Andrew ‘Paddy’ Patterson (Birmingham) v Steve Spence (Scunthorpe)
10 x 3 Vacant British Masters Light-Middleweight Title
Patterson looked ‘mean’ and determined as he stood in the ring waiting for his chance at a Title. It looked a ‘cumbersome’ start from both men but as they settled in – Spence became the busier of the two and likeable ‘Paddy’ was starting to take a few too many headshots.
Spurred on by his wife’s shouts of encouragement and the chants of ‘Andy’ from the crowd – Patterson stepped it up in the sixth round. But Spence seemed to settle in more as the rounds notched up and after a number of headshots in the tenth round – Patterson, who was pressured back on the ropes, was struggling to get away from the Scunthorpe man. Referee Shaun Messer jumped in to stop the fight in 2 minutes 17 seconds of the tenth and final round.
Steve Spence wins the British Masters Light-Middleweight Title and improves to 3 wins (2 by KO) 25 losses (4 by KO) and 4 draws.
While disappointed Patterson’s record now stands at 5 wins (4 by KO) 35 losses (6 by KO) and 3 draws.
