Darnell Nurse vs Hunter Smith.... Great Fight

Recommended Posts

Smith actually isn't that good of a fighter despite his size. He just has the reach advantage.

Good for Nurse for standing up to a guy much bigger than him though.

Smith is only two inches taller, so it's not that much. Smith is also only 5 pounds heavier, so Nurse is probably stockier too.

Still, two inches can feel like a fair bit, so I don't want to take away too much from him.

EDIT: I should add that half of the sources I found list Smith at 6'6 and half list him at 6'7" and I was going off 6'6". That said, 6'7" is more likely seeing as he may well have just grown an inch since the last measuring.

Smith likely got his name on an invisible list for that.

First, the cross-check to the face;

Second, hounding Nurse until he felt he had to fight;

Third, fighting a kid with no helmet while he had a visor and helmet on.

Glad Nurse smashed his face in anyway. I thought he took some really strong punches but he didn't shy away, he held his ground and gave back far more than he took. He gained a lot of respect from me.
