Maxi Hughes shocks world-rated Jono Carroll

In a surprising upset, unheralded Maxi Hughes (21-5-2, 4 KOs) took a ten round unanimous decision over former world title challenger and world-rated Jono Carroll (18-2-1, 4 KOs) in a lightweight bout headlining a closed-door event at Production Park Studios in Wakefield, England. Coming off a knockout over former world champion Scott Quigg in March, Carroll had his normal high workmate, but Hughes landed the better shots to win 96-95, 96-95, 97-93. Carroll, rated IBF #7 and WBC #12 at super featherweight, was a 21:1 favorite.

Unbeaten junior welterweight “Sugar” Sean McComb (11-0, 5 KOs) outpointed Siar Ozgul (15-5, 3 KOs) over ten rounds. Scores were 99-92, 97-93, 97-93. McComb announced he will campaign at lightweight following this fight.

  • Decent main event. The undercard had me falling asleep though. Thought it was funny that Hughes jokingly called out Mayweather after the fight and said “give the fans the fight they want to see” haha.
