Unfortunately I was not at this show due to work commitments but managed to watch the live stream
Atal Khan was having his second professional fight and was impressive form winning all four rounds against a very talented fighter in MJ Hall. Khan is now two without defeat and will be looking to continue his u beaten record.
Amy Timlin was in sensational form winning every round and taking her record to 3 without defeat, the young fighter seems to be getting better and better with every fight and I think she is defiantly one to watch. As for the fight Timlin showed a fast pace and looked confident through out with fast hands and some cracking left hands. Timlin did get caught a bit with counters but as long as she continues to progress I’m sure her and her team will sort that out.
Connor Lee Jones gave a measured performance against a fighter who was having his 100th pro fight, Lee Jones showed fast hands and great movement as he waits for a shot at a Midlands title.
Connor Parker put on a great display of boxing in this tick over fight, he is now 12 without defeat and the south paw will be looking to add more belts after winning the Midlands area super lightweight title last year.
Cole Johnson took his record to 4 without defeat with a fast start and some great shot picking, this was a very impressive performance by the Stoke lad.
Luke Caci had a hard 6 rounder tonight sustaining cuts above both eyes due to two separate clashes of heads, the unbeaten fight dealt with it well fighting at range and putting on a great display of boxing.This looked like a great show and the column will be keeping an eye on the boxers from Stoke.
The main event was a very controlled performance by Heaney as he boxed well at range getting his shots off well. His opponent tried to turn it into a war but Heaney for most parts stayed composed and boxed from range. There were moments where Heaney got drawn into a scrap but got back to his boxing quickly.
