-old’s 18-1 record is an impressive one that includes 12 KOs, but it pales in comparison to that of Masternak. The Polish veteran has scored 31 KOs – nearly twice the number of professional fights Billam-Smith has had – and has a 47-5 overall record. 

He lost to Tony Bellew back in 2015, but insists that he’s a much better boxer than he was back then. The 36-year-old is on a run of six consecutive victories and has been described by Billam-Smith as "one hard bloke" and "a good all-rounder", though this will be his first fight in 14 months.

It’s also his last realistic shot at the title, so read on as we explain how to watch a Billam-Smith vs Masternak live stream from anywhere.
