Lee Gunter Vs Kristian Laight

Gunter, feeling confident off the back of his first win, opens the fight straight in with body shots to Laight. Continuing to show his confidence throughout the first round, Gunter landed a couple of combos, but not really phasing Laight. Moving into the second round Gunter continues to attack the body of his opponent and controlling the fight well. After a few exchanges, Laight starts to get comfortable. In round 3 Gunter continues to go for the body while picking off his head strikes while Laight covers up. Laight continues to show confidence as his guard starts to drop and laughing off some of the exchanges. After touching gloves going into round 4, Laight moves around trying to mix it up and become unpredictable, but not really budging Gunter. Other than time being called for a minor clash of heads, both fighters seemed gassed by the final bell.

James: 40 – 36 (Gunter)

Ref Score: 40 – 37 (Gunter)

Lenny Evans Vs Naheem Chaudary

Evans, looking good on his debut fight opens up proceedings with a couple of clean headshots leading into exchanges between both fighters at the beginning of the round. Evans continued to look solid as he controlled the fight from the centre of the ring, while a confident Chaudhary was punching nothing but air. During in the second round, Evans continued to show dominance, picking and timing his punches with ease and rocking Chaudhary with a big left hook. Chaudhary had no answer throwing combos that went nowhere. Evans took hold in round 3 utilising his combos and speed to really put the pressure on Chaudary. Evans began round 4 strong and continued to dominate, delivering more hits than the Beatles. Chaudhary tried to answer with a succession of jabs but was not nearly enough at the end of the forth.

My Score: 40 – 36 (Evans)

Ref Score: 40 – 36 (Evans)

Tommy Silcox Vs Duane Green

Green looked nervous in the opening seconds of round 1 walking straight on to a huge right cross from the undefeated Tommy Silcox. There were a few good exchanges but Silcox clearly ran this bout from the beginning. Green continues to defend in round two as Silcox got caught with a straight right. After a big exchange, Green was left shrugging his shoulders not seeming to be bothered by the combos from Silcox. In Round 3, although Green parried many strikes, he failed to capitalise on Tommy’s sometimes ‘wild style’ which left himself exposed on a few occasions, leaving him open to unnecessary blows. Green still looked nervous in the fourth round and didn’t seem comfortable in the fight, while Evans looked solid, light on his feet and ready for more rounds. A red mark started to appear under the left eye of Green as Silcox tried to finish the fight before the final bell.

My Score: 40 – 37 (Silcox)
