It was a clean sweep for all the home fighters on Sanigar Events card at the Whitchurch Leisure Centre in Bristol last night.
Former IBF world champion Lee Haskins (36-4) won his 40th professional contest with a 60-53 points win over Nicaraguan Sergio Gonzalez (10-19-5), but that wasn't the reason for it being a landmark victory. The talented bantamweight shared the bill he was headlining with his 19-year-old son, Anton.
It had been over 22 months since the 36-year-old had been in a boxing ring, but he broke the hiatus to share the bill with his talented son, who kicked off his pro career with shutout points win over four rounds at super-lightweight against seasoned veteran Ibrar Riyaz (6-169-4).
A father and son both fighting professionally on the same card is a rare sporting feat, not seen many times before.
The pair have been training together for a while, Lee said: "I can't say how much it means to me to share this with my son, it's incredible and a lifelong dream for me."
'Playboy' Haskins has had a glittering career that involved winning English, Commonwealth, British, European, and world titles. He now looks set to pass the mantle to his southpaw son,s a lot harder than him!
On the undercard, there were wins for welterweight Dan Sarkozi (11-2); unbeaten light-heavyweight Pawel August (10-0); lightweight talent Tyler Davies (7-0); and four other debutants - Jacob Gabriel, Ben Demmery, Jake Demmery, and George Pawley - all started their paid career with a win.
