Sam Eggington overcame Przemyslaw Zysk despite tiring in the later rounds of the Sky headliner.
The Brummie, nicknamed “The Savage”, was on course for an early win before Zysk rallied.
A few dodgy rounds where Eggington looked tired paled into insignificance at the final bell. Judges favored the aggression of Eggington 119-109 [twice] and 117-111 on the cards.
Adam Azim, cheered on by Amir Khan, blew away Belgian no-hoper Anthony Loffet in 66 seconds.
Azim, clearly levels above Loffet who hadn’t faced anyone with a decent record, smashed through what he was up against.
Showing awesome speed, Azim had Sky Sports analysts gum-flapping about world titles. Even though Azim improves to 5-0, the hype needs to die down until he faces a solid opponent.
Tyler Denny claimed the English middleweight title at the fourth attempt with a split decision win over River Wilson-Bent. Denny defeated the previously unbeaten Wilson-Bent after the pair shared a draw back in November.
Both men gave all for ten rounds, but it was Denny who wanted it that touch more. Judges at ringside Steve Gray scored it 96-94 to Wilson-Bent, while Terry O’Connor [97-93] and Kevin Parker [96-93] gave it to Denny.
New Boxxer signing Shakiel Thompson made a winning start on the platform. Thompson dominated Bartosz Glowacki over six rounds. Thompson won every round on referee Chris Dean’s scorecard to improve to 8-0.
The newest member of the women’s featherweight division, Olympic medal winner Karriss Artingstall, made a successful debut – as expected.
Artingstall had easily too much in her locker for Vaida Masiokaite and won every session of six.
