Mauricio Lara vs. Josh Warrington 2 Result
Headingley Rugby League Stadium, Leeds, England 4/9/21
(by Kristian von Sponneck @boxen247)
Mauricio Lara TD2 Josh Warrington
Fight Notes: After repeated head-butts from Warrington, a nasty cut opened up on Lara’s eyelid. The doctor advised in-between round 2 and 3 that Lara could not continue, and as 4 rounds had not been completed, the result was a technical draw. If 4 rounds had been completed, it would have gone to the judges scorecards. This was not to be.
Hopefully they can do it for a third bout.
Katie Taylor W PTS UD 10 Jennifer Han
(Undisputed Female Lightweight Titles)
10x 2 Minutes
Fight Notes: The bout went the 10 round distance with Taylor winning every round with the score 100-89 x3. Taylor was credited for a knock down in round 8, but on replay you could see Han was off balance with Taylors head coming underneath Han’s shoulder.
It was a frustrating night for Taylor in a scrappy affair with Han making it difficult for Taylor to land clean.
Conor Benn W PTS UD 12 Adrian Granados
WBA Continental Welterweight Title
10x 3 Minutes
Fight Notes: Benn looked much improved in this bout and probably learned more from this than all the others combined. Benn was the stronger, harder puncher and quicker, even though it never looked like he was going to knock out Granados.
At times, it appeared that Granados had more to give, showing glimpses of being able to connect on Benn. He didn’t, and seemed happy to make it through to the final bell.
The judges scores were all in favour of Benn, by scores of 100-90, 99-91 and 97-93.
Maxi Hughes W PTS UD 12 Jovanni Straffon
IBO World Lightweight Title
12x 3 Minutes
Fight Notes: Maxi Hughes put on a boxing display and was punch perfect in beating Straffon. In round 5, Straffon was nearly stopped as Hughes had him going with the referee close to stopping the bout. He got through the crisis but was beaten round after round.
Maxi Hughes is the new IBO world lightweight champion.
Ebanie Bridges W PTS 8 Mailys Gangloff
8x 2 Minutes
Fight Notes: After Bridges starting well, she lowered her workrate as Gangloff came into the fight. Gangloff seemed to have done enough to win the decision but yet again, another odd decision. Referee Steve Grey’s scorecard was 77-76 in favour of Bridges. The DAZN commentary team had Gangloff the winner as well.
Hopey Price W TKO 2 Zahid Hussain
(IBO International Title)
Fight Notes: Hussain was down at the end of the 1st round and in the 2nd round. Referee waved the fight off at the time of 2:33 of the 2nd round.
Jack Bateson W PTS 6 Felix Garcia
6x 3 Minutes
Fight Notes: The bout went the 6 round distance with Bateson winning on points. Referee Mark Lyson scored the bout 58-56.
