Liam Smith vs Hassan Mwakinyo Prediction:
Liam Smith is a veteran of the sport. Having won the WBO light-middleweight title in the past, Smith has the experience of the big moment unlike his opponent of the night. The 34-year-old is 4-1 in his last five fights. His last fight was against Jessie Vargas, which he won by KO.
Hassan Mwakinyo may not have the experience of Smith, but he is in blistering form. He is coming into the fight on a 10-fight win streak. The 27-year-old Tanzanian is one of the hardest punchers in the division and is more than capable of putting the lights out of any boxer.
Prediction: Liam Smith via TKO
