    You’re listening to them too much I think. Not much hurtful stuff is landing properly . Fair skinned Smith’s face suggests it’s far from a beating

    It’s not as bad a beating as they’re making out, but Smith has looked scared and timid all night, that’s why I would pull him out. When someone looks like they don’t want to be in there then call it a day.

    Smith holding and looking up at the clock in the 12th says it all really.

    Every round to canelo.
    Tremendous chin showed by smith but that’s about it.
    Smith Looking up at the clock in the last round constantly- lost heart

    Well done to Canelo. He won but it wasnt one sided as DAZN say. I think Smith won 3 or 4 rounds.

    What a let down. He had no pop from minute one. That’s nothing to do with Canelo’s work, it’s to do with Smith physically.

    Fair play to Canelo beat him very comfy. It wasn’t hard though.

    I think the 117-111 card was about spot on.

    Smith has a chin to be fair to him, ate some horrible uppercuts.

    His body will ache, did very well to see the final bell.

    Canelo will his low crouched hunched up forward movement throwing hooks reminded me of a prime Mike Tyson tonight. Difficult to see who beats him.

    Physicality aside Canelo is just a level or two above Smith in boxing ability. Smith did well to go the distance really. Some chin on the lad.

    Smith didn’t look like he wanted the job from the start. And his punches looked weak.

    In rounds and ring territory it was. Everyone has seen far worse beatings than that. Smith never looked likely to win so I see what you’re saying about that but I saw no reason to pull him out. Smith must have looked slightly hurt twice. How can that be a beating?

    Haha I soon forgot I was supporting Smith, I was just wanting him to win to shut them up.
