Lonnie Smith Returns to Fridayâ€™s Solo Boxeo
- Updated: July 27, 2011
Streaking super-featherweight Lonnie Smith (13-2-2, 9 KO) is back in action this Friday night (July 29th) at Vegasâ€™ 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 Telefutraâ€™s Solo Boxeo series, and will mark Smithâ€™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.
â€œThe ultimate goal is to be champion,â€ said Smith. â€œAnd I train like one, so that is the next step.â€
After appearing on several of their shows, Letâ€™s Get It On Promotions inked a long- term promotional agreement with Smith this year, and the promotions outfitâ€™s mouthpiece Tommy Lane plans to continue Smithâ€™s progress from a television attraction, to a genuine contender.
â€œThe win over Rodella on television was huge,â€ said Lane. â€œIt gave fight fans the opportunity to see what weâ€™ve seen all along. The response we received after that fight about Lonnie was incredible.â€
