    Tonight on ESPN's Co-Main Event we got 2 pretty popular local guys going at it. Antwone Smith 11-1 vs. Juan Camilo Novoa 13-1. ESPN has been putting on quite a few pretty uneven matches. It's not very often we see fighters taking a big risk like this so early in their career. I definitely can't wait for this fight. Antoine Smith was last televised on ESPN Wednesday Night Fights 05/07/08 and Juan Camilo Novoa was last televised on Telemundo 02/08/08. He also fought on the Gamboa-Edwards Under Card but I'm pretty sure it was a dark match.


    Novoa's the favorite but I'm hoping Antwone pulls off a KO. I think the Winner of this fight has a nice bright future ahead.


    Antwone Smith for the Win!

    He's down 20-18 pretty cleanly, and to boot, is getting hit in the gut whenever Novoa wants.

    Smith is starting to score and Novoa is getting mad.

    I want to give props to the ts for calling my attention to that Smith/Novoa fight. That was a fun little scrap.

    That was funny as hell.

    Definitely a great night of fights. ESPN delivered every time they came to South Florida. Miranda-Banks, then Gamboa-Edwards, then Juan Urango's nice KO, and now this one.


    We had a local card on May 30th that was just KOs galore! There's a bunch of up and comers from down here such as Antwone Smith, John Jackson, Angelo Santana, Joey Hernandez, etc.. They've had a couple Under Card TV appearances here and there but in a couple years from now these guys are gonna be all over HBO and Showtime.
