And bring the WBO super-middleweight belt back to the UK.

After getting a raw deal, scoring-wise, in his first fight against the WBO super-middleweight champion Arthur Abraham, Paul Smith?s date with destiny with regards to a re-match is drawing closer.

In two weeks, over in Berlin, the Liverpool fighter gets the opportunity to avenge his defeat, in which scores of 117-111, 119-109 and 117-111, didn?t really do his efforts justice.

Abraham is an experienced champion, with a record that reads 41-4 with 28 wins coming by way of knockout, but Smith is confident he can pull off a shock at the O2 World Arena, Kreuzberg, Berlin next Saturday and is predicting that this time around he will not leave anything to chance by knocking the champion out with Smith remarking to the media,

?I believe I can knock him out. I believe I?ve got the power to hurt anyone.

?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. I believe I did beat him last time. I 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.?

Brave words from Smith but reflecting on the raw deal, score-wise, he go in the first meeting, a knockout might be the only way to bring that WBO belt back to the United Kingdom.
