The Take Over – Camden Centre, Kings Cross London
Mickey Helliet of Hellraiser Boxing kicked off his 3 year broadcast deal with London live in brilliant fashion. Co-promoted with Mo Prior of Warrior Boxing, the fans at the Camden and watching on London Live were treated to some great all action fights.
To start the night off was fight between Joshua Ejakpovi known as Hollywood Josh and Terry George who were both making their professional debuts. Joshua’s power was too much for George sending him to the canvas 3 times and the referee calling time to the action in the 2nd round.
Asinia Byfield kept his unbeaten record and moved to 5 - 0 with a routine points decision against Mick Mills.
The main event for the super middleweight southern area title lived up to the pre-fight needle between Darryell Williams and Richard Horton. With fireworks from the 1st bell, Darryell looked sharp and on form landing crisp, fast combinations. He simply had too much for Richard as the referee had to step into wave off the contest in the 1st round. After spending the summer in the states sparring he has shown that he has taken his boxing to a new level, Darryell will certainly want to push for more titles soon.
Elliott Matthews put on a superb performance against Ferenc Hofne. Elliott started off strong behind his southpaw stance, landing heavy combinations against his visiting opponent. With the sustained attack from Elliott, Ferenc was being broken down. Eventually a cut opened up over Ferenc eye and the referee had then seen enough to call a halt to the contest with Elliott moving to 15-0-1 still remaining undefeated. Since this show Elliott has now earned his chance to challenge Nick Blackwell for the British Middleweight title in Bristol on November 14th.
Cruiserweight Darius Skop took his professional record to 5-0 with a points win over visiting opponent Gyorgy Novak. Novak was down in the 1st round and both fighters were deducted two points for holding.
Light heavyweight Onder “Little Mike” Ozgul won with a 3rd round TKO against Wayne Reed to improve his record to 6-0.
Ramesh “Rambo” Ahmadi came up next with a great fight against Craig Derbyshire. Set for the 4 rounds the judges’ scorecards were needed with Ramesh getting the nod to move to 3-0.
One to certainly watch out for is Islington’s Aarron “The Marksman” Morgan. It only took Aarron 3 rounds to dispatch of Istvan Kiss from Hungray to move to 9-0 with 7 KO’s.
Slough’s welterweight Tommy Tear extended his unbeaten record to 10-0 with a points win over Sheffield’s Ryan Hardy. Tommy now challenges Tamuka Mucha for the southern area title in December.
To finish off the night was the professional debut of Islington’s Jordan Grannum against William Warburton. Jordan did all the right things in order to take the nod on the judges’ cards to start off his pro career.
