St. Petersburg, FL – Dhafir “No Fear” Smith (24-19, 4 KO) a Super Middleweight and huge underdog coming into ruff territory at the Jannus Landings in front of 1,100 in attendance to battle it out with the home favorite Jeff Lacy (25-4, 17 KO) “The Day I Rise” card in Association with Fight Night Productions and Left Hook Promotions, Make no mistake Lacy’s performance was more related to “The Day I Fell”.
This fight was clearly fought one sided, have to give the Philadelphia native Smith lots of credit for sticking with his game plan and executing it almost in every round that I saw clearly taking the unanimous decision victory.
Smith started off pretty much as he finished the fight by establishing a very stiff jab that kept Lacy at bay throughout the fight, Lacy fighting very off balance it just wasn’t his night trying to get inside of Smith he kept lunging in very off balance shots were not landing flush. Smith not taking Lacy lightly used angles landed nice power hooks to Lacy’s face and moved his feet all night long.
Lacy had no protection he continued to get hit at will every time his chin was just right there he was not tucking it at all, Smith just looked fresh throughout the fight as he continued to breakdown Lacy as he continued to grab and hold Smith pretty much nothing Lacy tried worked.
I saw two rounds the 2nd and the 10th were Lacy may have pulled off on a slight percentage of shots, He ripped to the body well in those rounds and may have finished ok, he clearly needed a knock out to win the fight and just could not pick up the pace, Smith wins the UBO Super middleweight title belt on judges score cards 118-110,117-111 and 116-112.
