Last night, at the Victoria Warehouse in Manchester, England, Middleton’s Alex Rutter won the Central Area Super-Featherweight Title by outpointing Brad Botham of West Melton over ten exciting rounds (97-94). Rutter snapped in the body-shots from the ‘off’ and Botham’s nose was bloody in the third round as ‘Big Al’ switched between head and body. But 'Beefy' Botham took the shots and stayed with it to provide a thrilling contest until he tired around the eighth round and Rutter stepped up.

The Steve Wood – VIP Boxing Promotions show saw a stacked bill of 13 contests in all, results as follows:

Zelfa Barrett (Moss Side, Manchester) v Reynaldo Mora (Barcelona via Nicaragua)
6 x 3 Lightweight Contest

Mora looked better than his record suggested and it was turning out to be an interesting fight then Barrett landed and Mora hit the canvas in the fourth round.

Barrett wins by TKO round 4

Adam Machaj (Oswaldtwistle) v Lukas Horak (Kosice, Slovakia)
6 x 3 Heavyweight Contest

‘Heatseeker’ Machaj had a different ‘air’ about him last night – he seemed more settled, in my opinion, but the result was no different – making short work of his Slovakian opponent. Machaj scored a TKO in 2.04 minutes of round 1 – Horak going down for the second time.

James Farrell (Liverpool) v Dmitrij Kalinovskij (Lithuania)
4 x 3 Cruiserweight Contest

Farrell wins on points 40-36

Adam Evans (Northwich) v Matt Seawright (Tamworth)
6 x 3 Super-Welterweight Contest

Debutant Evans scored a good points victory over experienced Seawright (60-54)

4 x 3 Super-Lightweight Contest

Bulger wins on points 39-37

Chris Monaghan (Salford) v Robert Studzinski (Llanelli)
4 x 3 Super-Middleweight Contest

Studzinski is stunned by a body-shot in the last round and hesitated momentarily. ‘Fatboy’ Monaghan tore after him but, in his haste, got caught himself. The Llanelli man looked physically drained in the closing minutes. Monaghan gets the points victory 40-36.

Lee Carter (Gorton) v Radek Varak (Czech Republic)
