Watch British super-lightweight champion Dalton Smith pick up opponent before SLAMMING him to the canvas in ugly scenes | The Sun
DALTON SMITH bizarrely slammed Billy Allington to the canvas WWE style during his win in Nottingham last night.
The bout took place on the Leigh Wood vs Mauricio Lara undercard at Motorpoint Arena.
On the way to victory, Smith provided a hugely controversial moment.
During the bout, the British super-lightweight champion responded to an Allington counter left by lifting him up and slamming him to the ground.
The referee immediately paused the fight, but somehow opted not to deduct Smith a point.
After being sternly told not to do it again, Smith got away with his indiscretion and the fight went on.
