Callum Smith’s World Boxing Super Series semi-final against Juergen Braehmer will be held in Nuremberg on February 24.

The Liverpudlian super-middleweight must travel to Braehmer’s home country as he attempts to set up a final with the winner of all the British battle between George Groves and Chris Eubank Jr on February 17.

Smith’s trainer Joe Gallagher had called for a neutral venue, but the unbeaten 27-year-old insists he is not concerned about travelling to the backyard of his German opponent.

I am the better man, the younger, fresher man, and I believe I will do what needs to be done to get to the final.

“I believe I will beat Jurgen Braehmer anywhere in the world and it is a nice away trip for my fans,” said Smith.

“I am the better man, the younger, fresher man, and I believe I will do what needs to be done to get to the final.”

Smith reached the last four with a unanimous decision win over Erik Skoglund in September, while Braehmer also triumphed on points against Rob Brant in October to book his place in the semis.
