Denny Fills Cash In

Thirty-two-year-old Tyler Denny defended his EBU European Middleweight title against the undefeated Felix Cash at the Resorts World Birmingham on the Matchroom promotions show (22.6.24). The Rowley Regis southpaw brought a massive following to Birmingham with a record of eighteen wins and three draws out of Twenty-three fights. Cash (31) from Woking came into the contest unbeaten winning all sixteen fights so far.  The Middleweight contest was over twelve three-minute rounds with both fighters weighing in eleven stone five with Mark Lyson reffing.

 Denny took the centre of the ring as Cash moved to his right shooting out fast jabs, Denny landed some good shots just nicking it with the cleaner shots. Denny went to work in the second looking to rough Cash up, Cash sustained a cut above his right eye after a accident clash of heads with Denny winning the round with the bigger shots. Denny continued to rough Cash up who didn’t seem to have any answer to Denny’s Ragga Mufin style, Denny banged in big hooks to Cash’s head and body winning the round.

 Cash started the fourth well using his jab and countering Denny’s Attacks, Denny continued to press landing a cracking left hook near the end of the round rocking Cash who held on but won the round. Ref Mark Lyson called the doctor over to have a look at Cash’s eye. After talking to the doctor the ref deemed the cut to bad to continue with the fight going to the judges score cards.

 Judge Lee Every and Victor Loughlin scored it 49 to 47 Denny, judge Kevin Parker scored it 49 to 46 Denny, I had it 49 to 46 Denny.

Denny wins 35 seconds into the fifth-round on points.


Dexter’s Thoughts

Outstanding performance by Denny as he proved a lot of the doubters wrong taking another ‘0’ from an unbeaten fighter. Cash had no answer for Denny’s rough house fighting and I think the future saved him from a server beating. Denny has now got to be in the conversation to be fighting for big titles or even dare I say it World titles. Denny is like a fine wine and is getting better with age and I think deserves a shot at a bigger title. I would love to see him take on his stable mate British Champ Nathan Heaney, that at the Stoke Ground would be a classic, but it is doubtful full this will ever happen but what a payday for both it would be.
