Cruiserweight prospect Isaac Chamberlain overcame a dislocated shoulder in the third round to fight on and eventually defeat Wadi Camacho at York Hall in London.
Chamberlain, just 22 years old and with five wins under his belt, took on the far more experienced Camacho and seemed as though his perfect record was gone when his shoulder came out of its socket early on.
‘Chambo’ rectified the ailment himself and went on to take a ten round decision win from referee Jeff Hinds to give his reputation a healthy boost in what were shades of Danny Williams back in 2000.
On the undercard, welterweight Ted Cheeseman and middleweight Felix Cash, both ex-GB, look like true prospects after their performances. Representing the Wasserman and Matchroom stables, the pair looked impressive in extending their respective promising starts in the paid ranks.
Cheeseman scored yet another KO to make it five stoppages from his six wins against a strong and tricky Chris Jenkins, who had hadn’t been stopped in his last 20 fights.
What could have been a step too far in his early career after the opening two rounds, shortly became apparent Cheeseman was by far the better operator of the two.
For Cash, another new addition to Sims Gym and Wasserman boxing division, a very sharp start set up an even crisper finish, as the 23 year-old was clinical from off against Christian Gomez.
Cash used the length of his jab and picked his shots with venom, landing head and body combinations to eventually take his opponent out. The referee waved off the fight in the opening round to give Cash the victory and push a great start to the blossoming journey between him and new trainer tony sims to 3-0 in their first bout together.
Reece Bellotti, Jake Ball and Craig Richards were also triumphant on the night.
