Dexter's Thoughts

What a great night of boxing and another packed out Holte Suite for Tommy Owens Promotions "Stand and Deliver". There were some great performance's from the home team with Ellis, O'Keefe, Pitters and Ball keeping there unbeaten records, Craig Cunningham winning a six rounder to keep him ticking over while he waits for the big fight he deserves and a great main event against Foster and Fidoe that may have been a draw and I may have had Foster winning on my card but it could of gone just as easy to Fidoe as it was that close of a fight. The only real downer of the night was Jordan Lynch being stopped In the first round, Lynch got caught by the .southpaws curse, the straight right hand. I honestly felt gutted for Lynch he is a great lad and a great role model, if he learns from this he will come back stronger and better and If he ever gets caught like that again he will know how to deal with it. The Birmingham Boxing Column will be looking for there Boxer to watch Jordan "The Lion" Lynch to start a new chapter in his boxing career and roar back to winning way and put this one done to experience.

Tommy Owens Promotions is having a rest over the summer and will be back at the Villa on the 2nd September and the Birmingham Boxing Column will be there.
