A lovely left hook to the body in the sixth round helped Liam ‘Beefy’ Smith earn a seventh round stoppage in Mexico
Liam Smith kept himself on track for a world title shot after stopping Mario Alberto Lozano in seven rounds in Hermosillo, Mexico.
Smith handed the experienced Mexican only his second stoppage defeat in his 42-fight career after the referee stepped in to call a halt.
The former WBO super-welterweight champion, whose only two defeats were handed out by Lozano’s countrymen Jaime Munguia and Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez, began to step up the pressure in the third round.
