Jose Zepeda Eyes Fourth Shot at World Title with Dalton Smith Showdown

Jose Zepeda, fourth world title

Jose Zepeda is gearing up for a high-stakes showdown against undefeated super lightweight Dalton Smith this Saturday at the Utilita Arena. The three-time world title challenger is determined to secure a victory that could propel him towards his fourth opportunity at a world championship.

Acknowledging Smith’s unbeaten record and rising status in the UK boxing scene, Zepeda anticipates a tough battle but sees it as a crucial step in his quest for redemption. Coming off a recent defeat against Richardson Hitchins, Zepeda is adamant about facing top-tier opponents to reclaim his position among the division’s elite.

“If I don’t win this fight, most likely I’m probably going to retire,” Zepeda admitted. “So, I’m training my hardest to make sure I don’t retire. If I don’t win this fight, then that means there are no big fights for me afterwards. I’m planning on only being in big fights; so, I have to win this fight.”
