Felix Cash continued his pro journey in claiming a first pro title against Rasheed Abolaji

Cash produced a clinical performance to pick up the Commonwealth middleweight strap.

After knocking Abolaji down with a jab, Cash went straight back to work. He switched his targeting to heady and body until an overhand right was the answer to a defeated Abolaji.

Dropping him again, the fight ultimately ended at 2:45 of the first round.

Scott Fitzgerald vs. Radoslav Mitev

Fitzgerald played the bully against the much smaller Mitev. He cut off the ring and used a barrage of heavy shots. A short right hand dropped Mitev late in the first round.

A huge left hook landed on the groin area of Mitev where he took some time to recover on the canvas. After getting up, Fitzgerald made short work of Mitev. He used an uppercut to finish the job at 1:24 in the 2nd round.

Fitzgerald’s next stop is a much higher level against Anthony Fowler in March.

John Docherty vs. Przemyslaw Binienda

Docherty continued his professional career in style, using a flurry of attacks he drew blood from the face of Binienda within the first minute.

Finishing with a half uppercut half hook, red-faced Binienda went flying to the ropes. The ref stopped the fight at 1:59.

Docherty’s new and improved record stands at 3-0 (3 KOs).


Dana Zaxo vs. Tayar Mehmed

Zaxo started wearily with body movement and occasionally jabbing. Mehmed was able to land punches flush on the chin.

Opening up in the second round, the two men exchanged blows until Zaxo landed a straight right to drop Mehmed.

As he began working behind his jab, Zaxo had success with further opportunities arising.

The pace slowed down in the fourth where Zaxo clearly outworked his opponent. The fight finished on the scorecards 40-35 for Dana Zaxo.
