Click the Image for more Navid Mansouri Vs Gary Boulden Photos
At Evoque Nightclub in Preston Saturday night, Oliver Harrison promoted a show which featured seven bouts from local boxers.
The headliner saw Rotherham’s Nav Mansouri score a fifth round stoppage of Surrey boxer, Gary Boulden, in a six round Super-Welterweight Contest, while Dublin’s Antony Fitzgerald scored a points victory over John Brennan of Slough.
Results as follows:
Navid Mansouri (Rotherham) v Gary Boulden (Shepperton, Surrey)
6 x 3 Super-Welterweight Contest
The opening seconds sees Boulden off to a confident start but Mansouri lands a right to the head which sends a clear message to the Surrey man and then follows it up with two or three further rights to the head and body. Both men grapple together.
Mansouri dominates the ring. Boulden stumbles to the canvas in the second round but it’s a no-knckdown.
The Rotherham boxer mixes it up with a couple of uppercuts at the start of the third and a big sweeping right lands to the head of Boulden and he goes down. He seems to fall heavily but immediately jumps up to take the count. Mansouri goes after him and Boulden holds on. Mansouri goes for the same shot a number of times and the crowd cheers.
Boulden bravely fends off his opponent in the fourth but Mansouri gets in a cracker of an uppercut in the closing seconds of the round which rocks back the head of Boulden. More...

There were two big fights on tap yesterday, with the WBC featherweight and IBF welterweight titles at risk in America and Great Britain, respectively.
Reigning WBC feather king Jhonny Gonzalez was favored going into his defense against quick-handed southpaw Gary Russell Jr last night at The Palms Casino in Las Vegas but the Mexican slugger experienced a surprise outcome.
The fleet-footed Russell gave the champion genuine problems from the first bell as the shorter American managed to punch and get out without providing the much more experienced Gonzalez a hittable target.
As Gonzalez continued to close distance, Russell began to stay inside and exchange with the champion, beating the older, slower Mexican to the punch.
This strategy was potentially very dangerous given the champion's tremendous left hook but Russell was not to be denied and struck paydirt near the end of the third round when he dropped Gonzalez hard with a flush left, right combination.
The champion arose on very shaky legs before being saved by the bell. Gonzalez was unable to recover by the start of the fourth and fell again after being set upon by the aggressive challenger.
Referee Tony Weeks gave the rubbery-legged Gonzalez a gift in allowing the contest to continue but waved off the action at just 0:37 of the fourth when the champion was again sent to the canvas. More...
