Dexter’s Thoughts

Always like watching boxing at the Walsall town hall and Britain awaits was a great show to watch there. Nice steady start to the show by the mandatory British challenger Lennox Clarke. He banged in some cracking body shots and some good combinations as he ticked over while he waits for a date for a title fight. D’Animal Andrew Robinson was in no mood to mess about taking out his opponent with a cracking left hook. Robinson is also mandatory for the British title and made a big statement on this show. Ruben Campbell kept his unbeaten record with a great display of boxing. He had a great jab got some good combinations off and showed good movement, great display of boxing. Kashif Khan had a hard fought debut but showed great determination and boxing craft to get the win. He will learn a lot from this fight as he was pushed all the way by Jones. Owen Cooper also made his debut in front of a big support, he looked really good and had some good shot selection. Cummings gave him a good test for his first fight and like Khan he will learn from it. Davies put on a great display of boxing in his first 6 rounder, he dominated every round and dropped his opponent in 2nd. In my opinion the ref could have stopped the fight several times in the third as he battered his opponent. He ended it in the 4th with a sickening body shot that actually made his opponent throw up. Davies is now 5-0 and I have to say he is looking like a hot prospect and I can definitely see title in his future. The Birmingham boxing Column would like to thank BcB for having us at there show.
