This was Mansoori’s second defence against Mallin after the pair met in October last year. On that occasion, Mallin was cut by an accidental clash of heads in the opening round and the fight was declared a Technical Draw.
Also on the Coldwell Promotions Show – billed as ‘Pride of Yorkshire’ - Dave Fidler of Sheffield lost his International Masters Light-Middleweight Title to Lee Noble of Barnsley on points (94-97). This was Fiddler's first defence, having won the belt in September when he scored a ninth round TKO over Tomaaz Mazurkiewicz.
And Bolton’s Haroon Khan extended his winning record with a 40-36 points victory over Francis Croes of Middlesbrough.

Dave Fidler (Sheffield) v Lee Noble (Barnsley)
International Masters Light-Middleweight Title 10 x 3 Rounds
An exciting and entertaining fight from these two, with Ingle-Boxer Noble scoring a knockdown of the Champion in round two. Fidler continued the round but still looked glassy eyed when he went back to his corner.
Fidler had the busier work rate but his shots didn’t appear to faze Noble, whose punches looked heavy and packed full of power. He seems to lose momentum in the mid rounds and Fidler picks it up, but Noble switches back on in the seventh and sinks in a number of notable punches.
A delighted Noble gets the win on points 97-94 to claim the Title.
Navid Mansoori (Rotherham) v Matthew Mallin (Barnsley)
10 x 3 BBBofC English Light-Middleweight Title
Mansoori dominated the fight, landing a number of head shots and Mallin only just survived round two. The Barnsley man was on the canvas in the third and looked to be just about surviving in the fourth although he still managed to land with shots of his own.
Knocked down again in the fifth – Referee Steve Gray waved off the fight while Mallin looked dazed on the canvas. An emotional Mallin was reluctant to sit on the stool provided – saying ‘he’d let everyone down’.
Mansoori wins by TKO Round five.
Maxi Hughes (Rossington) v Imre Nagy (Hungary)
8 x 3 Super-Featherweight Contest
The fight was stopped in round three when Nagy, under a barrage of shots while on the ropes, was unable to return any punches. Popular Hughes wins by TKO Round three.
Jamie Hughes (Doncaster) v Lee Duncan (Sheffield)
6 x 3 Light-Heavyweight Contest
