It’s been an explosive week of boxing with some high profile fights taking place in the US over the weekend. Bernard Hopkins was taking on Smith Jr in his 67th professional fight, the bout came just a month before his 52nd birthday.
Smith Jr made Hopkins look every bit of his 52 years, Smith’s dominate performance was underlined in the 8th round when a flurry of punches resulted in Hopkins being knocked out of the ring.
Hassan N’Dam N’Jikam, wont be a name familiar to many but his crushing knockout of #1 middleweight contender Alfonso Blanco will put him on the map. N’Dam didn’t waste anytime sending his opponet to the canvas with a punishing right hand shot, early in round 1. (31 secs)
The last of this week’s round up comes from Ireland’s own Jason Quigley. Fair enough it’s a TKO as opposed to a straight knock out but its still a joy to watch the Donegal man in action while cruising past another opponent. A world title is surely in his future.
