Fight 3 Chris Blaney v Raimond Sniedze 12.1. 4x3. 12.4 Light heavyweights Ref Shaun Messer
Scrappy start to the first round but both fighters got some decent shots off, there was a lot of holding which ended with both of them going to ground as Blaney picked up his opponent. Ref Shaun Messer also had to have a word with them late on in the round for holding. The second was another round with lots of holding which was being instigated by both fighters. In the parts when they did box Blaney won with the cleaner shots. The third was another scrappy round with Blaney sustaining a cut above his right eye, not sure if it was a clash of head or a punch. When they did get to box both of them got good shots off even round. The final round was like the rest scrappy with both fighters holding. Blaney won the round with the better shots but not by much.
Dexter – 40-38 Ref 49-38 Blaney wins on points
