Adam Hague, Rob Hough triumph in Manchester

Phil Jay 26/10/2015

Welterweight Adam Hague can now boast a 4-0 record following a convincing points win over Gyula Vajda at the Midland Hotel in Manchester on Saturday night.

The 22 year-old took every round of four from the more experienced Hungarian, 26, to keep his unbeaten start together under the tutelage of former European champion and fellow 147 pounder Matthew Hatton.

Manchester-born Hague turned pro back in June and quickly scored three victories in three months over Lee Appleyard, Jason Nesbitt and Fonz Alexander prior to his latest points decision.

Also on the bill, Rob Hough got his career back on track after suffering a first loss last summer by demolishing Haidar Sadik in two minutes to improve to 3-1. The 33 year-old from Stockport was stopped in two last time out by Darren McKenna, but wasted little time in taking out Sadik.

Trainer Hatton declared his delight after the event by stating he was ‘extremely pleased’ with Hague and Hough’s performances.

Ryan Davies out-scored Chris Jenkinson over six at middleweight, whilst the shock of the night came as Dale Arrowsmith lost his debut to veteran journeyman Youssef Al Hamidi on points 39-38.

Al Hamidi, who has lost 79 times as a pro, won for the first time since 2012 to spoil Arrowsmith’s maiden pro bout and record win number 13.
