Unbeaten welterweight Ekow Essuman (15-0, 6 KOs) scored an eighth round TKO over Chris Jenkins (22-4-3, 8 KOs) to seize the British and Commonwealth welterweight titles. A barrage of punches from Essuman promoted a referee’s stoppage. Time :43.
Super bantamweight Chris Bourke (10-0, 6 KOs) successfully defended his WBC International title against James Beech Jr (12-2, 2 KOs) via ten round unanimous decision. Scores were 100-90, 99-91, 98-92.
Is Adeleye’s confidence so shot after barely beating a fighter with a record of 10-21 that they had to put him in with a 3-9 guy?
Beech looked very rusty-horrid performance
