Dexter's Thoughts

Heavy Artillery was a great show with all the home boxers winning there respective fights, Coles was impressive and so where the Saxon lads Murphy and Davis on there debuts. Luke Heron looked fantastic and got a great stoppage against a durable opponent and there is now talk of his next fight being for. British Challenge Belt. Singh looked really strong and Impressive at Cruiserweight and looked way to strong for Burke. The Birmingham Boxing Column looks forward to the next show.
