On Saturday evening at Mote Park, Maidstone Boxing Connected provided the fight fans of Kent with an evening of professional boxing which enthralled from start to finish with a mixture of debutants, boxers making a return to the Ring after lengthy absences and those who were making steps towards potential title opportunities in the near future.
Starting the ball rolling was debutant Jimmy Peckham aka El Chapo who sent his fans home happy with a 40/37 points verdict over Langold’s always competitive Luke Middleton.
Zeki Hussain climbed through the ropes following a five year layoff and emerged victorious on the card of referee Lee Cook following an entertaining 4 round bout versus Ricky Leach.
Mick Mills in the opinion of some ringside patrons appeared rather unfortunate to only receive a share of the spoils in his bout with the awkward Victor Edagha however Mick will be pleased to get his first bout in nearly four years under his belt.
In his first appearance in the pro ranks Brooklyn Tilley showed maturity beyond his tender years and boxing to a plan saw him take a 40/38 verdict over Carl Turney who should be commended for his part in a worth watching bout.
Jack Raines maintained his unbeaten record with a 39/37 victory over Neil Rawlinson who had former Central Area Lightweight Champion Kieran Farrell BEM in his corner.
Luke Gibb won every round of his four round bout with Andy Harris with comparative ease with Harris showing considerable resolve to last the course.
Top of the bill saw Danny “The Real Deal” Shannon take every round on the card of referee Chas Coakley against hard as nails Bryn Wain who took everything that was thrown at him and never took a backward step.
Boxing Connected would like to thank all those that supported this event and wish to place on record their appreciation for the co-operation shown by the staff and management of Mote Park.
