Last weekend, on Saturday the 25th of July at the BT Studio in London the week’s double bill of Frank Warren promoted shows began with middleweight Denzel Bentley stopping Mick Hall at the end of the sixth round whilst featherweight Louie Lynn stopped Scotland’s Monty Ogilvie in the second. Super bantamweight Chris Bourke got a close points win over schoolteacher Ramez Mahmood to take the Southern title and top of the bill heavyweight Joe Joyce returned with a third round stoppage win against Michael Wallisch. Joyce looked over weight but truly performed once he found his rhythm in a performance that won’t be in his top ten performances of all time, but you really feel he needed this after a year out the ring. He looked good enough to go into camp to face the likes of Dubois – so a good night’s work, planned and executed.
We were back at the BT Studio in London, last night, Friday the 31st of July to see super bantamweight Brad Strand get a decent enough 4 round points win against Brett Fidoe whilst the light heavyweight Commonwealth title between Lyndon Arthur and Dec Spelman ended with Arthur showing his class as he retained his belt with a unanimous decision with one card having him 10 points ahead – looking at the state of Spelman’s face afterwards you could see how that might be a reasonable assessment of the night.
Also, on the card as middleweight Caoimhin Agyarko got a ninth round stoppage win in a very impressive performance against Jez Smith and featherweight Andrew Cain stopped Ed Harrison at the end of the third whilst super featherweight Nick Ball beat Jerome Campbell on points.
