Live on Channel 5 there was numerous stoppages, and a controversial draw in the final fight of the night.
Two months have passed since Hennessy Sports packed out the Coventry Skydome, and tonight the stands were packed again louder than before. The undercard action was live on YouTube, and then the feautred main events were live from 10 o clock live on channel 5. The first main event saw Shakan Pitters take on Reece Cartwright for the vacant WBC International Light Heavyweight title, and the second main event was contested between Tyler Denny and River Wilson Bent for the vacant English title.
Shakan Pitters vs Reece Cartwright
In a close fought battle, both men left it all in the ring with Cartwright starting in superbly fashion, but Pitters from the third round came back into the contest and stamped his authority on the fight. In dramatic fashion there was a huge stoppage for the Birmingham man (Shakan). Pitters won the vacant WBC International Light Heavyweight Title.
River Wilson Bent vs Tyler Denny
The final fight of the night, was a feisty encounter between two local men with a lot of animosity and heat in the build up. Again, the fight was another close contest and in the seventh round, the referee stopped the fight due to a bad cut on the head of River Wilson Bent. The fight went to the scorecards, and was judged to be a draw, with either man taking one of the judges scorecards and the third card scoring the bout even,
Kaisee Benjamin vs Andreas Maier
Kaisee Benjamin in his last fight produceda body shot stoppage, and this was a carbon copy of that fight. After a cagey opening round, Kaisee established himself as a force and drilled some crisp body shots which took its toll on Maier. Surely Benjamin is on the brink of an English title fight.
Tommy Welch vs Kristian Kirilov
Another gladiator who fought on the last card in Coventry two months ago was Tommy Welch, and the young heravyweight that night pushed for the stoppage which never came. But tonight this all changed within 45 seconds of the opening round, with Welch landing thudding blows and his opponent taking the knee.
Stephen McKenna vs Richmond Djarberg
'The Hitman' and his brother Aaron McKenna, have both been singled out as stars for the future, and future champions. Within 40 seconds of the opening round, McKenna, once again, ran over to his opponent and backed his opponent up onto the ropes. Once Djarberg was on the ropes, McKenna hit him with everything he had and the referee stepped in to end the action.
Elsewhere on the card there were victories for Aaron McKenna, Brett McGinty, Michael Hennessy Jr, Idris Virgo, Danny Quartermaine and Scott Melvin all by the referee's points decision.
