Andrzej Fonfara vs. Joe Smith Jr. Saturday

Saturday night, 8:30 PM on NBC, light heavyweight contender Andrzej Fonfara (28-3 16ko) makes his ring return against Joe Smith Jr. (21-1 17ko).
Fonfara needs to win in impressive fashion to try and secure a shot against one of thw titlists.  For Smith, this is his first big chance to get his name moved up in the rankings, as Fonfara is currently ranked 4th by boxrec.  The fight has the makings of an all action affair for as long as it lasts.  Smith Jr. doesn’t have anybody on his resume on the level that Fonfara is at, so this will be a true test to see if he belongs in with the contenders. With a win for Fonfara, he could see himself in a position to redeem his unanimous decision loss against WBC champion Adonis Stevenson.
