Lonnie Smith Returns to Friday’s Solo Boxeo

Streaking super-featherweight Lonnie Smith (13-2-2, 9 KO) is back in action this Friday night (July 29th) at Vegas’ South Point Hotel/Casino, where he will attempt to extend his unbeaten run to nine fights, against Californian Robert Vargas (5-1).

The six-rounder will feature on Telefutra’s Solo Boxeo series, and will mark Smith’s second consecutive televised fight. Smith enters the contest full of ambition, after earning a comfortable decision over David Rodella over the same distance back in April.

“The ultimate goal is to be champion,” said Smith. “And I train like one, so that is the next step.”

After appearing on several of their shows, Let’s Get It On Promotions inked a long- term promotional agreement with Smith this year, and the promotions outfit’s mouthpiece Tommy Lane plans to continue Smith’s progress from a television attraction, to a genuine contender.

“The win over Rodella on television was huge,” said Lane. “It gave fight fans the opportunity to see what we’ve seen all along. The response we received after that fight about Lonnie was incredible.”
