Scott Fitzgerald impressively warms up for Anthony Fowler clash
Scott Fitzgerald defeated Radoslav Mitev on the undercard of the Ted Cheeseman v Sergio Garcia fight in London.
The super-welterweight contender warmed up for a highly anticipated fight in Liverpool next month.
Fitzgerald played the bully against the much smaller Mitev, cutting off the ring and using 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, using 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.
