Dacres Wins Second Fight

Updated: Jun 15, 2021

Sol Dacres won his second professional fight on the undercard of the Matchroom promotions Ritson, Ponce show live on Sky sports (12.6.21). The six-foot 5 Heavyweight from Warley West Midlands who had a Stella amateur career put on a great display against a very game Alvaro Terrero stopping him in the fourth round of the six-round contest. Darces weighed in 16 stone 1 with Terrero coming in 15 stone 5.

Nice jabs and hooks from Dacres who seemed to be taking his time and picked his shots well in the first. Terrero sustained a cut above his left eye from a good right hand with Dacres winning the round with ease. Dacres countered to pick his shots well in the second and was dismantling Terrero who was having a go back but was not having much joy.

Lovely lead left hooks from Dacres who continued to take his time and was picking his shots well. Terrero battled hard but Dacres was just too good for him. Dacres was boxing well and started to go to the head and body breaking Torrero down, he then seemed to stun Terrero and went through the gears with the ref having to jump in and stopping the fight 1 minute 36 second of the fourth round.

Dexter’s Thought’s

Sol Dacres looks a very accomplished fighter and has a nice relaxed style which I like and with Matchroom behind him, he will go far in the domestic Heavyweight division without a doubt. He is only weighing in at 16 stone which in Heavyweight terms is very light so I think as he progresses in his career, he will have to bulk up a bit to take on the bigger boys. He looked good against Torrero who came to have a go but could not do much against Dacres. He is still learning the pro game and with Max McCracken staring him in the right direction he can definitely be a force in British heavyweight boxing.
