    Good fight! Even Liam said before the fight he knew he needed a stoppage haha it was a good fight that could have gone either way 115-113 for Kurbanov seemed fair to me. But this guy REALLY needs to work on his “shoulder roll” if he plans to fight aerioua opposition i see a right hand stopagge coming his way from what i saw tonight

    I could definitely see 3-3 halfway through, but I thought there were 3 clear Smith rounds in there. I honestly wouldn't have argued a draw, I think if you push all the close rounds to Kurbanov there are 6 there, I just can't see more than that, which makes 117-112 ludicrous

    Indeed they would

    I think it’s just the fact that it’s so predictable which way the cards are going to go in certain places in competitive fights, even if it would be difficult to truly give the home fighter more rounds, like tonight, that’s what bothers me.

    The fact we can pretty much call it before a fight shows the sport has a problem.

    Not sure how you saw that, thought Smith was up 4-2 at the midway point

    Feel for Smith there. I thought he won that, but a close fight was always going to see Kurbanov getting it on the cards.

    Really good fight though.

    Let’s be honest, he was never getting the decision in a competitive fight

    it doesn’t matter where you go, always the same
