Smith, a welterweight phenom hailing from Queens, New York, and the 1997 New York Golden Gloves Champion, has a ring record of 17-0-1, including 10 wins by way of knockout. Nicknamed "The Mechanic," Smith trains at the legendary Gleason's Gym in Brooklyn. Smith scored a unanimous eight round decision against Darien Ford on April 22 in the Broadway Boxing premiere. Smith is ranked ninth by the WBA.
Top welterweight, Joshua Clottey (25-1, 18 KO's), who has reeled off five straight victories, will see action in the co-feature. He made his United States debut on November 21, 2003 in New York City, after fighting almost exclusively in his homeland and Great Britain. Clottey's only career setback was a controversial disqualification loss to Carlos Manuel Baldomir at Wembley Arena in London on November 29, 1999.
The monthly series featuring New York City fighters made its debut on April 22 at the Grand Ballroom at Manhattan Center. The show will be broadcast by HDNet in high definition and on Madison Square Garden Network, and throughout New England on standard cable. DiBella Entertainment is in discussions with regional sports networks to distribute the show nationally.
The cards will originate from venues in the five boroughs, the greater New York Metropolitan Tri-State area, and Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, Connecticut. Mohegan Sun is the series site sponsor. HBO, Everlast Worldwide, and Gallagher's Steak House are sponsors.
