Danny Shannon spoils the party again

Danny 'The Real Deal' Shannon (6-7-1), 28 from Chatham in Kent, won his third fight in a row, a record the away fighter has not achieved ever before in his career.

The unfortunate opponent was Kyle Hughes, now 2-1, who lost 55-59 to Shannon in front of his home crowd at the Harvey Hadden Sports Village in Nottingham on a Scott Calow Promotions event. It was the third unbeaten fighter that the journeying middleweight has beaten.

Unfortunately for Shannon, he failed to emerge unscathed from the encounter as he was cut over the right eye in the sixth and final round via an accidental head clash.

The popular fighter posted the following status on Facebook on his journey back to Kent: "Another road trip up north and we done it again, took undefeated fighters' 0. Three fights on the spin, give me any middleweight, let's have ya's, I'm coming, waiting for that phone to ring. Also just wanna say massive respect to my opponent even though I got the win, still have so much respect choosing me, not many fighters trying to build their record up will take 50-50 fights, well done Kyle Hughes."

It was 'The Cannon's' first away fight of the year, as he fought twice in Mote Park, Maidstone, on JE Promotions' events that served him with his first ever experience in the home corner. He defeated durable light-heavyweight Scott Hillman (0-38) via a fourth-round TKO in February, then he hit 'The Bruiser' Bryn Wain (0-28) with everything he had, just one month ago, to win 60-54 on points.

Signed to JE Promotions, Shannon had his team of trainers Ray Askew, Sam Latham and Lee Page in his corner, as well as support from teammate Charlie Shane, who is unbeaten in eight fights.

Danny was promoter Joe Elfidh's first ever signing back in 2014, but had a break after his eighth fight due to family and work commitments, returning to the ring in 2018. Since his return, he has won four from six fights, just two of those from the home corner.
