I can have that attitude to fighters of other nationalities, but in genral not to british fighter, unless your name is chisora.

But i know where you are coming from

I am not making any statements that are untrue to be fair.

But you are right, it is a love affair, i stalk him day and night

Let's have it right, Smith is a player on the british scene, but certainly not the world scene. He may get a shot at the wbo, and if he does then great. Will he lose? Posibly, but got great chance against stieglitz.

I don't make statements i don't think are true or not possible.

where have you heard me say he will unify the division etc? You have't.

As for Degale.

Once again, beeeehave

Paul Smith is more likely to get a worse slap off someone in liverpool city centre on a saturday night than he would off Degale

Yeah he is no.4 with the WBO but that doesnt mean he deserves to be. Salita was no.1 with the WBA and there were about 60 guys above him that shouldv'e been no.1.

I pisses me off when guys like Smith f*ck about at doemstic level for 30 fights fighting bums think they can just jump to world level because they are undefeated or in his case one defeat.

How long will it be before he fights some shagged out old Italian for A VACANT euro title??

Listen mate, it is very rare for that to be the fighters decision, who they fight etc. Paul has been patient, and is getting his shot. Maybe he doesn't deserve to be no 4, but he is. Let's see how he fares.

Smith needs to clear up dometically before going to the European scene let alone the world scene,

I like him and think he could pick up a belt one day and hope he does but timing is evrithing, its one thing winning a belt against a weak champ (which is the only way i see it hapening any tme soon) but its a lot tougher defending it against world class opposition.

He needs to take his time and not rush in to things

I agree with this. I would like to see him do it the traditional route, win lonsdale outright, then go euro, then world, as i believe by this time he will have developed enough to warrant challenges at world level (for the doubters, or those who think i kiss arse, i will point out that i am not saying he will win a world title, but he could work his way to that levle)but also he will have built enough big ocasion experiance and will deserve his shot in the eyes of those who think he does not deserve it.
Additionally, he hasn't fought anyone as yet to warrant a shot at the title, but fighting dodson is a good start. And if he gets a shot at wbo, then great.

I dunno what the fuss is about a lot of good fighters are given a title shot without a meaningful fight and come good. Who did alexander or Bradley fight to get there shots? Who did Gamboa fight for his shot?

Boxing is full of fighters that get something they don't deserve its what they do when they get it that counts.

People saying Degale would KO Smith I know Smith hasn't looked great recently but Degale must be a monster in sparring for you to say that.

Why shit on someones parade, it is a british boxer potentially on the world scene, why not big it up, even if some peeople aren't his greatest fan.
The biggest joke in recent years was el**** fighting abraham.
Smith actually would stand a good chance against steiglitz, whereas elo**** was out of his depth
smith has a lot to prove tho. especially after his comments when he won the british SMW belt. he pissed a lot of people off with those comments. i think he will get a shot next year!

Don't fool yourself, Berrio punches like a mule. Smith couldn't knock the skin off custard at this weight.

Stieglitz would hammer him IMO, as average as Stieglitz is he's better than Smith.
