Joe Collins (Macclesfield) v Billy Campbell (New Cummock, Scotland) debut
4 x 3 Welterweight Contest
Joe ‘Crackers’ Collins was back after a two year break but lost on points against debutant Campbell.
Campbell came out ‘all guns blazing’ in round one and Collins looked to be caught off-guard. He struggled to find his rhthym – instead forced to ‘fend’ off his opponents attack, but he picked it up in the second round although Campbell still looks the busier. Collins is caught in the closing seconds of the third frame and looks disorientated as he wanders over to the neutral corner instead of his own.
Campbell finds success with the uppercuts and wins his first pro-contest on points 39-38.
Collins drops to 1 win 2 losses (1 by KO).
