18.04.08 - MIAMI, OK - The Buffalo Run Casino in Miami, OK plays hosts to ESPN2's "Friday Night Fights" this week as former heavyweight contender Terry Smith looks to breathe new life into his career as he battles undefeated prospect Kevin Johnson in the 10 round main event..
It was a little less than a year ago that Smith rejuvanated his career with a solid victory over former IBF world cruiserweight champion Kelvin Davis at the Buffalo Run, however he two lackluster performances in losses to cruiserweight Rob Calloway and heavyweight trailhorse Robert Hawkins, have put Smith's future in serious jeopardy. A win over Johnson will put Smith right back into the heavyweight mix.
