Liverpool’s Liam Smith has never competed against a world-class fighter in eight years as a professional and his leaky defense is a troubling sight.
Soro is a Frenchman who thrived at the European level and utterly destroyed Glen Tapia.
“Beefy” Smith instead fought John Jackson for the WBO trinket, an American who had never even trained for a 12-round fight. Smith flattened his opponent in Round 7 but not before eating a countless number of jabs.
The undefeated Englishman didn’t look anymore the defensive savant against Jimmy Kelly last December, continuing to fight down to the level of the stiffs promoter Fran Warren has put in front of him.
There’s one problem; Khan doesn’t fight in Smith’s division.
