Sky Live: Smith hits Vegas

Stephen Smith makes his Las Vegas debut on a sizzling super-featherweight card at Mandalay Bay.

Smith is at that crossroads stage of his career where a loss would spell the end for him at world level. It’s so important he wins this fight, but it’s a tough task for him.

Francisco Vargas is a decent fighter with just the one loss on his record. He’s taller than Smith and loves to draw opponents into a dogfight, because he works so well on the inside.

Stephen knows at this stage of his career, it’s probably his last big chance, and doing it at the Mecca of boxing will bring the best out of him.

For Smith, how he wins this fight, he’s got to use his boxing brain. In the past we’ve seen that Smith likes to come forward, he likes to get into a fight as well, but that could be his undoing. He’s got to be intelligent, pick his shots well, and throw the straight shots through the middle. We know Vargas loves to come forward, but he also likes those wide shots and uppercuts on the inside.
