Despite the David Price fight being cancelled – it was still a great night at Bolton Friday night. The Johnney Roye – MTK Promotions show at the Bolton Whites Hotel (Macron Stadium) was slimmed down to nine fights in total but featured a couple of crackers.

Home boxer Ben Sheedy of Sale faced uber-motivated Matthew Wigglesworth of Brough, Yorkshire. Wigglesworth looked fired up from the start and kept up the pace throughout the ten rounds. Sheedy appeared to ‘switch off’ and any efforts could not dampen the determination of his opponent. Sheedy was on the canvas twice in round 8 but survived the remaining rounds and looked unsurprised when his opponent’s glove was raised. A jubilant Wigglesworth wins the Central Area Middleweight Title on points 96-94

Another thrilling contest saw Cuban Neslan Machado of Miami pitched against Nasibu Ramadhan of Tanzania. The exciting, fast-paced contest saw Machado sustain a cut to the right brow and Ramadhan on the canvas twice in the fifth round. Machado won the eight round Featherweight contest on points 76-74

And Adam Hague of Glossop scored a 79-74 points victory over Lee Connelly of Killamarsh in their 8 round Super-Lightweight Contest

Other bouts included a first round knockout win for James Jazza Dickens of Liverpool, a first round TKO for Damian Chambers of Dukinfield and a second round TKO for Sahir Iqbal of Bolton.

Craig Bunn (Droylsden) and Craig Nicholson (Gateshead) scored a draw 38-38 and there were points’ wins for Mike McGoldrick of Barrow-in-Furness (40-36) and Chorley’s Mark Jeffers (59-54)
