Michael Hennessy Jr vs Joe Laws

This was a bout between a boxer and a boxer. Hennessey Jr was the accomplished boxer throughout and landed jabs and simple shots with ease, whereas Laws looked for power shots far more often.

Hennessey Jr took the opening round as he outboxed Laws, who looked stronger and more aggressive than Laws but was outworked. Hennessey Jr was having more success in the opening half of the contest, but Laws was still catching him. The second half of the contest began to favour Laws, and he was landed with increasing regularity. Hennessey Jr was having far less success as Laws was able to land as he tired, and the bout ended with the pair wildly exchanging in the last 30 seconds with neither man secure of the win. Both men raised their hands at the conclusion of the contest. They also received a good ovation from the crowd.

Referee Bob Williams scored the bout 77-75 in favour of Joe Laws.

Joe Laws wins via Points Decision.

Louis Greene vs Sam Gilley

This bout was for the Commonwealth Boxing Council Super Welter (Greene).

Greene vs Gilley was an excellent back-and-forth bout. Both boxers gave their all across a 12 round bout that swung in favour of both Greene and Gilley at different points in the fight. Greene entered as the champion but was the outsider with most bookmakers. Sam Gilley knocked Louis Greene down in the fifth round, who barely managed to rise to his feet by 10. Greene would have some success particularly in the latter rounds, and the pair of boxers ended trading at the end, similar to the previous bout. Greene and Gilley raised each others hands before the scorecards were announced.

The scorecards read 117-110 118-110 116-111, all in favour of Sam Gilley. It certainly didn’t reflect the commentary, which scored it far closer to Greene.

Sam Gilley wins via Unanimous Decision

Post fight, Sam Gilley said that Louis Greene punches like a train, and mentioned the possibility of a rematch. Both Gilley and Greene were full of praise for each other.

Mikael Lawal vs Isaac Chamberlain

This bout was for the British Cruiserweight Championship (Lawal) and Commonwealth Cruiserweight Championship (Vacant).

The main event started just after 10:25 p.m. This was later than Catterall vs Linares, although this didn’t stop the main events clashing. You can read the results for that event here.

This was another case of boxer vs puncher, and inside vs outside styles. Lawal took the opening round, but Chamberlain’s jab was beginning to land in the second. Chamberlain fought in Lawal’s style in the following rounds, bullying Lawal up close and pinning him down. Lawal was having little success dealing with Chamberlain both up close and at range, and the mid rounds became a little cagier and uglier between the pair. Chamberlain continued to dominate right through to the twelfth round, with Lawal not even celebrating at the final bell.

The scorecards read: 119-111, 118-111 (x2) in favour of Isaac Chamberlain.
