“Is your plan to box from long range and walk him into a right hand? Do you want to push the tank backward, the guy that is always coming forward, backward, what’s the plan?” said Max Kellerman on Max on Boxing in talking to Joe Smith Jr about his plan for his fight tonight against Artur Beterbiev.


“I’m going to figure it out while I’m in there,” said Joe Smith Jr. “I have all kinds of plans in my head, but when I get in there, and I see what’s working, and I’m going to stick to it and get the job done.”


Is that what you tell the guys interviewing you on TV because you don’t want to give anything away, or is that the truth that you’re not sure how you’re going to fight him and that you have several different ways to go and you have to take his measure in the ring before you decide?” said Kellerman.


“A little of both. We have a plan, and we have a backup plan,” said Smith.


“A lot of times guys like Beterbiev, who constantly come forward against a guy that might fight him in several different ways, the guy that might give ground, who might move and does that too much and the pressure fighter starts to build momentum. How do you stop a guy from getting that momentum and that head of steam” Kellerman said.


Hey, I’m a big puncher too. I can stand my ground when I need to,” said Smith.


“Joe, you say you embrace the underdog label in this fight. Why do you embrace that?” said Kellerman.


“It’s motivation, and not only that, I work hard, and I don’t mind being called that,” said Smith Jr. “I’m just here to put on a great show for everybody and give the fans what they want to see.”


Strength of schedule can help Joe Smith in this fight,” said Tim Bradley. “You’ve got to understand the resistance that this man has gone through.


“You mentioned all those great fighters he’s faced. A lot of the time, he wasn’t supposed to come out on top, and he was able to come out on top. There’s no foregone conclusion that Beterbiev is going to win this fight. Trust me,” said Bradley.

BETERBIEV VS. SMITH JR. FIGHT CARD

Artur Beterbiev vs. Joe Smith Jr. for Beterbiev's WBC and IBF light heavyweight weight title, and Smith Jr.'s WBO title

Robeisy Ramirez vs. Abraham Nova; Featherweight

When Joe Smith Jr. narrowly defeated Maxim Vlasov in April 2021 to win the WBO light heavyweight title, a unification bout with WBC and IBF titleholder Artur Beterbiev instantly became a can't-miss matchup.

Two of the biggest punchers in boxing will meet on Saturday at New York's Hulu Theater at Madison Square Garden (10 p.m. ET on ESPN/ESPN+ with prelims on ESPN+ at 6:30 p.m. ET) in what shapes up as an explosive action fight for as long as it lasts. Beterbiev, boxing's only champion with a 100% KO percentage, is an 8-1 favorite, according to Caesars Sportsbook, and with good reason.

Beterbiev (17-0, 17 KOs), of Russia, is consistently on the cusp of the pound-for-pound list -- if not in the top 10. He is a precise puncher who knows just where and when to place his shots, and has the engine to carry that power into the later rounds.

Never was that more on display than against Oleksandr Gvozdyk in October 2019, a title unification Beterbiev won via 10th-round TKO after he floored his foe three times.

But Beterbiev is 37 and showed vulnerability when he was knocked down by Callum Johnson in a 2018 fight. And he's been inactive, competing only twice since he defeated Gvozdyk. And during that time, Smith (28-3, 22 KOs) has shown vast improvement.
