Fight 3

Super Middleweight

Luke Heron v Mark Till

4 x 3 minute rounds

After seven months out Heron looked good, his movement, power and shot selection were excellent. It seemed that he could stop Gray at any point and there were time I thought the ref could have stepped in an stopped it. Gray managed to get to the end of the forth round, but Heron looked good and I think he is one to watch for the future.

Results

Heron wins

40 - 36

Fight 4

Lightweight

Manny Zaber v Kristian Laight

4 x 3 minute rounds

Manny took his unbeaten record to 8 by showing great movement and speed and shot selection. Laight who is a veteran of the game with 249 fights put in a good shift and gave a good account of himself, but kept himself safe.
