    It only takes one punch, and Smih is not a featherfist.

    Remembering his pedigree, I'd say it is possible but unlikely he'll win but everyone thought AA would blast him out in a couple rounds, yet I had him winnig the first fight.

    It wasn't enough that Smith lost his past two fights, and was easily KOed by Groves. It wasn't enough that the fight is in Ward's home country and home town, and no doubt he'll have either his personal referee Jack Reiss or another California Boxing Commission referee to permit him to foul. But diva Ward also demanded the smaller Smith fight him at a catch weight of 172!

    If Ward wanted to test how he'd feel at a higher weight, he should have warmed up against a real light heavyweight at 175, someone not too dangerous (on Smith's level). Demanding a super middleweight go up four pounds to fight him is pathetic.

    I'd like to see how the contract was written. Catchweights are designed as a max as a rule. Smith as far as I know could have came in at 168 if he wanted to. He never had to make 172 but could not go over. As it turns out he did by close to 5 pounds. Unless he has been having serious issues making 168, I dont see how this benefits him so I think he must feel stronger. He's most likely going to get a fine and perhaps its his final fight so he wanted to take his best shot. Nice to see Ward get a bad card dealt. Its a non issue since Ward said he was thinking on going to 75 right after the S6.
    No, he just hasnt trained. Hes here for a pension. Take a look at the weigh in photos. He looks like a white collar boxer. Not someone in the biggest opportunity of his life against one of the best boxers in the world.

    Ill be surprised if it goes past 2. Smith clearly has no ambition here judging by his shape and weight.

    It doesn't make any sense. Smith has already been fined a quarter of his purse and possibly more to come. With deductions he'll end up fighting for nowt. Some pension.

    I won't. Ward does not have concussive knockout power. He'll probably be too bothered it it doesn't come, Andre needs rounds. No convinced Smith has no ambition, I think he thinks more weight behind his punches give him a better chance of a KO.

    Was listening to an interview with Joe Gallagher where he said - "it gives me a chance to pit my wits against Virgil Hunter"

    So the gameplan was to not train. Brilliant.

    Smith doesn't look happy, seriously looks like he doesn't want to be there and now the situation is worse because he's lost a slice of his purse.
    100-1 for Smith in any round at a few bookies 😉

    Andre Ward branded Paul Smith 'unprofessional' after the British fighter weighed in 4.4lbs over the 172-pound catchweight limit for their Saturday showdown in California.

    Smith came in at 176.6lbs with American Ward at 171.8. The two teams, after hours in talks, have come up with a new, as yet unknown weight limit, which both men must make at another weigh-in later today. Smith will also have to pay a fine for not making 172lbs.

    For his last fight, against WBO super-middleweight champion Arthur Abraham, Smith weighed 165.5lbs.

    Of the three big fights this weekend (Porter/Broner, Lemieux/N'Dam, and Ward/Smith), this is the least exciting. I'm mostly looking forward to seeing the production by Roc Nation. It's a silly opponent for Ward even in a comeback, especially when his last fight was against Rodriguez.

    Smith has been eating like a king out there clearly! It's not as if he is bigger because it's all muscle, he looks flabby and fleshy.
