Liverpool’s Stephen Smith put up a gallant effort in his second world title tilt against champion Jason Sosa for his WBA super-featherweight title in what turned out to be one of the fights of the year in Monte Carlo on Saturday.

Smith, 31, after a difficult start got himself into the fight and took it to the champion but in the end just fell short as he was floored and cut badly in a fight that will be remembered for a long-time.

Sosa who claimed the victory, winning by scores of 117-110, 116-111 and 116-112.

“I tried my best getting into the fight, but I think I lost it early. I was forcing things and that’s not me. I believe I’ve got a lot left and I’ve got to regroup.” said Smith
