Great win for Smith who will be looking at either British or possible world title shot in due course.

Upset of the night was Belfast based Kenya Moses Matovu beating Cruiserweight prospect Irvin Pascal on points 40-37 great win for Matovu who had only won 2 of 15 contests, but it was his night and he just kept coming forward swinging and did the better work with hard shots throughout.
