another robbery


i had it 118-110

It went down almost exactly like i expected, the only difference was Smith dominated what i thought would be a closer fight.

It's boxing, this is the way it goes

Yeah I agree. That Smith won that fight but also, and more importantly, he was NEVER gonna get a decision in Russia versus the Russian home town favourite!!!!


It was a pretty good, close fight. Smith needed to win every round with a couple knockdowns to get the decision.
