"I'm not concerned about how far he hit it," Smith said. "What I'm really happy about is when he hit it."

It would be reasonable to think that a manager who had just seen his fighter win the state middleweight title would be quite happy. Not Max Gutierrez. Gutierrez was complaining about Tim Williams after the San Diego fighter had stopped Alex Ramos of Bell in the eighth round of their scheduled 12-round bout, the main event at The Country Club in Reseda on Tuesday night.
