ZELFA BARRETT W PTS UD 12 BRUNO TARIMO
(Manchester, England) (Southport, Australia)
Fight Notes: The pattern of the fight was Tarimo on the front foot, throwing bunces of punches, but Barrett landing the hard counters and controlling the fight from this position. In round 3 Tarimo was down courtessy of a hard left counter. Tarimo made the count. From round 8, Tarimo was tiring and was not on the back foot as much, Barrett on the attack more on the front foot and still landing hard. Tarimo never tried through to the final bell where he finished on the front foot. Barret won the bout by 12 round unanimous decision by scores of 117-110 x2 and 116-111. Barrett was the much taller fighter and Tarimo has mentioned that he may move down in weight where possibly he may be more suited.

(Saint-Maur, France) (Little Lever, England)

Cullen was cut by an accidental clash of heads but did not worsen over the bout. Cullen was repeatedly getting caught with hard punches and was dropped by a hard left to the body in round 6. He just made the count but the referee waved off the bout with Cullen having a suspected broken rib. Time of the stoppage was 1:11 of round 6.

Round-by-round live fight notes:
Round 1/ Parker takes the round landing the most meaningful punches, notably a hard right hand.
Round 2/ Chisora comes out with intent, the fight is alive but Parker is landing heavy and especially on the ropes at the end of the round with Chisora in trouble. Parker very sharp.
Round 3/ Chisora in big trouble to the point of steadying himself in the corner to not go down. Then Chisora is back in it, firing back and even on the front foot.
Round 4/ Chisora at the end of it and given a standing 8 count from the referee. All looks over with Chisora in the corner then Chisora springs to life and goes at Parker landing well.
Round 5/ More toe-to-toe action with Parker having the advantage but with Chisora still in it, game, and fighting back.
Round 6/ More again from both, parker takes the round but Parker appears to be fading, or at least not as strong and quick as prior.
Round 7/ Chisora jabbing well then gets caught and goes down. Chisora just beats the count, takes refuge to the corner then comes to life to have Parker in trouble.
Round 8/ Both very tired but Chisora gets caught again and Chisora is down, only held up by the ropes. Standing eight given and he takes refuge to the ropes again to the end of the round.
Round 9/ Referee was about to stop the with Chisora in big trouble, but, and again, Chisora fires back. Both very tired.
Round 10/ More toe-to-toe action with Chisora still in it, and still both tired. Parker seems ahead on points.
Round 11/ Chisora jabbing with Parker looking for the chopping right. Chisora desperately tired.
Round 12/ Both exhausted, both firing, both trying to end it. It was good to see both made it to the last bell after immense effort from both gladiators.
