Ishe Smith vs. Tony Harrison To Headline May 11 PBC On Bounce Card

Premier Boxing Champions will return to Bounce TV with a fight between junior middleweight contenders Ishe Smith and Tony Harrison. 

A press release sent to Fightful said Smith and Harrison will headline a May 11 PBC on Bounce television card emanating from Sam's Town in Las Vegas. Smith, a 39-year-old former IBF junior middleweight world champion, is coming off a loss to Julian Williams last November, but said he's feeling better than ever and is focused on getting a knockout win over Harrison.

"I don't feel like I'm approaching 40, I actually feel younger and in the best shape of my life. This camp I'm focused on not leaving anything into the judges hands like last time. I can't allow another bad call against me. It's time for me to make a statement, dominate, and get this guy out," Smith said in the press release. 

Harrison is on a two-fight win streak since losing to Jarrett Hurd on February 2017 in an IBF world title fight. Harrison already owns a win in 2018, scoring a TKO win over George Sosa, improving his professional record to 26-2.

The co-main event of the May 11 PBC card is a 10-round cruiserweight fight between undefeated contender Andrew Tabiti and Lateef Kayode. Tabiti has not fought since defeating Steve Cunningham on the Floyd Mayweather vs. Conor McGregor pay-per-view card last August, retaining the NABF title and winning the vacant USBA title. 

Kayode is coming off a unanimous decision loss to Keith Tapia last year on the undercard of a World Boxing Super Series card in Texas last year. Kayode once challenged for the WBA cruiserweight world title in 2015, suffering a TKO loss to Denis Lebedev.
