FLASH BACK

We may have experienced a slow start to the year in boxing, but we have our first shock result of 2020. Last Saturday the 18th of January 2020 in Philadelphia the super welterweight IBO, IBF and WBA world title fight between Julian Williams and Jaison Rosario ended with Williams who held the three belts since May 2019, was ranked number 1 in his division by Ring Magazine and was the strong favourite to retain his belts, lost in a 5th round stoppage to Rosario. It was a case perhaps of experience not being enough…

In Hamburg, Germany on the same night there was IBO world title action at welterweight between Sebastian Formelia and Roberto Arriaza with the home fighter, Formelia winning a fairly comfortable points win.

Finally, last night, Friday the 24th of January 2020 at the Crowne Plaza, Glasgow domestic boxing finally returned to the UK in a bill that was changed from the one advertised on Boxrec, 7 short days ago…

There was no flyweight Neil McCubbin, super welterweight Marc Kerr, welterweight Abie Tweedie, lightweight Wayne Kenny or featherweight Craig Morgan. We did get the heavyweight trained by Dave Allen, Jay MacFarlane who beat Shaun Duffy on points. Will this be his swansong, given his very public comments about falling out of love with the sport?
