Tommy Owens Promotions kicked off the new boxing season at Villa Park with United We Stand, Show casing some of the best boxing talent in the Midlands.

Fight 1

Sean Daly v Kevin McCauley

Middleweight

4 X 3

Daly looked slick at the start of his debut, he worked the head and the body well with McCauley could only cover up to see the end of the round. The second round was another good round for Daly, he controlled the round from start to finish with some great combinations. Daly dominated the third controlling the ring and dictating the pace with great shot selection. The forth and final round was again dominated by Daly who threw some cracking combinations and great straight rights to the body. McCauley tried to make a fight of it but Daly just stepped up the pace to win the round.

Verdict

Dexter - 40 - 36

Fight 2

Tion Gibbs v Lee Conelley

4 X 3

welterweight

Gibbs took his time in the first round and showed his class working behind his jab and putting in some great slick combinations together. The second saw Gibbs start the round well, but then seemed to ease off the pace in the middle of the round. Conelley got some good shots in at this point which woke Gibbs up and he got back to his boxing and won the round. The third saw Conelley asked the young Eastside fighter questions as he pressed forward looking for a tare up. Gibbs answered him by giving him what he wanted and in my opinion answering his questions. The final round saw Gibbs start with some slick moves and making some good angles putting in some nice combinations, Conelley then drew Gibbs into a scrap which didn't favor Gibbs. Gibbs eventually got back to his boxing and edged the round.

Verdict

Dexter - 40 - 36

Ref - 40 - 38

Gibbs wins on points
