Lonnie Smith was an important welterweight fighter in the 1980's and 90's. Known as "Lightning" Lonnie, Smith turned pro in 1980 and was undefeated in his first 23 fights, including a win over undefeated Billy Costello to capture the WBC Light Welterweight Title in 1985. He lost the title in his first defense to Rene Arredondo via 5th round TKO. In 1991 he took on WBC Light Welterweight Title holder Julio Cesar Chavez, but lost a one-sided decision. Offered here is an original corner jacket used in the corner of "Lightning" Lonnie Smith. White satin with red and blue trim and short sleeves. On the reverse are the words, "LONNIE SMITH DESERT STORM II." Generally clean. Presents very well.
