Ishe Smith Has Scale Fail For Fight With Galarza
Galarza might be facing a vet whose body is not cooperating like it used to.

Vet Ishe Smith weighed in and had a scale fail Thursday, ahead of his Friday fight against Frank Galarza in Vegas.

Smith was 157.4 after a sweat out, because he was supposed to be 156 max for the PBC on BOUNCE mainer.

Word is that Smith paid a fine for the transgression.

Smith bragged that he'd quickly show the Brooklyner that he was of a better class. But his confident tone didn't match his performance in his first task he'd be expected to master, before his scrap, making weight. At 38, maybe his body isn't cooperating like it used to.

Galarza was 154, for the record.

Editor/publisher Michael Woods got addicted to boxing in 1990, when Buster Douglas shocked the world with his demolition of the thought to be impregnable Mike Tyson. The Brooklyn-based journalist Woods has covered the sport since then, for ESPN The Magazine, ESPN.com, ESPN New York, RING, and he was editor of TheSweetScience.com from 2007-2015. Woods is also an accomplished blow by blow and color man, having done work for Top Rank, DiBella Entertainment, EPIX, and for Facebook Fightnight Live since 2017. He now does work for PROBOX TV, the first truly global boxing network.
