It was the usual party-atmosphere at Middleton Arena last night, as Pat Barrett (BlackFlash Promotions) hosted a four-card dinner show.
Mark Heffron of Oldham scored a second round TKO over Christian Hoskin-Gomez of Plymouth in their scheduled 6-round Super-Middleweight contest. Heffron’s big punches were too much for the Plymouth man and after a number of head-shots (on top of a variety of shots to head and body) Gomez went to the canvas at the end of round 1. He was being counted as the bell signalled the end of the round. Round 2 and Gomez is subjected to more heavy punches and, while backed into his corner, Referee Michael Alexander jumped in to stop the contest.
Popular Manchester boxer - Zelfa ‘Brown-Flash’ Barrett, scored a third round KO of a normally durable Reynaldo Cajina of Barcelona via Nicaragua in their scheduled six round Lightweight contest. Barrett whipped out the left - bang on target and Cajina was floored. Barrett’s next fight is on the Frank Warren bill at the MEN Arena in April.
In a scheduled four round Cruiser-weight contest, Lyndon ‘King’ Arthur of Moston made short work of his Bulgarian opponent – Tzvetozar Iliev, sending him to the canvas in round one with a body-shot. Iliev seemed to have hurt his leg at this point. He carried on briefly, but was pressured moments later on the ropes and Referee Alexander jumped in to stop the contest. Arthur wins by TKO round 1.
And, Jack Flatley of Bolton secured a points’ win over Anthony Fox of Westbury, Wiltshire (39-37), in their Super-Middleweight contest.
