  • Comments Thread For: Joe Smith Rallies, Edges Maxim Vlasov With Majority Decision, Wins WBO Title

    Joe Smith Jr. waited an additional eight weeks, putting his honeymoon on hold in order to realize his dream of winning a major title. It finally happened for the bruising light heavyweight, who walked through hell to outlast Maxim Vlasov en route to a 12-round majority decision win. Judge David Sutherland scored the contest 114-114, overruled by judges Pat Russell (115-113) and Gerald Ritter (115-112) who each scored the contest for Smith, who claimed the vacant WBO light heavyweight title Saturday evening on ESPN in front of a sold-out crowd at Osage Casino in Tulsa, Oklahoma.

    Joe Smith Jr., the small business owner and former union construction worker from Long Island, just wants to fight. Smith, who operates Team Smith Tree Service with his father, hopes to chop down Maxim Vlasov and win the vacant WBO light heavyweight world title Saturday evening at Osage Casino in Tulsa, Oklahoma (ESPN, ESPN Deportes & ESPN, 10 p.m. ET).

    Smith and Vlasov were scheduled for a pre-fight press conference once before, Feb. 11 in Las Vegas. Vlasov tested positive for COVID-19 that day, and their scheduled Feb. 13 fight was temporarily derailed. Vlasov recovered, went home to Russia, and then finished training camp in Las Vegas.
