Ted Cheeseman came through a difficult battle with American Carson Jones to claim the WBA International super welterweight belt.
Jones laid it on Cheeseman in the opening five rounds, bloodying his opponent’s nose and landing at several points.
As the veteran began to slow down though, Cheeseman began to assert himself and there were several ill-tempered moments including when Carson whacked Cheeseman in the back of the head after the bell.
Jones managed a second wind in the ninth round though and was close to finishing Cheeseman after catching him with a crunching right hook.
But Cheeseman proved he could take the best Jones had and was given the nod from all three judges after ten rounds.
Reece Bellotti successfully defended his commonwealth featherweight title with a patient display against veteran Ben Jones.
The Watford local put Jones down in the fourth round when his opponent took a knee after some painful body shots.
Bellotti continued to target the body, but opened the sixth with a big right that stunned Jones and sent him crashing. Jones beat the count, but the referee wisely called time.
Knockout of the night – Nick Webb
Heavyweight Nick Webb ended a lengthy absence from the ring with a devastating knockout of Ante Verunica in the third round.
Webb looked rusty in the opening rounds against a busy Verunica, but it did not take long for the 30-year-old to find his feet.
And once he did, he unleashed a crunching right hand that connected onto Verunica’s temple and sent him crashing to the canvas.
The rest of the night
Gamal Yafai opened the night with his third stoppage in a row against Jose Hernandez.
The fight was nothing more than a warm up for the WBC international super-bantamweight champion, who takes on fellow Brit Gavin McDonnell next month.
Super flyweight Charlie Edwards and super bantamweight Sean McGoldrick both earned quick stoppages on the night.
McGoldrick finished Michael Barnor in the third round while Ricky Little did not even make it to the first bell against a destructive Edwards.
Super featherweight Paul Butler was taken the distance by Jefferson Vargas, but eventually several crushing body blows ended the Spaniard’s resistance in the eighth round.
Felix Cash moved to 8-0 with a fifth-round stoppage against James Hagenimana. It was a composed performance and after dropping Hagenimana early on, a succession of painful hooks to the head and body prompted the referee to call off the contest.
