At the Kings Hall, Stoke-on-Trent, last night, Luke Caci of Newcastle-under-Lyme secured a points victory (78-74) over Chris Dutton of Sheffield to win the British Challenge Belt on his fifth professional outing.
Errol Johnson’s BCB Promotions show billed as ‘On the March’ featured seven contests in all. Local boxer Kieron McLaren had been scheduled to fight Luke Paddock for the Midlands Super-Lightweight Title until Paddock was forced out with injury – so instead faced Fonz Alexander and secured a shut-out points victory (80-72).
Also on the packed out Stoke show, Jake Haigh of Macclesfield scored a points win over Latvian - Edgars Sniedze (80-72) And Nathan Heaney won his second pro outing with a points victory (40-37) over Emmanuel Moussinga of Stourbridge (via Cameroon). Debutant Ross Hollis of Swadlincote stopped opponent Sean Gorman to score a fourth round TKO in this – his first professional outing. Experienced Gorman of Aberystwyth had been on the canvas twice during round three. Leon Gower of Burton-on-Trent made short work of Latvian opponent Dmitrijs Gutmans – scoring a first round TKO, while Owen Jobburn lost out on points (39-38) to away fighter – Gary Cooper of Bargoed, Wales.
