Default Congratulations Ian Napa!

Finally Ian Napa has won a championship, after a close but well-deserved decision over Jason Booth. After all the close fights he has been on the wrong-end of, and all the times he's had to give up size and strength to his opponent, it was so great to finally see him triumph and bring home a belt. Nice one Napa

Also, Mark Thompson despite his eventual loss, contested a great war with Vincent Vuma and more than held his own before the stoppage. With some more experience under his belt, the bravery he displayed tonight should stand him in good stead against domestic opposition.

I didn't see the fight but Napa def. deserves a title for all the effort he's put in over the years.

Napa reminds me of James Toney with that shoulder roll.

No James only has prime cuts on his rolls.

Yup, Napa has some very underrated skills. Im happy as larry to see him get his hands on the british title finally, cos I hve seen him on the end of some utterly awful decisions in the past.

I didnt see the fight myself as I dont have SKY, & didnt go up to my friends house to watch the fight as I thought it would be the usual distance fight, with Napa being robbed. Im happy I was wrong about the outcome though.

Best wishes to napa for the future, until he fights a scot that is

Napa has some chin too, only Culshaw ever KO'ed him!

Booth only landed because he had workrate but Napa's body shots were tiring him out.

Good fight and Napa deserves the title but booth looks shot.

The mark thompson v vuma fight was great and in few years time we may see thompson fighting good at domestic level. some battering he took, great bodshot though.
