Liam Smith wins, David Price gets odd DQ win

Liam Smith's first fight as a Matchroom boxer was a resounding success, stopping Sam Eggington in the first half of their bout. He had already bit me earlier in the fight and was looking for a way out. It wasn't too long ago that Eggington's career was on the upswing. "The Savage" seems to know no other way of fighting, whether on top or in adversity, Eggington wants to swing, wants to fight, but Smith was too much.

"When I sparred him I was not as good as I am now". He is just 3-2 in his past five fights. "I've done a lot - and I mean a lot - of sparring with Sam".

"It was the worst camp I've ever had with niggles and injuries".

"I don't feel that [Munguia's] a top fighter - he can punch fairly hard for a young kid, but he is still very green and that's what frustrated me a little bit", Smith told Sporting News about his loss previous year.

Liam Smith would welcome a possible rematch against Jaime Munguia, who defeated him via unanimous decision last July. It's a big fight domestically and one that everyone would look forward to. Anthony unleashed a barrage of punches in the 9th that clearly affected Fitzgerald as Scott threw very little for the rest of the round. "There's not many things lower". However, the drama elevated even further in the final round when Fowler was put down by a left hook from Fitzgerald, who just about managed to survive to hear the final bell! The final scorecards were, 96-94 for Fowler and 95-94 (x2) for Fitzgerald. At 154, I can get to Kell and cause him problems. "I don't like the kid, but he was the better man tonight".

The subtext of the article is effectively saying "we're doing things to fix this - we promise". And finally, his fourth idea is around data portability.

All that being said, Smith (26-2-1, 14 KOs) knows that he can't overlook a risky fighter in Eggington (24-5, 15 KOs), who's a boxer that likes to come forward, while constantly applying pressure.

"It's a disappointing way to win". He was in the fight and lost his head, but I hurt him to the body... "So, I felt it was the right time to make the move". I'm in no position to be turning down fights like this after what happened.

Smith lost the WBO world super welterweight title by knockout to Saul "Canelo" Alvarez in a third defence in September 2016, and there were also two hard wins over British rival Liam Williams - Smith was trailing in the first fight before Williams was stopped on a cut by his corner - before a unanimous points decision defeat to Canelo's fellow Mexican Munguia in his past fight. He was like a pitbull... "The bookies have me down as a huge underdog and that suits me just fine. I honestly don't believe anyone can beat me domestically". Glover, who impressed in his last outing with a stoppage victory over Simon Vallily, hit the canvas twice en route to a second-round stoppage loss, shifting his pro record now to 9-2 (8KOs).

Liverpudlian lightweight Natashas Jonas (7-1) won all six-rounds against Tanzanian Feriche Mashauri (7-2).
