Frankie Gavin had little trouble getting past late replacement Bradley Pryce as Britain’s first world amateur champion extended his unbeaten record to 18-0.
The 28 year-old, who was first due to face Joseph Lamptey before Juliano Ramos was ruled out, hardly went through three gears as he took a 99-92 poiints win.
Welshman Pryce, 32, was dropping back to welterweight after suffering a string of losses at 154 and 160lbs, but had no answer to Gavin’s skills and dropped a 16th defeat in his 50th outing.
Also on the Leeds card, former world title challenger Paul McCloskey lost an eight-round decision in his first fight for 15 months as Dave Ryan nicked a tight decision.
Even with McCloskey, 34, putting Ryan on the floor with a body shot in the fourth, the Derby man overcame the Irishman as the referee scored the contest 77-75.
McCloskey may have done enought to probably see the card read the reverse, although barring a rematch, It’s hard to see where ‘Dudey’ can go on this performance.
The one-time European light-welterweight look tired in patches of the fight as the long-layoff clearly played a part in a lacklustre display that ultimately ended in McCloskey’s third defeat.
Talented super-featherweight Gary Sykes warmed up for his upcoming fight with Liam Walsh by comprehensively out-pointing Femi Fehintola over eight rounds 80-73
The former British champion inflicted a third career loss on the Bradford man and heads into his February bout with Walsh in good shape as Sykes bids regain the Lonsdale belt he last held in 2011.
