GED CARROLL v DES NEWTON
6 x 3 mins super-lightweight contest
The 'G-Man' moved up to 10-0 with a 59-54 points win over Desmond 'The DEStroyer' Newton (7-3), who was floored in the first round by the 27-year-old Liverpudlian. That was the Devonian's third consecutive defeat.
PAUL BUTLER v FADHILI MAJIHA
6 x 3 mins super-bantamweight contest
Former IBF world super-flyweight champion Paul Butler (28-2) won 58-56 on points in his 30th contest. The 30-year-old 'Baby Face Assassin' from Ellesmere Port is now campaigning at super-bantamweight after failing to make weight for his IBF world bantamweight fight with Emmanuel Rodriguez back in May last year.
CRAIG GLOVER v VACLAV PEJSAR
8 x 3 mins cruiserweight contest
There was a major upset as cruiserweight Craig Glover (9-2) was down in the first and second rounds, finally halted at 2:04 by referee Steve Gray at the hands of former Czech heavyweight champion Vaclav Pejsar (14-7).
PHILLIP BOWES v TOM FARRELL
12 x 3 mins Commonwealth super-lightweight championship
Leytonstone's 'Quicksilver' Philip Bowes (20-3) retained his Commonwealth strap with scores of 118-110, 118-111 and 117-112 against challenger Tom Farrell (16-2), just one month on from winning the coveted crown in February.
JOE HUGHES v ROBBIE DAVIES Jr
12 x 3 mins EBU & British super-lightweight titles
Robbie Davies Jr (18-1) came back from behind in a tough contest with Joe Hughes (17-4-1) that really split the judges despite scoring a unanimous decision - 113-115, 110-118 and 114-115.
DAVID PRICE v KASH ALI
10 x 3 mins heavyweight contest
Central Area heavyweight champion Kash Ali (15-1) blew his chance at breaking into the big time by biting David Price (24-6) and getting disqualified in the fifth round as a result. It was a bizarre end to the 10-round heavyweight contest as the 27-year-old unbeaten Brummie rugby tackled Price to the floor then proceeded to bite him, causing referee Mark Lyson to disqualify him with just 40 seconds remaining in the fifth round. He bit into Price's bicep only moments earlier in the round, clearly in desperation, knowing that he couldn't win the fight legitimately. Fans responded by saying he knew he was getting knocked out soon so chose to end matters in his own way. Early reports have suggested that Ali's fight purse has already been revoked.
ANTHONY FOWLER v SCOTT FITZGERALD
10 x 3 mins vacant WBA International super-welterweight championship
Fowler was taken further into his pro career than ever before by bitter rival Fitzgerald. The 2014 Commonwealth Games gold medalist was cut above the left eye after the fifth round. Fellow Liverpudlian Tony Bellew scored it dead even going into the ninth round. #
After a speaking to from trainer Dave Coldwell in the corner, 28-year-old Fowler came out with a sense of urgency in the penultimate round and landed the best punch of the fight with a brilliant uppercut sending the head of Preston's 'Fitzy' flying! However, the drama elevated even further in the final round when Fowler was put down by a left hook from Fitzgerald, who just about managed to survive to hear the final bell!
The final result ended as a split decision win to Scott Fitzgerald with scores of 96-94 to Fowler and 95-94 twice to Fitzgerald.
LIAM SMITH v SAM EGGINGTON
12 x 3 mins vacant WBC Silver super-welterweight championship
Liam Smith was in complete control from the opening bell, which turned out to be a one-sided beatdown over the unfortunate Brummie Sam Eggington, ending two minutes into round five after referee Bob Williams had seen enough and saved 'The Savage' from any further damage.
TASHA JONAS v FERICHE MASHAURY
6 x 2 mins lightweight contest
Liverpudlian lightweight Natashas Jonas (7-1) won all six-rounds against Tanzanian Feriche Mashauri (7-2).
