By Ryan Burton

BoxingScene.com was advised by junior middleweight contender Ishe Smith (22-5, 10KOs) that he has signed a promotional contract with Prize Fight Promotions. 

The former Contender series participant has been inactive since a second round stoppage of Alexander Pacheco Quiroz in November of 2010.  Smith's return takes place on March 29th in Corpus Christi, Texas at the America Bank Center.

"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.
