Paul Smith believes he can knock out Arthur Abraham and finally become a world champion.
The Liverpool fighter travels to Germany for his second encounter with Abraham on February 21 forthe WBO super-middleweight title rematch.
Smith claims he should be the champion rather than challenger after losing a controversial decision to Abraham back in September and second time around, he tells Ringside, the judges won't be required.
"I believe I can knock him out. I believe I’ve got the power to hurt anyone," Smith said.
"I believe I won the fight. If you don’t think I won the fight, you must have had it a draw or you must have it for Abraham round-by-round.
"There were no nip-and-tuck rounds where nothing happened - the rounds he won, he stole, and the round I won, I out-worked him.
"I believe I did beat him last time, I just didn’t get the decision or the belt. This time I will get the decision and the belt or I’ll get a knockout. But I’ll be leaving Germany with a world title."
Back in September Smith lost a wide unanimous decision, with scores of 117-111, 119-109, 117-111,in the champions's favour.
The challenger labelled the decision as "robbery" but this time trainer Joe Gallagher also believes it will be a quiet night for the three ringside judges.
"The fight won’t go the distance, it will be a knock-out either way," he said. "Either Paul will knock Abraham out or Abraham will knock Paul out.
"It will be a right shoot-out for six or seven rounds. Abraham will come in like Mr. T out of Rocky, absolutely coming to put things right this time. Paul has to be fired up by that and that’s the way we can win."
