Split Draw for Summers
Eastsides Ricky Summers secured a draw in his British eliminator fight against Lawrence Osueke on the Matchroom show in Newcastle (19/10/19). The fight was a very close and scrappy affair with the score cards being very different. Judge Marcus McDonnell had it 100 to 92 Osueke Michael Alexander had it 95 to 96 Summers and Howard John Foster had it 95 to 95 which made it a split draw after 10 rounds. The fight could have gone either way which makes McDonnell's score very questionable but that how he must have saw it from his side of the ring. Hopefully Summers and Osueke will have a rematch as this was an eliminator for the light Heavyweight British title.
Ricky took to social media after and made this ststment, he wrote "Lost for words about last nights fight very scrappy messy terrible fight don’t know whether it was clash of styles or my opponent been very negative I felt I was always pressing the fight but nothing was clean very poor performance from my self nice few days rest and hopefully some big news coming soon always learning and will come back a lot better from this thank you all for your kind message #teamsummers #boxing"
