Unbeaten light heavyweight prospect Joe “The Irish Bomber” Smith Jr. is going old school taking his perfect record of 6-0, (six knockouts) back into the ring just 11 days after stopping Charles Wade last week on a Broadway boxing card at BB Kings.
Smith will be taking on Lawrence, Massachusetts rough and ready power puncher Eddie “Thunder” Caminero. Trained by “Irish” Micky Ward, Caminero, 6-3 is coming in fresh off a second round stoppage of Quincy, Massachusetts Chris Traietti, (8-2, five knockouts).
Smith from Mastic/ Shirley New York is trained by former Long Island light heavyweight standouts Gerry and Phil Capobianco who were known to go old school themselves. Brothers Capobianco together with Chris Cardona have developed “The Bomber” into a patient boxer puncher reminiscent of Bob Foster.
