Ishe Smith was trading words with Erislandy Lara the last few months and finally it materialized. A fight between both Jr Middleweights that was set for May 2nd. Then just recently after Canelo Alvarez beat Alfredo Angulo, Goldenboy went to work to pit Lara vs Canelo together. This weekend they were able to get the deal done and now Ishe Smith is out of the picture.
Now Ishe is looking for a suitable opponent for May 2nd because he still wants to keep that date. Gabriel Rosado responded to the challenge. However Gab posted on his twitter account that Ishe Smith has turned him down. Gab is as tough as they come so I can see why Ishe turned it down. We hope Ishe finds someone we actually want to see him against.
