8-0 Smith Jr.

Alvarez needs a knockout or several knockdowns. Smith Jr. fighting a brilliant fight. Using his size and strength. Really putting it together in this fight. He's a big guy, strong, powerful puncher.

Great stuff. Smith Jr. is looking lethal here. Been looking lost for such a long time. Finally looking like what he should look like. He's a big guy, strong chin, powerful puncher, easily showed he's the strongest puncher in the division. Needs to do more of that! Rough up these smaller guys. Bully them!

Yeah, if you go toe-to-toe with Joe Smith Jr., you'll lose. That dude's power is no fucking joke. Might as well put a loaded gun to your dome.

I like Smith because he hails from where I live (Long Island) and I know people who know him... but I NEVER thought he could pull off a win over someone the caliber of Alvarez. Mad props to him!

The working man's champion (literally)...

Any chance he might just become champion if the other bout can't be made with COVID/Visa problems.
I'd love if he could. Has a great story, and he'd be an amazing champion. Beterbiev is fucking ridiculously good, but I'd love to see who can outmuscle who if they fight. Both strong guys and very hard punchers.

Smith now has KO wins over Fonfara, Alvarez, and Hart and the only stoppage of Hopkins' career - not a bad resume.

I see Beterbiev as the no 1 - but how I see it after tonight.

Beterbiev probably breaks down Bivol to the body and overpowers him late on. Not a million miles away from Gvozdyk, imo.

Bivol outboxed Smith Jr.

Smith Jr could hit Beterbiev and ice him. Johnson did catch him flush and hurt him. Still fancy Beterbiev, but styles make fights.

Exactly! Even though I think Beterbiev is the best the division has to offer currently and I'd easily have him a huge favorite, the styles mesh so well for Joe Smith Jr. It'd be a fun ass fight while it last. A huge nail-biter too. Looking at the landscape, only path to a championship for Smith Jr. because he's not beating Bivol.

I honestly wouldn't mind seeing Kovalev/Smith Jr. for the belt Canelo will likely drop. I'd love to see Smith Jr. with a belt around his waist.
