    was not an early stoppage. He was not fighting back. Had no leg at all. Even when ref waved it off he had no clue fight was over.

    abysmal result against such a small, old, unexceptional fighter. sure it came out of nowhere, Smith wasn't controlling the fight at any point, but it really doesn't look great.

    You need to watch some of Eubank Snr's fights. Or something with Froch.

    You did not predict an ending like that so relax. You thought it would be a SD robbery.

    to be fair to Eubank he has done pretty well considering we always knew his ceiling wasn't really at world championship level.

    This is what happens when you bring in a trainer who trains you to fight "his" way. And "his" was wasn't proper for Eubank Jr. Eubank never was a flashy, keep the lead hand low, pop shot kinda guy in the past. He was aggressive. IMO, Roy just ruined Chris with his camp leading up to tonight

    Seems like all the pre-fight talk really fired Smith up, he was zoned in from the get go and was walking Eubank down.
    The way he put those punches together for the first knockdown was beautiful too

    Well to be honest, Smith and Eubank are the kind of C level Middleweight cans that Golovkin made a whole career on.

    Credit to Eubank for showing humility at the end and Smith for embracing his foe. Nothing like this sport in the world is there?

    There is a rematch clause.

    Good stoppage.

    GGG and Canelo would Kill Eubank.

    It's very obvious to everybody that nobody can fight like roy jones because in order to fight like roy jones you need superhuman reflexes and god level boxing IQ. Trying to mimic roy jones in the ring only has one possible end, sooner or later.

    I honestly dont know how people around CEJ have let him do what he has done.

    Eubank should have taken a 9 count and he might have had a chance of recovering, but not sure what he was doing in that corner. No defence at all.
