WBO #15 super welterweight Hamzah Sheeraz (12-0, 8 KOs) successfully defended his WBO Euro belt with a tenth round TKO over Guido Nicolas Pitto (26-8-2, 8 KOs) on Saturday night behind closed doors at Church House in London, England. Sheeraz seemed headed to a one-sided decision, but got a referee’s stoppage after a series of unanswered punches at 1:11 of the final stanza.
WBO #1 jr welterweight Jack Catterall (27-0, 13 KOs) took a one-sided ten round decision over Abderrazak Houya (14-3, 2 KOs) ahead of his challenge for the WBO world title.

Unbeaten heavyweight David Adeleye (4-0, 4 KOs) scored a second round KO over Danny Whittaker (4-2, 0 KOs). Adeleye dropped Whittaker twice in round two before the fight was stopped. Time 2:09.
