Long Island KO artist light heavyweight Joe “The Irish Bomber” Smith Jr. continues his knockout return in the main event of a New Legend and Old World Boxing this Saturday April 21st at the Cordon Bleu located at 96-01 Jamaica Avenue, Woodhaven, NY.
Twenty one year old Joe Smith Jr. a two time New York Gold Glove winner turned pro October 2009 winning his first six by stoppage. Smith’s KO run came to an abrupt stop August 2010 when after controlling the opening three and half minutes of his seventh pro fight at Aviator Sports complex in Brooklyn “The Irish Bomber” suffered what was later diagnosed with multiple fractures in his jaw when he was clipped with a clean hook from the heavy handed Eddie “Thunder” Caminero. The rough and ready Smith battled on finally succumbing to the pain in a clinch with two seconds to go in the fourth round many ringside had Smith ahead or even at the time of the stoppage.
Smith underwent surgery immediately after the fight leading to an extended period out of the gym and on a liquid diet. After all the appropriate medical testing “The Irish Bomber” originally returned to action and his heavy handed ways this past July stopping Santos Martinez with a ripping body shot.
