Eubank Jr blasts out Jeter in two; McDonnell triumphs

Phil Jay 24/10/2015

Results from Sheffield Arena, UK:

New Matchroom signing Chris Eubank Jr scored a two round stoppage against an over-matched Tony Jeter at the Sheffield Arena on Saturday night.

The current interim WBA middleweight champion moved towards a potential full world title shot with a predictably confident finish showing stunning accuracy.

As father Chris Sr and recently recruited trainer Adam Booth watched on, Eubank Jr produced a hurtful showing to halt the bout early in the second round.

In the co-feature, Gavin McDonnell kept hold of his European suoer-bantamweight title with a steady performance to see off Jeremy Parodi.

McDonnell is aiming to emulate world title holding brother Jamie on a path to the top, and on current evidence, looks set to be in the mix at some point in 2016.

Following the completion of twelve rounds, McDonnell was awarded the contest 118-110 and 117-111 twice.

Leigh Wood earned himself a crack at the British featherweight title with a dominant display against the always gutsy Josh Wale.

The 27 year-old, who trains under Dominic Ingle, started slowly in the first couple of rounds, but soon worked Wale out and took complete control.

In the second half of the fight, Wale found it hard to even find the slightest success as Wood saw out a 99-91, 99-92, 98-92 victory on the cards.

There were early four-round wins for cruiserweight Russ Henshaw and lightweights Steven Hale and Lee Appleyard – all on points, whilst heavyweight Dave Allen overcame Fabrice Aurieng via a decision over six rounds as all four remained undefeated.
