‘Triple Threat’ – a three fight dinner show hosted by Errol Johnson of EJKO Promotions, took place at Banks’s Stadium, home to Walsall F.C. last night. The event featured three contests – two of which were for Titles.

The ‘suite’ was packed out and, despite there being only three fights, it was a great night with bags of action.

Vacant British Masters Bronze Super-middleweight Title
8 x 3 Rounds

A good performance from Clarke who persisted with the jab to Blackwells’ head resulting in a bloody face from round 2. After a number of headshots in round four Blackwells’ face was awash with blood. A gutsy effort from the Trowbridge man but it was an 80-72 points win for Clarke to take the Title.

World Weekend Boxing Roundup: Golovkin, Abraham Win

By Wellington Amadulu February 23rd, 2015 All Boxing Results

Boxing came back to life a bit this weekend with world champs Gennady Golovkin and Arthur Abraham winning tough fights on Saturday evening in Europe.

Fighting at Le Casino in Monaco, Monte Carlo for the third time in as many years, WBA middleweight "super" champ Golovkin defeated challenger Martin Murray in the 11th frame.

While Golovkin won almost every round, Murray showed durability and heart, refusing to be intimidated by the more powerful and skilled champion.

The Englishman gave Golovkin his hardest fight, and was the opponent that lasted the longest, since Kassim Ouma took Golovkin 10 rounds in 2011.

Golovkin pressed Murray from the start but the challenger wisely did not simply stay on the outside but rather used his jab and movement to develop a fairly successful offense, centered around the left hook to the body.

Unfortunately for Murray, however, this strategy fell apart once Golovkin determined that his adversary lacked hurtful punching ability and began to develop his own offense, which, given the champion's tremendous punch power, was far more effective.

Golovkin began landing sharp headshots and once Murray felt the heavy hands of his antagonist, he began to clinch whenever the Kazakh slugger got in close.

In the fourth, Murray was canvasses by a right to the pit of his stomach and was put down again by another right, this time to the ribs, but made it to his feet in time on both occasions. More...

Will British Underdogs Smith, Murray Overcome Adversity Tonight?

By Nick Chamberlain February 21st, 2015 All Boxing Previews

Tonight, Brits Paul Smith and Martin Murray will be fighting abroad for the world middleweight and super middle weight titles, respectively, with Smith in Germany and Murray in Monaco.

For Smith, this is the well-deserved rematch after he was robbed on the scorecards back in September of last year. Smith put in a remarkable effort, showed grit and resilience, boxed well and put pressure on Abraham, who, as we all know, can be crude to say the least.

Unfortunately, I and many others still didn’t give Smith the win; most had Abraham ahead by a round or two. Yes, it was tight but Abraham still won the contest

Had the scorecards not reflected the obviously unilateral biased judging in Germany for Abraham…then this fight wouldn’t be happening.

No-one would have complained at a split decision going Abraham’s way.

Either way, because the judges were clearly watching something else, Smith gets a rematch. And it may work out in his favour this time.

Smith knows more now than before his last fight. He now knows he can stick with Abraham for 12 rounds and whilst he felt the punches of Abraham in the first bout, Smith was never really troubled by the champion.

Smith can win this…if he gets a fair shake, and more to the point, he deserves it. Smith has been a boxing stalwart and servant for a long time. He may not be an elite level fighter but what he lacks in skill, he makes up for in heart and determination. More...

World middleweight title challenger Martin Murray has heard all about the reputation of Gennady Golovkin, his next opponent, and respects the fact he's widely considered the hardest puncher in all of boxing right now. But that doesn't mean the Briton is overawed or fearful of the imposing Kazakh.
