Magomed Kurbanov UD

Prediction.

Smith didn't fight in 2020, Kurbanov had 3 fights, but Smith has fought at the higher level. Both are good body punchers, I think Smith more so, but Kurbanov is harder to hit to the body than Smith. Kurbanov is faster in hand and foot, his jab is better than Smith's in of itself, but Smith jabs with method, sets up his power shots. I think Kurbanov is a target for Smith's over hand right, he has a low left hand, uses the shoulder roll, but I think Smith will land that shot, it will be interesting to see how he takes Smith's power, and how he deals with the pressure of Smith, I don't think he can hurt Smith to the head, Smith will be consistent with his pressure, Kurbanov will have to fight off the back foot, he can delay Smith's pressure by being busy with his jab and setting up his combinations, but he'll struggle to get his shots off, with Smith using his own jab. Kurbanov will have to do damage to the body to back Smith up for a sustained period.

I think this will be a close fight, I wouldn't be surprised if Smith won, his pressure and ability to thrive off momentum, might be too much for Kurbanov, but I think Kurbanov's speed will be important, especially his foot speed, Smith will struggle to attack the body, so he'll struggle to slow the legs down, Kurbanov's defence will be good aside from being there for the over hand right, he'll throw combinations to head and body as Smith comes in, it will be close, but Kurbanov will get the better of the early rounds, and that will be the difference.

A close exciting fight. LOL at anyone saying Smith was robbed. Stop with your tears.

Good fight and what a 12th round. At the end it was just bombs away in a good old fashioned tear up. Close fight, could have gone either way. With Smith being the away fighter I don't think he can have many complaints. Ref did let Kurbanov get away with quite a bit of holding but that shit happens. Kurbanov was blowing out his arse in the championship rounds but Smith couldn't make him pay enough.

Also, where was the body work from Smith? He's usually such a good body puncher but seemed to be head hunting all night. He seemed to struggle to get in close at times. Kubanov to his credit walked him in to a few good shots.

The first half was very close, I thought Smith clearly won 7-9, and had taken over the fight in round 10, but Kurbanov hurt him at the end of the round, and had a great 11th, I think Smith did enough to win, but I think 7-5 either way is reasonable. I think Kurbanov was more prepared for Smith's style than vice verse, he caught him coming in, made adjustments with his feet, made Smith follow him and walk into shots, but he struggled with the pressure of Smith, and the jab battle swung in Smith's favour as the fight went on, but Kurbanov's counter punching was very important, and he hurt Smith a few times.
