Hughes vs Galahad results
Maxi Hughes scored a majority decision over ex-world ruler Kid Galahad in an enthralling lightweight contest.
Hughes had a point deducted but still managed to get the better of the Sheffield man.
Scores read 114-114, 115-114, and 116-111 in favor of Hughes.
Proving the women’s side of the sport is crying out for fighters above the 147-pound weight division, Terri Harper moved up three weight classes to become world champion again.
The former super-featherweight ruler added 24 pounds to challenge Hannah Rankin for the WBA super welterweight title.
Despite the weight disparity, Harper was no doubt the better fighter, and unlike in the men’s game, the weight didn’t matter.
After ten dominant rounds and a cut opened on Rankin’s eye, Harper won 98-92 [twice] and 97-93 to become a two-weight world titleholder.
Solomon Dacres gave away seventy pounds in weight in a bruising ten-round heavyweight contest against the experienced and stubborn Ariel Esteban Bracamonte.
Dacres was on top for most of the fight but got decent rounds against the tough Argentinian who recently went the distance with Jarrell Miller.
Bracamonte looks out of shape. That’s no secret. But in the ring, he becomes an immovable object for some. Dacres showed off some of his skills as he took a decision win that was never in doubt.
Cruiserweight Cheavon Clarke dominated Marcos Karalitzky as the Argentine found it challenging against the amateur star.
Clarke pummeled Karalitzky in every round, landing bombs at will. It was a credit to the 14-fight South American that he lasted until the fourth round.
Cyrus Pattinson produced a crunching left hand in the sixth round to claim the vacant WBO Continental welterweight title.
Pattinson shipped a big shot from Jorick Luisetto but fired back with his own. On a delayed reaction, Luisetto went down as Pattinson tried to finish the job.
There was no need for further punches, though, as the fight was over when referee Bob Williams stepped in to stop the fight.
At super welterweight, Junaid Bostan halted Anas Isarti in the sixth round. A flurry of punches, beginning with a beauty of a right hand, put Isarti in the corner.
The third man in the ring wasted no time ending the contest.
Rhiannon Dixon went the distance with Edina Kiss to gain a valuable six rounds. The Wigan fighter beat the Hungarian 60-54.
Mohammed Sameer, fighting out of Peterborough, improved to 5-0, winning all four rounds against Dale Arrowsmith.
The middleweight was too slick for the Hyde man. The result was never doubted in the opener.
