It seemed that whatever Liam Smith threw at Sam Eggington, Liam Smith landed on Sam Eggington.
Both fighters are known for their huge hearts and toughness but in the end Smith (27-2-1,15KO) had the skill set that’s simply levels ahead of Eggington (24-6-0,15KO) as he collected the win Saturday in Liverpool. Referee Bob Williams stopped the bout in round 5 at the 2:00 mark.
With the win Smith wins the WBC Silver Super Welterweight title. Smith’s trainer Joe Gallagher said that Sergio Garcia would be on his radar next for Liam Smith to continue climbing towards another World Title opportunity.
