BOURNEMOUTH boxing sensation Chris Billam-Smith wants a trip to Las Vegas for a unification bout with Gilberto Ramirez after defending his world title once again.

World champion Billam-Smith retained his WBO cruiserweight title whilst enacting revenge over Richard Riakporhe at Selhurst Park on Saturday, the Gentleman a convincing winner via unanimous decision.

Immediately after the fight, Billam-Smith’s attention turned to his next challenge, with the 33-year-old eyeing up a stateside fight.

Two potential names have already been mentioned by Billam-Smith’s camp, Mexican Ramirez who holds the WBA belt, whilst Aussie Jai Opetaia regained his IBF title last month.

Speaking about fighting Ramirez, Billam-Smith told Sky Sports: "I'd be really honoured.

"It would be crazy to make more memories out there.

"I want to fight in America. Every Brit's dream is obviously to fight in their home football team's stadium and then go to America. Ricky Hatton had it.

"'Zurdo Ramirez is the WBA champion. I would love that belt, that's the one George Groves won.

“I would love to fight him out there, he fights out there so that makes it a possibility."

Billam-Smith’s trainer Shane McGuigan concurs, also telling Sky Sports: "I would love the Ramirez fight.

"I would love (Jai) Opetaia to win the WBC (title) and then unify the titles.

"Next summer, that would be a fantastic fight. We've matched him extremely well."
