Fight # 4
8 X 3 Minute Rounds Middleweight Contest
DENZEL BENTLEY vs KELCIE BALL
Denzel Bentley (11-0) continued his devastating run in the middleweight division with a first-round stoppage of Midlands Area title contender Kelcie Ball (10-2). 'Too Sharp' was, well, too sharp for travelling opponent Ball and grabbed the win in just 72 seconds, even though he was pulled aside for a moment and warned by referee Kieran McCann for his roughhouse tactics. Bentley was rushing his work and missing but his relentless attacks were too much for Ball and his left hook failed to miss the target every time.
The 24-year-old Battersea banger pummeled Ball to submission to record his ninth stoppage win from 11 contests and looks set to put the top 160-pounders in Britain on red alert.
Fight # 5
8 X 3 Minute Rounds International Super-Middleweight Contest
WILLY HUTCHINSON vs BORISLAV ZANKOV
Willy Hutchinson (10-0) kicked off the action on BT Sport in devastating fashion with a second round TKO win to move his record up to double figures at 10-0. A short left hook after some heavy shots put Zankov (11-27-1) down but he was allowed to continue after rising to his feet. The Scottish 'Braveheart' evaded a wild shot from the Bulgarian light-heavyweight and after another jab and right hand, referee Lee Every jumped in to stop the contest.
David Haye stated from ringside that "It was a punch-perfect performance." He added "These are world class combinations he's putting together."
Fight # 6
6 X 3 Minute Rounds International Bantamweight Contest
DENNIS McCANN vs GEORGI GEORGIEV
Georgiev went down twice in the opener but survived to hear the bell sound. However, 'Dennis the Menace' ended matters at 2:53 in the second round. A lunging right hook followed by a straight left was the successful combination for McCann. Georgiev went down for a third time and rose to his feet for a third time, but an ensuing flurry soon forced referee Kieran - no relation - McCann to waive off the contest early.
Dennis McCann, 18 from Maidstone in Kent, looks set to be Britain's next biggest boxing star. He's accurate, hungry, vicious and talented. Definitely one to watch!
Fight # 10
4 X 3 Minute Rounds Lightweight Contest
SAM NOAKES vs CHRIS ADAWAY
Maidstone's Sam Noakes (1-0) kicked off his pro career with a third-round TKO win.
Noakes gave Adaway all sorts of problems and suffered a cut courtesy of a crisp Noakes uppercut and was told that he couldn't continue just prior to the fourth and final round commencing due to the severity of the injury.
Fight # 7
WBO WORLD FLYWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP
10 X 2 Minute Rounds
NICOLA ADAMS OBE vs MARIA SALINAS
WBO flyweight champion Nicola Adams (5-0-1) kept her title...just. Boxing's 'First Lady' was held to a draw by experienced Mexican Maria Salinas (21-7-4) with scores of 94-96 against, 97-93 for and 95-95. The crowd booed the result and applauded Salinas as she left the ring. Adams graciously offered her worthy opponent a rematch. The double Olympic champion put the under par performance down to ring rust.
Fight # 8
WBO EUROPEAN SUPER-FEATHERWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP
10 X 3 Minute Rounds
ARCHIE SHARP vs DECLAN GERAGHTY
WBO European super-featherweight champion Archie Sharp was slow getting to grips with Dublin’s Declan Geraghty, who took the first three rounds comfortably. The Irishman was bettering the champion in his own back yard, who was cut under the left eye, until a hellish left hook from Sharp nocked the gutsy challenger clean out. Sharp came out swinging in the fourth and Geraghty matched him when he didn't really need to and paid the price for throwing caution to the wind.
It was a cruel change of fates for the Dubliner, who had started so brightly, but the Welling man showed his heart of a champion by pulling out a wondrous punch when trailing on the early scorecards. It has to be said of Sharp that he always finds a way to win and can adapt to any situation within those ropes. He can mix style with wild at click of a finger and it works for him!
The 24-year-old 'Sharpshooter' retained his WBO European strap and notched up a ninth KO from 17 straight wins.
Fight # 9
VACANT COMMONWEALTH & WBO INTERNATIONAL HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP
12 X 3 Minute Rounds
DANIEL DUBOIS vs EBENEZER TETTEH
'Dynamite' drops Ghana’s Ebenezer Tetteh in the first round. He gets up but goes down again. Bravely, he rose to his feet but it's all over in the first and Dubois wins the vacant Commonwealth heavyweight crown.
Greenwich powerhouse, Dubois, rammed his stiff jab down Tetteh's throat forcing the unbeaten opponent to cover up and landed a neat one-two to the head, followed seamlessly by a left hook to body and head. Another left hook to the body followed by a right cross upstairs put the African down heavily. He rose to hs feet but didn't look good, so Dubois waged in with seven or eight shots to the head to force him down again and the contest was called off in just two minutes.
Dubois moved up to 13-0 and Tetteh dropped to 19-1. 'DDD' picked him his seventh professional title with the win and notched up a 12th KO from 13 contests.
