I'm not knocking Paul Smith by any means
But it takes a lot more than a big punch.
The Aussies have a fighter Victor Oganov who would no doubt punch harder than Paul.
He is pretty much regarded as the hardest punching S/Middle in the business.
26 fights for 26 Ko's until the first time he stepped it up and had his ass handed to him on a plate.
