ATIF SHAFIQ (21-2) PTS6 v ARTURO LOPEZ (5-10-3)
6 x 3 mins Lightweight contest

Rotherham's Shafiq opened the show with a 60-55 points win over the 22-year-old Mexican known as 'Tarahumara'.

 

STEPHEN SMITH (26-4) PTS6 v DES NEWTON (7-5)
6 x 3 mins Lightweight contest

Two-weight British champion and two-time World title contender 'Swifty' returned from his 2017 loss to Francisco Vargas in Vegas, where he sported that horrific ear injury every fight fan hates to remember, with a shutout points win over 'The DEStroyer' from Devon.

The 33-year-old Liverpudlian is still not done despite three defeats in the last six contests. Getting back to winning ways and being injury free will be a big boost to the 33-year-old.

 

BRAD DAWS (3-0) KO1 vs ZIGURDS KRAUKLIS (2-3-1)
4 x 3 mins Featherweight contest

Nottingham's Daws was clearly in a rush as he took all of just 35 seconds to secure his fourth victory with a stunning first-round KO over the unsuspecting Latvian.

 

CHRIS BILLAM-SMITH (10-0) RTD3 v YASSINE HABACHI (5-14-5)
6 x 3 mins Cruiserweight contest

CBS retired Italian-based Moroccan at the end of round three. A huge shot at the end of the third stanza dropped and rocked Habachi to the core and couldn't come out for the fourht despite rising bravely and walking to his corner.

‘The Gentleman’, trained by Shane McGuigan, next heads into a WBA Inter-Continental Cruiserweight title fight with champion Richard Riakporhe on July 20 on the undercard of Dillian Whyte vs Oscar Rivas at The O2.

 

FABIO WARDLEY (7-0) TKO3 vs DENNIS LEWANDOWSKI (13-4)
6 x 3 mins Heavyweight contest

Dillian Whyte's protege Fabio Wardley scored a sixth successive stoppage after putting Lewandowski down twice in round three. The large German was trapped in the corner by the Ipswich heavyweight and wasn't throwing anything back behind his high guard that couldn't keep the Suffolk puncher's shots at bay.

The German heavyweight title contender was ridiculed at the weigh in for his overweight frame when stepping on the scales at over 350lbs, but has previously taken Tyson Fury's forthcoming opponent Tom Schwarz the distance over 10-rounds in 2016 in a WBC and WBO Youth heavyweight title fight.

 

RAYMOND FORD (2-0) PTS4 vs ALEKSANDRS BIRKENBERGS (4-22)

New Jersey's Ford, 20-years-old, doubled his win tally to 2-0 against the 32-year-old Latvian, scored at 40-36 by referee Shaun Messer.

 

TERRI HARPER (7-0) TKO6 vs CLAUDIA LOPEZ (25-10)
10 x 2 mins Lightweight contest

Yorkshire's 22-year-old WBC International lightweight champion made a successful maiden defence of her belt against Argentina's Lopez, who was cut over the forehead by an accidental headbutt in round two.

 

DALTON SMITH (1-0) PTS4 vs LUKA LESKOVIC (5-28-2)
4 x 3 mins Super-Lightweight contest

Sheffield's most decorated amateur of all-time, Dalton Smith, secured a shutout points win over Croatian Leskovic on his pro bow, looking razor sharp i the process.

The Steel City Gym prospect impressed in his inauguration to the paid ranks and looks set to become a big star. Trained by his dad Grant Smith at the famed alongside world champion Charlie Edwards, Dalton, who won every national title from schoolboys to seniors, will be one to watch.

 

LEIGH WOOD (22-1) KO10 vs RYAN DOYLE (17-4-1)
12 x 3 mins Commonwealth Featherweight Title

Commonwealth featherweight champion Leigh Wood promised to light up the arena for his fans and he delivered on that with a 10th round knockout of challenger Ryan Doyle.

A barrage of body shots on the ropes culminating in a left hook to the head saw to it that 'Ruthless' couldn't beat the referee's count.

 

JORDAN GILL vs ENRIQUE TINOCO RTD8
10 x 3 mins WBA International Featherweight Title

Mexican featherweight champion Tinoco, who weighed 5oz over championship limit at his first weighing, managed to deck the champion in round three with a body shot that really did the damage. Gill had to work hard to survive and had a torrid fifth round as well. Heavy-handed 'Torito's' body shots caused problems for 'The Thrill' all fight, who looked like he was nursing broken ribs.

Despite a successful seventh round for Gill, he went into round eight well down on the scorecards only to be withdrawn by his corner. Gill was decked three times throughout the contest and trainer Dave Coldwell did the right thing to throw in the towel.

Gill, only 24 still, conceded his WBA International featherweight title that he won against another Mexican Emmanuel Dominguez in March.

 

CHARLES FRANKHAM (1-0) PTS4 v TZEMAL XOUSEINOGLOU (1-4-1)

The talented youngster next appears at the York Hall on June 21.
