That match showed what happens when a stronger fighter knows what Soliman is coming in with. It is the same reason why I think Bika will beat Soliman in their rematch, he won't be surprised this time.
I still don't see how Smith, who don't belong at 168 in the first place, would beat Codrington or Bika though. I could even see Codrington KO'ing Smith depending on his chin.
I haven't seen the rematch but I want to because apparently Soliman got hurt up.
Soliman is awkward but a technically sound fighter who is smart will and should rip him a new one. He is however like an energizer bunny and thats a bitch.
I agree with what you are saying.
Codrington is a skinny runt and Smith would look to jump on him. Vera is pretty shit and a poor mans Paul Smith.
Bika is strong as fuck but hes a robot. If Calzaghe and Bute needed to use intelligence then Paul Smith sure as hell does.
