Dexter’s Thoughts

Tommy Owen Promotions have done it again with another great show, with some of Birmingham's best and newest talent on display. With Brown, Conway and Summers getting good wins and Shakan Pitters winning well on his debut against a tough veteran of 100 fights,that alone would of made this a great show. With the added addition of WBC International champ Craig Cunningham fighting on the show it was a great night for Birmingham boxing. After chatting to Craig after his fight he stated he is looking to fight for the British title sometime this year either at Middleweight or light Middleweight. After all Cunningham achived last year in boxing he really does deserve a shot at a Lonsdale belt, I just hope politics don't get in his way.

The Birmingham Boxing Column would like to thank Tommy Owen Promotions for having us there and we look forward to the next show on the April 29th at the Holte Suite Villa Park.
