    Looked and obviously weighed in smaller at the weigh in. I'm going for a Smith KO, rounds 6-9.

    There’s just something about the Smith clan that puts me off them; great achievement as a family to do the things they’ve done, but I’m happy enough seeing them one at a time - spare us the team. Same for the growing Fury hanger-on clan, most of whom are as relevant to anything as Dean “Whyte”.

    Smith is decent, can win this, but points or a very late stoppage at best. All his bragging about “levels” before boxing Fowler last year will be tested though.

    To be completely accurate, it's actually "Dean" "Whyte".

    Always loved Beefy my favourite out of the bros. Think he'll grind vargas down and will put something in place as soon as he gets a whiff that vargas is slowing down.

    He's going to do exactly what he did to Sam Eggington, the last Welterweight who didn't belong at LMW.

    Liam Smith is very under rated. Picking him by late TKO.

    Smith will stop him I reckon. Vargas is tough though so will probably be late.

    Liam is one of the most underrated fighters in world boxing. Solid fighter in all departments. Only guys I'd make favourite over Smith at 154 is Castano and Tszyu, I think he beats everyone else.

    Could only see Vargas winning by robbery, this is gonna be Smith by late KO or points.

    Vargas has the class and Smith the heart .
    Can feel a great clash of styles which will prove to be a great fight before the main event
