Black country Boxing Promotions held their latest show “Emerging Stars” at the Willow Suite Willenall. There were seven fights on the bill with two four rounder’s and three six rounder's with all of them over three minutes. There were also 2 titles on the line with female boxer Lauren Johnson going for a international challenge belt over eight two minute rounds in only her third fight. Top of the bill was the unbeaten Midlands area bantamweight champ Kyle Williams taking on the English champ Thomas Essomba for his English title. With Ben Walters comparing the show as always, Shaun Messer refereeing and the stunning Lindsey Clarke as the ring girl, the stage was set for a great night of boxing.

Fight 4 Middleweight Craig Morris v Chris Jenkinson 11.4. 6x3. 11.3

Morris came out and took the centre of the ring putting Jenkinson on the back foot. Jenkinson countered well with some cracking shots of his own and made a statement he was no just here to make up the numbers. The second started very scrappy with ref Shaun Messer having to talk to both fighters. This was another close round, Morris was talked to again by the ref for leading with his head, Morris just edged this round for me.

Southpaw Morris started the third round strong, but Jenkinson continued to return fire, Morris fired some great shots at the end of the round to win it. In the forth Morris started to take control pushing Jenkinson back and working the head and body well. Jenkinson continued to get shot off and keep the fight competitive, but Morris won this round.

The fifth saw Morris start to pick his shots well, Jenkinson seemed to be tiring. Jenkinson was still throwing slots back but Morris was in control of the fight. Jenkinson had a real go in the final round, Morris had a point deducted for leading with his head. The round it’s self was very scrappy with both boxers holding, Morris finished the stronger.
