Callum Smith wants to fight George Groves, according to his trainer.
Joe Gallagher says his man wants to take on the new European champion, sooner rather than later.
Smith fights Rafael Sosa Pintos (48-10 KO19) in Leeds on Saturday and says a win will move him right into the super-middleweight mix.
And that, says Gallagher, means Groves will be the target.
"Groves is firmly in Callum's sights and that is the fight we want," he told this week's Toe 2 Toe podcast.
"We'll be hot on his heels whatever route he takes."
