Don't think Selby will be a FW much longer he's very big for the weight and must be working like a horse to get down, anyone saying diffrent doesn't understand making weight safely

Although Stephen Smith looked good against Buckland I don't think it would help him against Lee Selby, Buckland was tailor made for Stephen. Stephen has always been a good boxer and with Buckland coming forward with no real plan was exactly what he wanted it enabled him to use his best attributes his boxing skill, against Lee Selby he can't use those boxing skills because Lee will stand and box him using his advantages in height and reach to draw Stephen in to him and punish him the way he did the last time. There are other fights out there for both to carry on without a rematch.

Stephen was right though he got written off after one loss.

But me included thought that Buckland would be too big and strong at super feather and would walk him down and beat him up.

Hold ma hands up.......got this one wrong.

Simply saw Buckland breaking down Smith given his size and style.......add to the fact that Smith had a few comebacks at the newer weight and everything was low-key ish (if this makes sense)

He was supposedly drained etc and was clearly evident am hearing/reading.....fair dooz maybe......but canna take it away from Smith.

Still not watched it yet but saw the KO and its a thing of beauty.......proper tasty.

Don't remember many differing with regards to how the fight would pan out previous but yeah......


Selby Smith II ??

I see the 1st fight all over again with regards to styles though both hearing the final bell.

Could there be an argument for Smith getting sparked previously due to the weight etc also.....given he moved up after ?

Selby moving up into SF could be hellacious



Anyways.........be a good trader.

I rate Smith and his KO the other night was a beauty, but Selby is 1. a level above and 2. too big.
