There is a hiatus this month on boxing as it sits back, goes on holiday and licks its wounds in preparation for the new season. In the UK, there aint nothing a happening till the 19th August and in the world there is little happening either…

Since I too had a little break all there is, is some action to catch up on…

FLASH BACK

Two weekends ago, Saturday the 22nd July in Birmingham we had a super welterweight debut from Ashley Silver that saw him beat Casey Blair on points in what was Blair’s 34th professional contest.

On that weekend, we also had the return of heavyweight Dave Allen facing Tom Dallas in a small hall relaunch and there was a comfortable win for Allen and the road to recovery has had its first step. Allen won by knockout and Dallas announced his retirement from the sport right afterwards.

Last weekend, the big news all happened in a shower as Saturday the 29th of July saw the cancellation of the Return of the Jackal in Belfast and we lost lightweight Chantelle Cameron in her third professional contest, middleweight WBO European action between Conrad Cummings and Robert Swierzbinski and the top of the Cyclone Bill Carl Frampton in against Andres Gutierrez. It was all called off as Gutierrez slipped and fell in his shower! Next up shall be the announcement of a new date… or a new opponent… or a move up to the higher weight as Frampton failed to make the weight for the WBC eliminator…

In Manchester middleweight Denton Vassell was back in action against Edvinas Puplauskas in his 35th professional fight and Vassell got the win on points!

International action came from Brooklyn, New York in the shape of super lightweight action between Mikey Garcia and Adrian Broner where the only real problem was how big the margin of victory was between Garcia and Broner; Garcia made an easy shift of it all.
