Liam Smith Sister
Liam Smith has two younger sisters, Chloe and Hollie. Chloe was born in 1994, and Hollie was born in 2000.
The professional boxer is 34, so the age gap between him and Hollie is around 11.
Chloe lives with her parents in Liverpool and is not into boxing despite being surrounded by boxers all around.
Hollie is the youngest in the Smith family and is loved by all. She was diagnosed with Autism when she was two years old.
Hollie needs special attention as she has the condition, and Smith is always there for his little sister.
