Heading into his fight with Canelo Alvarez on Saturday night, WBO light-middleweight champion Liam Smith had a record of 23-0-1 and he had knocked plenty of guys out, but he had never been knocked out himself. That all ended when Canelo landed an absolutely devastating blow to Smith’s body in the 9th round of their fight.
At approximately 8:30pm on Saturday night, an explosion shook Manhattan near 23rd St and Sixth Avenue. The New York Police Department and Fire Department are on the scene but haven’t yet confirmed the cause. So far, there are 25 reported injuries and no fatalities.
