I think he'll beat Smith due to A) the weightcut and it's implications on Smith and B) the fact that Smith will be stupid enough to come right at Semtex and stand and trade, and I think that means goodnight. However Smith's style isn't a complete walkthrough for Daley and I'm really excited for this fight.
With all that being said, it's really difficult to consider Daley a top ten contender when you recognize how painfully one dimensional he is....
