Joe Smith Jr. is the WBO light heavyweight World Champion from Long Island and fights and trains in New York City. At 13, Smith Jr. moved home with his father, Joe Smith Sr., and for the first time, put on a pair of gloves at the Atlantic Veterans Memorial Boxing Club in Bellport, Long Island. He believes that boxing saved his life by keeping him off the streets and out of danger.

Joe Smith Jr. will seek a rematch against WBA champion Dmitry Bivol. Then Canelo Alvarez, if he defeats IBF/WBC champion Artur Beterbiev in their unification bout on June 18.

Beterbiev is the only active world champion in any weight class with a flawless knockout rate of 100 percent. Joe Smith, Jr., of Long Island, works as a construction and tree-service employee, and by night he is a world champion knockout artist. This high-octane bout has lots of action between two of the sport's most lethal punchers.

There will be guaranteed fireworks when Joe Smith Jr. and Artur Beterbiev fight at Madison Square Garden in New York City on June 18. Both fighters carry tremendous knockout power and consistently come forward. Both fighters are coming off significant knockout victories, making this fight build-up incredible.

Joe Smith shouldn't look over Beterbiev because he is the only boxer with a 100% KO record. That means there is a good chance that Joe Smith Jr. can suffer a knockout loss. Smith has only been knocked out once in his career, so this would also be a significant accomplishment for Beterbiev.

It'll be a fantastic night of boxing in New York, and both competitors will most certainly have a chance to win by knockout. However, Beterbiev has an excellent opportunity to add the WBO light heavyweight title to his WBC and IBF collection.

But New York will be in the building rooting for the Long Island native.
