Keenan Smith wins his ShoBox debut

Last night, live on Showtime Boxing – Philly’s Keenan “Killa” Smith (9-0, 3 ko’s) showed that he is ready for the next level of Welterweight competition by winning an 8 round unanimous decision over a game Benjamin Whitaker (10-2, 2 ko’s) at the D Las Vegas.

Smith started the fight boxing from long-range, moving around the ring and landing some clean shots on his thicker opponent. Midway though the bout, Whitaker battled his way inside – and once he got close – things got physical. There was one stretch of action that included a back body drop, a reverse leg whip and an old-fashioned noogie.

The worst of it all was a 6th round clash of heads that caused a cut over Smith’s left eye. Smith responded properly by dropping “The Blaxican” with a right hook in the 7th.

The fight went to the scorecards, and though all rounds were competitive, the judges saw most of them in favor of the Philadelphia native. The official scores were 79-73 and 78-74 twice.

In a loss, Whitaker showed to be a good test and his stock is still in tact. Don’t be surprised if you see him taking on another undefeated fighter hovering around the 10 fight mark in the near future.

As for Smith, the D&D Management signee is tentatively scheduled for action in Parsippany, NJ in mid December.
