(AUDIO) It’s Fight Night At The Forum

China The Dragon Smith

Coming up on the 13th this month, the Tampa Bay Times Forum is staging some big time boxing matches and one of the fighters who will be fighting that night is China “The Dragon” Smith.

China is fighting for the WBF title and has quite the interesting story. Smith a week away from the fight is beginning to relax his training, and that he has prepared as best he can for the upcoming fight.

China took 6 years off from boxing after he and his wife began a non-profit organization that was geared around helping at risk youth before making the trip back to the ring. Heading into his return to his career, China was apart of a documentary revolving around his return to the sport of boxing.

Being from Sarasota, China is looking forward to fighting in front of his friends and family and showing them how he his journey has brought him back to the ring.
