Fight 1 Shakan Pitters v Elvis Dube Cruiserweight 4x3

Nice controlled round by Pitters to start the night off using a nice sharp jab and some stiff right hands and great movement to win the first round. In round two Pitters again moved well popping out the jab, Dube did put some pressure on but nothing to bother Pitters. The third saw Pitters again control the round as he started to bang home some heavy shots, Dube battled on but was just being out classed by Shakan's shot selection. Pitters really put the hurt on Dube rocking him several times in the final round, to Dubes credit he took the shots well but could only cover up to see the round out.

Result

Dexter – 40-36 Ref 40-36 Pitters wins points

Fight 2 Matt Sen v Kevin Williams Cruiserweight 4x3

Sen bossed the first round from start to finish with some heavy hands and nice combinations with them all ending with a nice left hook. The second saw Sen again controlled the round taking the centre of the ring and boxing well. Williams seemed shocked on his debut as Sen won the round with ease. Sen started the third round well but Williams did get some good shots off, but this did not deter Sen from walking him down. In the final round Williams started to move well around the ring shooting out jabs. Sen continued to walk him down and applied pressure.

Good start by both boxers, both having joy and getting there shots off, Loach edged the first for me, but very impressive round by both fighters.
