Barker batters Hope

Former middleweight title challenger Darren Barker (24-1, 15 KOs) returned 14 months after his defeat against Sergio Martinez with a punishing fourth round TKO over light-punching former Euro titlist Kerry Hope (18-5, 1 KO) on Saturday night at the Olympia in London. Barker dropped Hope with a right hand in round four and Hope’s corner threw in the towel shortly after. Time was 1:05.

IBF #7 welterweight Carson Jones (34-9-3, 24 KOs), who was supposed to be in the main event before his opponent Lee Purdy was injured, instead had to settle for an eight round draw against unheralded Dean Byrne (16-2-1, 6 KOs).

In a clash of unbeaten middleweights, John Ryder (13-0, 8 KOs) stopped Eamonn O’Kane (8-1, 3 KOs) in round eight.
