LONNIE SMITH WINS AGAIN – ADDED TO FALLON FIGHTS
July 31st, 2011, Las Vegas — Super-featherweight “El Negro Mexicano”, “Lightning” Lonnie Smith improves to 14-2-2, 10 KOs via a 3rd round TKO victory over the game Eduardo Arcos (16-4-1, 13 KOs) on Friday night at the South Point Hotel/Casino in Las Vegas.
Once again, the always exciting Smith, gave the fans in attendance and those watching on television, a non-stop, action fight. After a close first round where both fighters traded shots, “Lightning Lonnie” began to land a series of uppercuts. Those shots, along with a series of other combinations, and Lonnie’s overall pressure prevented Arcos from answering the 4th bell.
Smith, fighting in his hometown of Las Vegas, also displayed his popularity as the venue was filled with many of his fans. Lonnie is a rising star in the 130 lb division, and he continues to grow his local fan base. Just like the Magdaleno brothers (Diego and Jesse), Smith is a local who can put butts in seats in Sin City.
Up next for Smith is a six or eight round bout on this year’s “Rural Rumble” in Fallon, NV on August 27th. Smith dazzled fight fans with his knockout win over Lowell Brownfield there last year. Details on Smith’s opponent for that show will be announced soon.
