In an enthralling encounter, Scott Fitzgerald pulled a rabbit out of his hat in the final round to avoid what could have been tense scorecards against Craig Morris.

Fitzgerald had to take as good as he got for the majority of the contest and may well have been one round down heading into the last session when he managed to catch Morris and force the referee to step in.

The 26 year-old super-welterweight could now face Anthony Fowler in a domestic barnstormer with both men holding perfect records.

Gamal Yafai is now two victories into his comeback from defeat to Gavin McDonnell after halting Brayan Mairena in the seventh.

Yafai looked good before unleashing a huge fight-ending blow to stop Mairena in his tracks and improve to 16-1.

Sterner tests await the Birmingham man, brother of world champion Kal and amateur star Galal, who delighted the home crowd with another exciting performance.

In a surprisingly quick win, Ryan Kelly put Kelcie Ball to the sword early. Ball brought an undefeated 9-0 record to the table, although Kelly showed him little respect in that manner to gain a first round stunner.

Super-Bantamweight Osman Aslam can now boast a 13-0 C.V on the back of dropping and stopping Jack Summers in the third round, whilst Qais Ashfaq wasted no time dispatching of Gary Austin in the opening session.



Steven Donnelly opened proceedings by winning all four rounds against Miguel Aguilar to push his record to 2-0. The super-welterweight won every round to take the contest on points 40-36.

Sean McComb continued his progress by also claiming a second pro victory with a stoppage triumph over Lester Cantillano. McComb ended the fight impressively in the second round.

In a four-rounder, Shakan Pitters made it seven wins from seven with a knockout in two, whilst Kieron Conway won on points over four against Gino Kanters.
