Kaisee Benjamin Just Misses Out On British Title
On Saturday night top UK prospect, Dalton Smith, managed to repels a determined Kaisee Benjamin in a British Title fight that pitted two of the country’s brightest Super Lightweight prospects.
As Dalton Smith began with calm measure to his boxing, his challenger also had no wish to make a mistake. He tripled his jab, darted in but made sure to rapidly back away when Smith launched his right. They boxed with respect for each other but began to open up more in the fourth round, with Benjamin pinning Smith on the ropes as the champion defended himself with elbows tucked in tight.
Benjamin would come after the Sheffield man as Smith moved away on the back foot. But the champion began to clip him with neat two-punch combinations. His left hook set up a firm right, a jab teed up a long uppercut.
