DALTON SMITH slammed Billy Allington to the screen WWE style during his win last night in Nottingham.
The fight took place on the undercard Leigh Wood vs. Mauricio Lara at Motorpoint Arena.
Smith created a hugely controversial moment en route to victory.
During the fight, the British Super Lightweight Champion responded to a left Allington counter by lifting him up and knocking him to the ground.
The referee immediately stopped the fight but somehow chose not to deduct a point from Smith.
After being sternly told not to do it again, Smith got away with his indiscretion and the fight continued.
The 26-year-old from Sheffield then improved to 14:0 with a dominant point gain and was on the scorecards 120:107, 119:108 and 119:108.
Smith has been compared to wrestler Steve Austin on social media, and iFL TV dubbed him “Stone Cold Dalton Smith”.
One fan replied: “Freezing? Or completely illegal?”
And a second wrote: “Pathetic referee who does not dock there.”

A third commented: “Dirty, no need at all.”
And another added: “Pathetic direct DQ.”
In the main event, Leigh Wood was dethroned as the world featherweight champion by Mauricio Lara.
Dubbed “Dance with the Devil,” the fight ended with a left hook from hell.
Wood was comfortably ahead on the scorecards through six rounds.
But Lara produced a brutal seventh-round KO to steal the Brit’s crown.
Wood’s defeat left his dreams of an all-British title defense against Josh Warrington in tatters.
