FLASH BACK

Women’s boxing dominated last week and there was a sting in the tail end of this week to set up for women’s boxing two of the most eagerly anticipated fights of the year…

Before we get to that, last Saturday the 8th August in Marbella, Spain super featherweight John Carter beat Ibon Larringa for the EBU title on points. The super welterweight action between veteran of the ring, Tyrone Nurse and Kerman Lerraga, ended with the cautious approach Nurse promised pre fight but ended with a loss to Lerraga that he did not predict!

In Los Angeles, on the same evening,world title action at welterweight between Jamal James and Thomas Dulorme for the interim WBA title ended with a win for Jamal whilst the super middleweight interim WBA title went to David Morell over Lennox Allen. Both were wins on points with Morell winning the interim title in only his third professional fight…

During the week, on Wednesday the 12th of August in South Kirkby, super lightweight Craig MacIntyre blasted out his late replacement opponent, Ishmael Ellis and it has to be said that there was a gulf in abilities. Now that MacIntyre has got himself back in a ring here is hoping that MTK get him into championship action very soon.

Welterweight Sahir Iqbal beat Maredudd Thomas on points for the WBC Youth title and lightweight Jono Carroll lost to Maxi Hughes on points in a very close contest. It was a shock to the system and we all hope that the system shall now take note. This adds to quite a few bumps in the road for favourites since lockdown eased and things are all the better for that – trust me…

Last night, Friday the 14th of August we were back to Eddie’s with super bantamweight Shannon Courtenay losing on points to Rachel Ball. Courtenay hit the canvass in the first, but I had her ahead by two by the end; pity the referee didn’t.

Super middleweight John Docherty stopped Anthony Fox in the seventh round in a decent fight whilst super welterweight Kieron Conway continued his upward trajectory by beating Navid Mansouri for the WBA international title on points.

Super featherweight Zelfa Barrett then took on a former Lomachenko sparring partner in Eric Donovan and stopped him in the 8th whilst in the top of the bill clash saw middleweight Felix Cash stop Jason Welborn in the 5th round. This was not the fight that made the night and whilst it was a decent fight and a great performance from Felix Cash, this was not what Hearn promised as being the fight of the series. Luckily the supporting acts managed to provide an upset, a knockdown of the series and plenty to talk about anyway…
