"The One" Undercard Press Scores

Ishe Smith vs Carlos Molina - IBF 154lb Title

By Bobby Hunter

In a good old fashioned "Snoozer" Ishe Smith made the first defence of his IBF Light Middleweight strap against Carlos Molina but was then relieved of his title as the Mexican now living in Chicago outworked the champion on the way to a split decision. Smith who had collapsed in the ring in joy when winning the title in February started far to slowly as Molina basically punched far to often for the pensive champion. Molina was continually warned for leading with the head by Referee Jay Nady but never received a point deduction. Molina faded in the mid to late rounds but came back in the last two to rubber stamp his victory. The new champion was nearly robbed of his glory as judge Adalaide Byrd scored the fight for Smith. Thankfully the two other judges got this one right and awarded the victory to Molina. My card read 116-112 Molina.

The Judges scores were (Adalaide Byrd) 116-112 Smith, (Burt Clements) 117-111 Molina, (Barry Druxman) 116-112 Molina.
