Jason Sosa became the world champion earlier this year after stopping Javier Fortuna in the 11th round of a fight he was losing on the scorecards. Before that, he was extremely fortunate to walk away with a Draw against Nicholas Walters, although he did fight hard and stood up to the "Axeman's" power.
Stephen Smith is known as a brawler and 14 of his 24 wins have come via stoppage. So, this could end up being a very entertaining bout, indeed. Of the two fighters, Sosa should be considered the heavier puncher as he dealt Fortuna his first KO, while most of Smith's stoppages have come at the domestic level.
Smith's best chance in this fight is to box and avoid the power punches of Sosa. The problem is that Smith has fought a toe-to-toe style throughout his career and has a habit of trading with his opponents.
