“The Polish Prince” Andrzej Fonfara (28-4, 16 KO’s) did not fare well at all against little known full time construction worker, Joe Smith Jr (20-1, 17 KO’s).  The fight did not go long, as Fonfara losses via first round knock out.  Smith’s power has been talked about, but no one expected the 14-1 underdog to actually pull out a victory, against the #5 ranked Light Heavyweight in the world.  Smith, looking to make a name for himself, and make boxing his full time job, sure did take the next step towards that tonight.

Fonfara looked in control from the opening bell, and perhaps underestimating his opponent, went in with a full head of steam.  Fonfara staggered Smith a bit half way through the first round, but got a little wild with his punches, and dropped his hands.  Smith took advantage, hitting Fonfara with a huge overhand right, and put him down.  Fonfara would get up, but he was on dream street.  Realizing this opportunity, Smith came right at him with a flurry, and put him down for good with a left hook/straight right combination.  Smith will surely be talked about for more big fights now, and hopefully realize his dream of being a well known prize fighter.
