Default Ftm Sports/vip Sky Boxing Event 06.07.2007

Another cracking event which continued to set the standards for other TV promoters to follow . The 9 fight card was headlined by a Ian Napas win for the British Bantamweight title , the VIP fighters fared as follows :-

MARK THOMPSON- Lost TKO8 but really was a winner tonight when he showed the viewing public that he is a future champion. Mark was actually level on the judges scorecards after 7 rounds which had seen both him and opponent Vincent Vuma visit the floor badly - Mark at the end of the 4th and Vuma at the end of the 5th to a perfect left hook to the body.The step up in both experience and weight was to tell in the end , but Mark will have learned a lot from this fight and has proved he is more than ready to compete at domestic title level , he will not be set free to challenge the British Welterweights where unbelievable he is not yet ranked in the top 20.

ALI NUUMBEMBE - Won pts6 against a durable opponent that gave Ali the chance to shake off his ring rust following his long lay off after beating Kevin Anderson for the Commonwealth title early this year. We are currently looking for an acceptable voluntary challenger before we have to face the mandatory Phillip Klotey , maybe Matthew Hatton will step up to the plate ????

STUART McFADGEN -Moved to 6-0 after a close points win against Taziff Khan that again saw both boxers visit the canvas. Khan in the first and Stuart in the 3rd when he was dropped badly from a right hook coming out of a clinch with his hands down , like Thompson he will learn from this fight.

ALEX MATVIENKO- Remains unbeaten after 9 but had to settle for a draw with Martin Marshall after the referee docked him a point for low blows in the last round . Alex spent the whole contest chasing after Marshall and everyone in the room apart from the referee thought he won every round.

SCOTT MITCHELL- After his debut loss 2 weeks ago in Bolton he came back with a solid performance to gain a win against Dave Ingleby in what was a well matched fight.

I think the Thompson fight showed what a risky sport boxing is and how you are just one punch away from being a failure or a success.

Round 4 - Mark dropped badly and if unable to continue it would have been described as a stupid decision by his team to let him have the fight he asked for.
Round 5 - Vuma dropped with a perfect body punch and if it was not for the bell he could have been finished. Everyone would have said then that it was a great pick by the team to let Mark take such a step up
Round 8 - Fight stopped with Mark under presure and due to the gutsy and brave performance it has been deemed acceptable and a valuable learning experience for Mark.

It really is hard to get it right all the tima , especially when your lads are having a fight and not just fighting hand picked guys that will learn them nothing.

One of the best prospect performances in years. But what I really want to know is will Vuma be back to face Moorsey, or indeed what will be Jamies next move?
