Paul Daley Looking To Stop Scott Smith, Avoid Any Comebacks
Paul Daley has an important fight on his hands this weekend at Strikeforce: St. Louis when he takes on the dangerous Scott Smith as Smith makes his debut in the welterweight division following a stint at middleweight and with a couple of come from behind knock outs on his record, Daley knows he'll have to be careful against "Hands Of Steel" and get the finish early:
"The dude knocks people out, a man after my own heart. He likes to go in there and leave people lying on the floor, receiving oxygen. It is going to be a great fight. I have trained hard. I expect it to be a short but exciting fight. Heâ€™s had some crazy fights where he comes back Rocky style, but I am very good at finishing fights. When I hit people they stay hit. Both of us are knockout punchers, so from my point of view there has to be some caution to the way I approach things compared to the way I approach a standard fight. There are some tactics that I have been working on because of Smithâ€™s fighting style. I have been working everything, but I am slightly more cautious about working on other things when it comes to stand-up."
