A great outdoor stadium show last weekend at Craven Park in Hull leading to some cracking action with the highlight for P4P being Kell Brook’s stoppage win over Carson Jones at odds of 6/1.
Kell Brook dominated from the first bell and now we await a big announcement for his next opponent in September.
My feeling is it could be out of Marcos Maidana, Paulie Malignaggi or Victor Ortiz. We will soon find out!!!
Topping the bill last week, it was great to see Olympic Gold medallist Luke Campbell win his first paid fight as he stopped Andy Harris in the opening round with a very confident display, now we can look forward to seeing plenty of action from Campbell on our screens in the coming months, especially with promoter Eddie Hearn promising a lot of fights in a short space of time.
Other fights that night saw Welshman Lee Selby win a majority decision on the judges scorecard over Viorel Simion.
Finally Derry Matthews threw, what was probably the punch of his career to sensationally beat Tommy Coyle in the 10th round, having been well behind in the fight.
This evening the attention turns to Wembley Arena for a show that will be broadcast live on our screens via Boxnation.
Britain’s Dereck Chisora and unbeaten American Malik Scott will headline in the capital, in what could turn out a cracking fight with a great clash of styles, as the aggressive forward fighting Dereck Chisora will look to brawl with the more silky Malik Scott, who will look to fight at range staying behind a very useful jab.
I for one will have a very keen interest here with a P4P selection.
Unfortunately Carl Frampton has had to pull out of his fight at Wembley due to a reoccurring ear problem but we do have another great fight as Gary O’Sullivan and Billy Joe Saunders fight it out for the WBO International middleweight title in a fight that will see a first loss for one of these unbeaten fighters.
Billy Joe Saunders looks to have a great career ahead of him and World title shots won’t be far off, if he can take care of Gary O’Sullivan on Saturday and then another unbeaten fighter in John Ryder in September.
Until Next Saturday.
All The Best
