He suffered his only loss when he faced Saul Canelo Alvarez last year (=Canelo vs Smith), after this bout he has beat Marian Cazacu and Liam Williams in their first fight (but it was a controversial victory since Williams was up on the scorecards until a head butt from Smith caused a nasty cut, Smith vs Williams I).

Before losing to Smith he had beat Gustavo Alberto Sanchez, Gary Corcoran and Gabor Gorbics in 2016. Smith vs Williams 2 is valid for the WBO super welterweight title eliminator.
