Liam Smith repeats victory over Liam Williams, majority points.
In a highly anticipated return match of an inconclusive cuts ending last April, former WBO light middleweight champion Liam Smith 26-1-1 (14 Ko's) scored a majority decision over tough Liam Williams 16-2-1 (11 Ko's) at the Metro Radio Arena in Newcastle last night. Williams got off to the better start with more accurate punching, but allowed the methodical former champion to out-hustle him through the middle rounds, many of the rounds were extremely close, with a possible case for either man being awarded the winner.. The tempo of the bout however was controlled by Smith and at the verdict no one complained... Scores were.. 116-112, 117-111 and a 114-114 draw.. Us at Mirageboxing scored it a 115-115 draw, with a lot of razor thin rounds..
Smith is now heading the queue to box for the WBO championship that will soon be vacated by Miguel Cotto..
