Johnny Smith started kickboxing at the ProKick gym after a football career at amateur league level. To keep his fitness levels up over the summer break he was introduced to ProKick by a friend who had started training six months before. The young up-and-coming fighter always talked about starting the sport and after just training for 6 months then developed a real passion and talent for it.
The Calor Gas engineer had his 1st fight at the December 2009 Next Generation show. Johnny dubbed 'Swift Smith' had a couple of injuries that put him out of action. He made a dramatic return to the ring after the injuries had healed up and had a spell of fights back-to-back week after week which resulted in winning four fights in three weeks. Johnny continued to stay on top form, training harder than ever even after two defeats at the highest amateur level for European title.
September 2014 saw Swift Smith win his first World Title at the Lords of the Ring event held in Belfast`s Ulster Hall. Smith had his first bout of 2015 during the Total Divas event held at the Holiday Inn on 29th March - it was a prestige match and Swift Smith won on points. Smith topped the fight card on Sunday 14th June at the Made in ProKick event and remains the WKN world champion.
Since defending his WKN World title Smith has moved in to the professional Kickboxing ranks. He had his debut pro fight on the KICKmas December 2015 show at the Clayton Hotel against Canadian Samuel De Blake and won on points.
ProKick hit the Gran Canaria Spain on April 16th 2016 - Swift Smith won in the 3rd round Doctor stopped the fight, cut.
ProKick Idols event was next for Smith at Clayton hotel Belfast on the 5th June 2016. Johnny Swift Smith (WINNER 2nd TKO) (Bangor, NI) Vs Adrian Tomescu (Romania)
