KERMIT CINTRON DEFEATS ANTWONE SMITH IN 10
12 August 2011
Ameristar Casino, Saint Charles, Missouri, United States
Former IBF welterweight champion Kermit Cintron, 31 years-old from Puerto Rico, ended a two-fight losing streak by outpointing american Antwone Smith, 24 years-old.
“The Killer” Cintron defeated “The Truth” Smith by way of a ten round unanimous decision. Scores: 98-91 (Jackson Harper), 97-93 (Jerry Griffin) and 96-94 (Barbara Madison). Referee was Mike England.
It was a much needed win for Cintron, who reported a cut over right eye in 10th and finalround.
Cintron bettered his mark to 33-4-1 (28 KOs). Smith dipped to 20-3-1 (12 KOs).
On the undercard WBC #13 lightweight Dannie Williams, 19-1-0 (15 KOs), scored a spectacular fourth round KO over Antonio Cervantes, 16-6-5 (11 KOs). Williams slugged his way dropping Cervantes with a left hook in the 1st round and then leveled him with a right hand at the 1:05 mark of the 4th round.
In a clash of unbeaten welterweights, Keandre Gibson, 4-0-1 (2 KOs), won a six round unanimous decision over Lawrence Hughes, 4-1-0 (3 KOs). Gibson knocked down Hughes in rounds two and three, en route to a 59-53, 60-52, 60-51 verdict.
Cintron bounces back with victory but doesn't wow anyone
Kermit Cintron did what he had to do against Antwone Smith on the Friday Night Fights card in St. Charles, Mo. More or less.
Cintron, coming off a listless decision loss to Carlos Molina last month, won a unanimous decision – 98-92, 97-93 and 96-94 – in a 10-round junior middleweight fight to retain his status as a title contender and marketable fighter.
And he did it in a way that contrasted sharply with his fight against Molina – he let his hands go, throwing a healthy 1,143 punches, according to CompuBox.
