WBO Eliminator – Smith vs Williams review

Liam Smith vs Liam Williams 2 saw Smith defeat Williams by majority decision.

Both Smith and Williams looked very sharp throughout the fight. Smith used his very fast jab and landed multiple throughout the fight. Williams wasn’t dominated though, he landed flurries of punches as the fight progressed. The fight was pretty even but I did see Smith have a slight edge over Williams with him winning a few more rounds.

The fight was a WBO eliminator, Miguel Cotto currently holds the WBO strap but he said he is going to retire after his defence to Sadam Ali on December 2nd. With Smith being guaranteed; a shot at the title which he held before he lost it to Canelo, we could see him as world champion once again in 2018.
