"I am very happy to be promoted by Prize Fight promotions. They have given me a great opportunity.  I am forever grateful to them and their staff for believing in me," stated Smith.  "Fans will see that I have a lot left.  I have never been knocked down or out.  I'm looking to bringing PrizeFight a championship," Smith continued.
