CHICAGO, June 18, 2016 — He was a crude banger whose record was built on nobodies, in nothing towns, and across the ring was the established king — a future hall of famer — who’d battered and nearly knocked out Muhammad Ali nearly two years earlier. However, this didn’t stop a young George Foreman from bludgeoning Joe Frazier into submission that night in Kingston, Jamaica in January 1973.

Fast forward to tonight at the UIC Pavilion. Although Joe Smith, Jr. was a well decorated amateur (he won the 2008 New York Golden Gloves with a victory over Seanie Monaghan) he is no George Foreman (who won the Gold Medal at the 1968 Olympics as an amateur), but he’s a heavy handed slugger with a record of 21-1 with 17 knockouts against second rate opposition. Tonight, he’s facing Andrzej Fonfara, an established contender who dropped and went the distance in losing a decision for Adonis Stevenson’s WBC title in May 2014 and stopped the former WBC Middleweight champion Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. in April 2015. This should be a no-brainer.

Only it’s not. (continue reading…)
