Dexter’s Thoughts

What a cracking night of boxing, some of the very best talent in Birmingham on display and all of the fighters showed how good they are. Hamza looked very tidy and showed some good power, Cori Gibbs showed why he is so highly rated at Eastside and why he is a bbcolumn's boxer to watch with a great display of boxing. Silcox on his debut look very tidy and shows loads of potential, Sean Davis looked fantastic cruising to a clean swipe result win, knocking his opponent down on the way in a fight to keep him warm before his next big fight. Ryan Kelly continued his unbeaten record by stopping his opponent in the third with some fast hands and heavy shots, Top Promotions can be very proud of themselves for putting on a great show like this. The Birmingham boxing column is looking forward to there next show on the 17th March.
