Good fight!
You could tell both guys wanted to win as much as each other, it was just a matter of the more talented, skilled boxer doing what he had to to win the fight.
Laurence Cole was out of order to take a point from Smith in my opinion, Smith is primarily a fighter, who has learned to box, not a guy who could always box, but had to prove he could fight, and with that, he is always going to break the odd rule or two, in reality, in combat sports, the rulebook isn't always that significant, it wasn't the cleanest fight in there, but I don't think either guy committed punishable fouls, or a high enough amount of fouls for the referee to take action.
