Dexter’s thoughts

What a absolute great night of boxing, Tommy Owens Promotions have done it again with a great undercard and a wicked main event. Great win for Carl Dickens who is looking to keep his momentum going and is fighting on the 2nd December at villa park. David Seymour looked impressive on his debut and could well been one to watch. Cooper kept up his unbeaten record and is looking very good, also Tony Jones had a great scrap with Michael Mooney. The Irish man Ray Moylette really did impressive me tonight with great movement, shot selection and patients. As for the main event, what a fight, massive congratulations to Charlie Williams and his team for winning the Midlands area title. Charlie has worked hard to get this shot and has been victorious against a very credible opponent in Nathan Kirk. We look forward to seeing Williams keep progressing and winning titles. The Birmingham Boxing Column would like to thank Tommy Owens Promotions for having us their and we look forward to their next event on the 18th November at Villa park.
