Sam Maxwell W PTS UD 12 Akeem Ennis-Brown

(British & Commonwealth Super Lightweight Titles)

12x 3 Minutes

Fight Notes: Ennis-Brown ROBBED. In a scrappy affair where heads clashed, Ennis-Brown was cut in round 4 and Maxwell in round 9 from accidental head-clashes. Ennis-Brown seemed well ahead only for the three judges to award the fight 116-113 x2 and 115-114, all for Maxwell.

Covering the fight in the studio, Carl Frampton had Ennis-Brown a winner by five points with Steve Bunce agreeing. I had it slightly closer with Ennis-Brown three points ahead but a clear winner.

Maxwell said: “I’d give him a rematch. He’s a good competitor, but it would be the same result again. I’ve got the beating of him. A lot of people wanted me to win and I’m sorry I didn’t get the knockout, but we got the win and that’s the main thing.

“I’m so proud. Me and Steve Maylett have been doing so much in the gym. The lads have been there with me as well for all of the hard sessions, and this is just the start.

“I feel like I’m dreaming. I haven’t boxed in front of a crowd for two years, and I’ve dreamed about it since I was a little kid. It went exactly how I thought it would. I knew he would be a tricky guy, but the judges were scoring the clean shots.”

Liam Davies W TKO 2 Raymond Commey

(Super Flyweight Title)

8x 3 Minutes

Fight Notes: It was Davies all the way from the first bell with Davies finally knocking Commey down in the 2nd round. The referee immediately waved off the bout with the time of the stoppage being 2:52.
