Isaac Lowe scores successive stoppage
Lee McGregor and Isaac Lowe (24-2-3, 8KO) exchanged a heated face-off in the ring tonight, as the featherweight rivals gear up for their rearranged clash.
McGregor was due to face Lowe in the headline fight in Bolton this evening, live and free-to-air on Channel 5, but injury to 'Lightning' forced him off the card.
Lowe enjoyed a destructive first round stoppage win on the Wasserman Boxing event and, following the victory, McGregor got up from his ringside commentary position, to square off with his rival in the ring.
The pair will meet in the New Year, with a new date to be confirmed in due course.
Chloe Watson vs Justine Lallemand
In the main event, Ricky Hatton's protege Chloe Watson (7-0) defeated France's Justine Lallemand (9-3-1, 1KO) unanimously to win the vacant European flyweight title with scores of 97-93 twice, 96-94.
The champion commented after the bruising battle, "It was a good scrap, as you can see from the bump on my head!
"This is my first title as a professional and it means so much. I knew this fight was a step in the right direction and I know there is still loads to work on in the gym so this is just the beginning."
Nathan Gorman vs Bohdan Myronets
In the co-main event, British title contender Nathan Gorman (19-3, 13KO) was upset by foreign opponent Bohdan Myronets (8-1, 4KO).
The Ukrainian won 77-76 after taking an early lead in the first half of the eight-round heavyweight contest.
Th 27-year-old from Nantwich was expected to get a routine win over the visitor, but was too sluggish with all the extra weight he was carrying, flat-footed, idle, with no sense of urgency.
The spritely European was able to land his shots whilst Gorman took too long to get into range or throw anything back. Gorman was able to close the gap in the latter half of the contest, but couldn't overcome the early defecit and was bettered in the final round too, which is where he really needed to step on the gas.
It's the first time the cousin of Tyson fury has suffered back-to-back defeats, and will have a hard road back to title contention.
Prior to this comeback bout, Gorman was calling for a British heavyweight title fight with David Adeleye, which now appears to be distant and overly ambitious.
