    Default The British RBR - Jamie Moore v Andrew Facey - British Light Middle Title

    Hello folks, and welcome to the latest installment of Friday Night RBR's, and tonight's fight has the promise of a KO all over it, with Andrew Facey hoping for the upset, and Jamie Moore seeing this one as a stepping stone to fights at a higher level. After last week's humdinger with Gomez and Johanneson, hopefully these light-middleweights can come out swinging and give us more of that rip-roaring entertainment we love.

    Champion Jamie Moore (27-3, 18 KOs) had been hoping to vacate the British title by now, and challenge for an international title, but is back having one more defence of the Lonsdale belt, which he claimed in his second bout with Michael Jones in 2005. So far this year he's had two convincing points wins, notably over Sebastien Lujan, but is remembered in recent times for his awesome FOTY contender last September against Matthew Macklin. Moore's style has led to a number of exciting encounters over the years, and he already holds a 7th round KO over Facey from 2003, and will be hoping to improve on that result this time out. Moore's power could well be the deciding factor here, and he will likely be the technical superior too, being even more awkward from the southpaw stance.

    Andrew Facey (19-4-1, 6KOs) seems to have all the indicators pointing against him in this fight, between the loss that he already has against Moore, and being 7 years older then Moore at 35. Since their last meeting Facey has won six of seven, but five of those have been over 6 or 8 rounds against lesser opponents, and after being comprehensively beaten by Bradley Pryce for the Commonwealth belt, he surprised many people by shocking Gary Woolcombe for the English title in January this year. Taller than Moore, Facey will hope that Moore will look to box, where he can use his reach advantage, but if he is put under pressure and ships power shots, I fully expect Moore to win convincingly.

    Willhill have Jamie Moore a 1/8 (1.12) favourite, with Facey a 9/2 (5.50) outsider for this bout. Might be worth a punt on some of the middle rounds however.

    Elsewhere on the bill, we have MArk Thompson v Chris Saunders for the Central Area welterweight title, and awkward showboating liight welterweight Commonwealth titlist Ajose Olusegun penned in for a low-key six rounder.

    I guess Moore is keeping his eye in cause this fight seems a bit pointless.

    I reckon Middlish rounds stoppage is a safe bet 5-8

    For every story told that divides us, I believe there are a thousand untold that unite us.

    Yup, I have 30 minutes drinking time before fight time, and the more I've thought about this one the more I feel that Facey is going to struggle to even go the distance with Moore, let alone go in there an beat him.

    In the build-up to this fight, Ricky Hatton has been speaking, and indicated what I thought was the case, which is that this will be Moore's last domestic fight as long as he wins.

    Moore gets a rapturous welcome, with Facey's a little more subdued. Facey doesn't look to worried, and one of the most obvious thing to see is that Facey's four inch height and reach difference is quite large. Backing up the unfancied Facey and holding his belt is the WBC light-welter champion, Junior Witter.

    Next up, it's fight time, and Moore looking focussed and strong.

    Round 1:

    Facey with the opening blows, as Moore keeping his gloves high, and not shipping any of the punches. Moore with a long jab to the body, then does well to get inside and throw a couple of punches. Facey's punches don't seem to have much zip on them, although they are plentiful. Moore with a nice left hook as Facey backs out of the clinch. Facey plants a long jab, and a body shot as Moore closes the distance. Moore with a pair of body shots, and another good left hook up top. Moore falls shot with a punch, and takes a left hook himself. Facey with a couple of pawing punches as Moore comes in.

    Drawn round for me. Facey with pure volume, and a few decent shots as Moore comes in, but Moore is the more accurate.

    Round 2:

    Moore gets inside immediately with a couple of body shots. Facey a bit scrappy with a few short hooks, but Moore is looking to use the long overhand left. Nice right hook from Facey, but Moore comes in with a jab followed by a hook. Decent right uppercut from Facey. Body shots again from Moore, then a left straight rising into Facey's face. Facey awkward to fight against, but he's also finding it difficult to get through to Moore. A nice straight right from Facey as they break, but Moore goes back to work on the body.

    Moore's starting to find the edge, but Facey still troubling him.

    Moore edges that one.

    Round 3: Moore again looks to close the distance and work the body, but Facey puts some short hooks when Moore is inside. Straight left lands for Moore again, and Facey starts to backtrack away from Moore. Moore's jab and hook, and Facey paws away with some looping hooks. Another Moore overhand left finds the target, and Facey looking to back off from the punches. Facey is struggling to establish the jab, and that's what the Ingle's are yelling to him. Jab from Facey, then a decent flurry of hooks, but they look a little lacking in zing. Facey gets a little cagey, and gets on his bike.

    Moore's first clear round.

    Round 5:

    Moore a little more careful coming forward this time and lands a good right hook as Facey misses. Good burst of straight shots from Facey, and Moore is shipping 10 or 15 unanswered, Moore lands a big left, and comes back with a few of his own. Another straight right from Facey. Facey is now claiming the centre of the ring, and Moore looks in trouble, as his hooks miss the mark. a Facey jab is riposted by a Moore left hand, but Facey is undeterred, and comes forward with more body shots and a hook. Moore with a couple of hooks on the ropes, and this is turning into a bit of a barnstormer of a round. Facey with the volume, but Moore with a good right hand on the bell.

    Facey again.
    48-48
