It was the night that Mr and Mr Warren of Queensberry Promotions got Tyson a world title and Ali a win by disqualification… But first let’s start with father, Frank Warren, in Los Angeles who promoted the Tyson and proved…
Tyson Fury is the best heavyweight in the world.
On Saturday the 22nd of February in Las Vegas, Deontay Wilder saw that, we saw that but only he suffered from that devastating form and world level masterclass.
Tyson Fury is now the WBC, Gipsy and Ring Magazine heavyweight King.
I got it wrong, many others got it wrong and Tyson Fury, along with his team got it spot on, absolutely right, spectacularly and majestically correct.
Predictions over what happens next? After that howler of a prediction from me last week, I am giving them up for Lent.
Before the return of the King, the Prince won on the undercard, as Prince Charles Martin stopped Gerald Washington in the 6th round to start the case for an Anthony Joshua rematch – how far down the pecking order does he sit though...
Super bantamweight Emmanuel Navarrete kept his title with an 11th round stoppage of Jeo Santisima for the WBO belt. Navarrete is imperious at the weight and there is not much out there that seems to trouble him…
British boxer Isaac Lowe was also on the bill and got a win against Alberto Guivera on points. The most notable thing about the fight was that no less than 6 points were deducted between them by the referee… For Lowe this has been a great experience but not truly a fantastic showing on the platform provided.
Back in the UK in Oldham we had the light heavyweight fight between Mark Hefron and Ondriy Budera which ended before the first bell with Hefron scoring a knockout in round 1.
In York Hall the British super bantamweight title fight rematch between Brad Foster and Lucien Reid ended with Lucien Reid retiring after the 6th round. Reid was the most impressive and the debate is now done.
On the undercard, super middleweight Kody Davies got a points win against Umar Sadiq, and light heavyweight Willy Hutchinson returned with a 6 round points win against Edgars Sniedze.
The bizarre fight of the night was debutant Muhamad Ali getting a disqualification win against Sashev Sasher! The bill was promoted by Queensberry Promotions with son, Francis Warren in attendance, thus on one night Queensberry Promotions got wins for Tyson and Ali!
Last night, Friday the 28th of February in Liverpool middleweight James Metcalf faced Fernando Valencia, and to date we don’t have the result, but it would be a shock if Metcalf lost!
