Mark Heffron halts Andrew Robinson, JJ Metcalf beats Aitor Nieto

Prospect Mark Heffron picked up another vacant title, defeating Andrew Robinson to take home the WBC International Silver title. 

Robinson displayed a lot of heart but ultimately, he struggled from round-three onwards due to large swelling under the left-eye which looks to have caused severe damage.

Despite the bout being stopped twice for low-blows landed by Heffron, the middleweight wrapped up an impressive victory in round six.

Ricky Hatton-trained heavyweight Nathan Gorman destroyed ‘Big Sexy’ Sean Tuner within three rounds.

The Mancunian produced a ruthless performance, busting Turner’s nose in the first before flooring him in the second with a brutal right uppercut.

The referee intervened in the third with Gorman extending his record to 13-0.

JJ Metcalf overcame a stubborn opponent in Aitor Nieto to claim the vacant WBC International title.

The super-welterweight sent the Spaniard to the canvas in the final round before a left-hook sent Nieto tumbling to the ropes leaving the referee Victor Loughlin no option but to halt the contest with just 30 seconds remaining of the contest.

Cruiserweight Jack Massey produced a devastating right hook to floor Ian Tims and end proceedings in round two, whilst Zelfa ‘The Flash’ Barrett returned to winning ways outpointing durable Spaniard Edwin Tellez 80-71.

Lyndon Arthur out-pointed former Commonwealth champion and veteran campaigner Charles Adamu. Arthur made it to 11-0 with a 60-54 triumph with the official.

Prospects Jack McGann and Jordan Thompson both enjoyed stoppages in the third and fourth round respectively.

Light-heavyweight Zac Burton opened the show with a 40-36 victory on his debut over Dominik Landgraf before Heavyweight Alex Dickinson halted David Howe in four to push to 6-0.
