Munguia’s performance wasn’t as impressive as his previous appearance on HBO, when he destroyed Sadam Ali in their 154-pound title bout in Verona, New York. The bigger, strong Munguia knocked down Ali four times on his way to a fourth-round technical knockout.

Smith, who is a former champion who has been a junior middleweight throughout his nine-year pro career and had only previously lost to Mexico's Canelo Alvarez said after the fight.
