Hate him or love him he is true to his word "I like to let fights reach their natural conclusions".

Whether this philosophy is in the best interest of the fighters hes supposed to protect is open to debate. Kelly Palvik I'm sure is a fan.

He does penalize fighters for holding, and doesnt let fighters get away with monkey business like turning their backs to punches as a tactic to win fights like Cintron tried
against AM, and Cortez allows.

Smoger's biggest fault is taking a fighters word on their ability to continue as he did with Edison M. A true no guts no glory warrior will need to be fully incapacitated
to not continue, and you would be hard pressed to find one surrender in the heat of battle.

Hes really good man.. He lets some fighters recover when they're hurt but he knows very well when its time to stop.. Pavlik Taylor I says it all

Smoger is a great referee straight down the line no biasness no favorites he takes no BS from fighters either I wish he was man in charge of Hopkins-Calzaghe instead of crooked cortez
