*** WATCH Smith Compared to Eggington LIVE on DAZN ***
Eggington has just lost out two of the last five fights, and is now coming into tonight’s competition having recently been dismissed in 2 rounds by Hassan Mwakinyo last September. Despite all that, Eddie Hearn still believes Eggington is a swell competition for Smith to headline . Hearn could possibly be proper. Eggington can be an all act fighter, who is catching the aging Smith from the back part of a challenging struggle against the powerful Munguia. The reason why Smith lost to Munguia was as a result of this fast pace that the Mexican fighter set. Eggington fights at precisely exactly the same manner Munguia does at throwing a lot of punches, and not letting his opponents rest. Eggington doesn’t posses the same size and power as Munguia of course, but he’s still more than a handful for a guy like Smith. If Smith can’t receive Eggington out from there first that the manner Mwakinyo failed, we might see an embarrassing tonight. If that happens, Smith will probably be siphoned away to get a rematch maybe not against Munguia, but in addition Eggington.
Smith wants to avenge his loss to Munguia in the worst manner, as he considers he has more ability than himand he feels he will correct the mistakes he made in that struggle by confronting the young 22-year-old golden-boy fighter at a rematch if at all possible. It’s to this point now where Smith is sounding obsessed with attempting to reverse losing to Munguia.
With Smith looking passed the Eggington struggle towards a rematch with Munguia that he badly wants, ” there ’s a chance he can eliminate tonight. Eggnington doesn’t have exactly the same mental baggage that he’therefore carrying around from their latest reductions to Hassan Mwakinyo along with Mohamed Mimoune. Eggington appears to have shrugged his shoulders after all those declines, and has proceeded on without return again. By comparison, Smith is obviously bothered by his own lack of Munguia. He doesn’t appear to appreciate that he simply didn’t have the childhood or the punch immunity to take the withering fire from the young Munguia. He simply didn’t exude the the youth and capacity to take the heavy shots to the human body that he kept getting hit with the entire struggle without disappearing from the ramifications of the blows. Munguia is actually really a significant puncher. Unless you’t obtained firstclass power of a talent such as Jarrett Hurd or even Jermell Charlo that you can throw back at him to discourage his attacks, you’re going to end up losing how Smith did.
Smith didn’t require his loss to Saul Canelo Alvarez nearly as hard as he’s his defeat as a result of the young Munguia. Perhaps it’therefore the age of Munguia which is bugging Smith therefore much. He dropped into a guy that’s only barely old enough to drink alcohol, and it was a struggle that he had could have won had come in the competition with a leading engine.
“I’ll be frank straight up, I could ’t receive the Jaime Munguia loss outside my system no matter how hard I try,” said Smith to skysports.com in talking about his loss to Munguia out of his last struggle. He won fair and square but going in to the struggle …Irsquo;d fought Liam Williams the preceding November and then I had to wait around for nine months for the struggle with Munguia. He was fighting quite regularly and that I think that extra bit of preparation gave him a major advantage,” Smith said in trying to sound right from his loss to Munguia, and coming up with some ideas for what went wrong.
If Smith, #13 WBO, had additional choices to get a domain at 154, he could pursue one of those other champions in the division. Nevertheless, the other winners in junior middleweight, Jarrett Hurd [IBF/WBA] and Tony Harrison [WBC] are arguably much better listeners compared to Munguia, and would be much rougher guys for Smith to test and dethrone. As such, Smith is wholly fixated on Munguia, replaying losing in his head, and believing what could have been what could possibly be from the foreseeable future if he makes alterations in his match.
It seems like Smith isn’t eager to admit that he lost to the better individual from the Munguia on the night. The struggle was competitive from the first five rounds, but when the heavy handed Munguia started hitting Smith at the break basket together with power shots with both hands, he ran out of gas fast and required punishment. Smith hit on the deck in the sixth round after taking a hard body taken from Munguia. From that point on, Smith proceeded on hasty retreat that looked as though he was chased out of sorts. Watching Smith retreat around the ring at the second half the competition together with Munguia, it reminded this writer of the old car breaking apart with bits of this machine falling onto the roadway since it worked a steep hill. Smith had imagining left in the last half of the struggle, and he was battered by the young Munguia. When there’s way that Smith could improve enough to beat Munguia at a rematch, he’will need to show that he has the conditioning necessary for him to manage the fast pace which the Mexican ability likes to struggle at. Smith will need to manage the human body shots which the massive 5’1 1 ” Munguia is going to likely soon be hitting against with the entire struggle, because he’therefore are going in order to obstruct them. Munguia will his manner though the protector of Smith, and then he ’ll induce him to take those shots.
Smith’two grueling wars together with Liam Williams, in addition to his lack of Canelo Alvarez took out a lot of him. Moving in the Munguia struggle, this wasn’t exactly the exact same Smith that had defeated John Thompson, ‘Jimmy’ Kilrain Kelly and Predrag Radosevic in sequential conflicts. Smith was at his best at those struggles, as he dominated guys which were plainly a level underneath him at the gift section. Unfortunately for Smith, he couldn’t handle the fast pace that he’d used as his game plan to beat Canelo. The game plan was an exceptional one by Smith, but he didn’t have the engine to execute the master plan, and he ended up getting hammered by Smith from the fifth round before bitter result from the ninth.
A better struggle for Smith than him waiting on a rematch with Munguia, which might not ever come about, would be a struggle against fellow Matchroom Boxing stable fighter Kell Brook. Promoter Eddie Hearn has talked about needing to put both together. However, Brook continues to be awaiting the Amir Khan fight, therefore he’s going to wish to take a potentially risky contest against Liam until he faces him. Brook will probably take soft fights for provided that he has to therefore that he doesn’t get beaten again until he gets the Khan fight. However, once those two face eachother at a year or two, Smith will likely have his chance to fight Brook.
“I want to be looking at a enormous struggle against one of those world winners or perhaps a massive domestic struggle with Kell Brook,” Smith said.
