Homecoming Tommy Owens Promotions

9/3/19 Tommy Owens Promotions put on a show in Coventry at the Mercia Banqueting Suite. The show consisted of 5 fights with three being over six three minute rounds and two over four three minute rounds. Below is a short write up by Eastside coach and manager Jon Pegg of the fights and then my thoughts about the fighters. 

Written by Jon Pegg

Great debut show in Coventry last night first time working with red corner gym and it couldn't have gone better.  

Drew Brown came back from 12 months out with his first six rounder against the toughest man in the game Kev McCauley and got a points win.  

Troy James trained by Glenn Smith had a cracking four rounder with Chris Adaway who somehow withstood two fighting ending shots in the fourth round to lose on points. Troy looked fresh and sharp and good to see him in his home town.  

David Nelson-Seymour trained by warren smith had a tricky six rounder against s very good Georgian opponent before winning 58.56 David will learn loads from this and I'm looking forward to progressing his career.  

Mtks Joe Sherriff got a six rounder under his belt winning on pts and is building himself towards a title shot. Joe won every round but at cruiser didn't have the same snap as when boxing st light heavy I expect to see that power back when Joe campaigns at his natural weight.  

Onto the fan favourite River Wilson-Bent trained by Brendan Norman boxed Daniel Urbanski who had shared the ring with triple G River did not disappoint dropping ,cutting and dominating a 40 fight veteran who was a real test. Rivers army of fans were brilliant as usual and a pleasure to have in the building. This is the first of many as myself and Tommy Owens want to do the same job with Coventry as we have with Birmingham and bring a great fight city some great shows and champions.

Dexter’s Thoughts

It was a clean sweep form the home corner in this Tommy Owens Promotions show Homecoming, it’s great to see TOPromotions showcasing some of there Coventry fighters in there own city. Joe Sheriff continued his winning run after making it 3 in a row in a six round points win. Seymour also made it two wins in a row in his first six rounder with fellow Godiva River Wilson Bent maintaining his unbeaten record 3 without defeat. Golden Robe winner Drew Brown took his record to 11 without defeat beating the tricky Kevin McCauley in his first six rounder. Troy James from Coventry ended his losing streak of 4 in a row with a good points win against the talented Chris Adaway.
