O'maison was down in the third, and then Smith dropped him two more times in the sixth round to secure the stoppage victory.
Smith (12-0, 10 KOs), one of the hottest prospects in world boxing, claimed his first pro title at Manchester Arena in May 2021 – dominating Lee Appleyard and forcing a punishing sixth-round stoppage to earn the vacant English Title.
O’maison (17-4-1, 7 KOs), a former English Super-Lightweight Champion, shared two close contests with Luton’s Kay Prospere in 2019, drawing the first and losing the second, before returning to winning ways with a points win over Serge Ambomo in May.
Derby super lightweight Sandy Ryan (4-1, 2 KOs) got revenge with a wide ten round unanimous decision in her rematch with former world champion Erica Anabella Farias (27-6, 10 KOs).
Ryan suffered her first defeat in the pros at the hands of Farias on the Leigh Wood vs. Michael Conlan undercard in March.
