Early Results:

Former world champions Paul Butler and Viktor Postol made the most of their appearances on the bill. Firstly, ‘The Babyfaced Assassin’ was acting as the reserve for Ryan Burnett v Nonito Donaire and once again proved his class.

The experienced Yoan Boyeaux was dispatched soundly via a wide decision as Butler improved to 27-2.

Postol, who is eyeing a shot at the eventual 140 pound winner, dominated Siar Ozgul over ten for a 30th career triumph.

Super-featherweight Stephen Tiffney made it to ten victories against a solitary loss as a pro. The 30 year-old Scot out-pointed Arturo Lopez over the six round distance.
