Kermit Cintron Decisions Antwone Smith Over Ten

By Chris LaBate

Ameristar Casino in Saint Charles, Missouri - In a crossroads fight, a closley pitched fight saw former welterweight champion Kermit Cintron (33-4-1, 28KOs) bounce back from last month's loss to Carlos Molina with a ten round unanimous decision win over Antwone Smith (20-3-1, 12KOs). The scores were 98-92, 97-93 and 96-94.

It was inside fight for nearly the entire way and the action was close. Both boxers were throwing a lot of punches. The volume of power punches was nearly even between the two boxers, with Cintron landing the harder blows, but his face took most of the damage with a bloody nose and a cut around the left eye was opened up in the tenth and final round.

Lightweight prospect Dannie Williams (19-1, 15KOs) knocked out Antonio Cervantes (16-6) in the fourth round. Cervantes went down in the first, but Williams landed a huge right hand that sent him down on his back in the fourth. He was out and referee Steve Smoger waved it off.

Cintron looked awful....If Smith could punch he would've KO'd Cintron.
