Last night, Errol Johnson - BCB Promotions - hosted an event at the Kings Hall, Stoke-on-Trent, which featured five contests.
In the headlining bout, Hatton-trained Jake Haigh of Macclesfield – who was to have faced Josh Miller of Dudley – now faced tricky opponent Emmanuel Moussinga of Stourbridge via Cameroon in an eight round Super-Middleweight contest.
Haighs’ low guard caught him out early on in the contest – with Moussinga catching him with a couple of loose, but decent shots. Rangey Haigh had the tidier work and better work-rate and, after an onslaught in round four, Moussinga’s nose is bloody. Haigh goes on to secure the points’ win 80-72
It was a quick nights’ work for Stoke-on-Trent Middleweight - Nathan Heaney, scoring a first round TKO after sending his Czech opponent (Martin Kabrhel) to the canvas three times in total.
Also on the bill, there was big support for Connah Walker of Wolverhampton who scored a points victory 40-35 over Slovakian boxer - Rudolf Durica. at Welterweight. Durica took a lot of big punches particularly in the third round when a barrage of shots seemed to go on for several minutes almost (!) but he was tough and kept going to the end of the contest, picking up a one point deduction for holding in the fourth.
Connor Parker of Woodville, via Burton-on-Trent, outpointed Stockport’s Jamie Quinn in a six round super-lightweight contest 60-54.
And Cole Johnson of Stoke-on-Trent notched up his first pro win by outpointing Simas Volosinas of Lithuania (40-35) in a lightweight contest. Johnson produced some nice boxing, although the shorts seemed a distraction (!) but the fight got messy in round three with Volosinas eventually getting a point deducted in the fourth for holding.
