In an interesting lightweight fight, Commonwealth titleholder Derry Mathews (35-8-2, 19 KOs) scored an explosive one-punch fourth round TKO over “Trollhunter” Curtis Woodhouse (19-6, 13 KOs) on Saturday night at the Olympia in Liverpool, England. Mathews landed a right hand that dropped Woodhouse and the fight was waved off when Woodhouse got up and reeled around the ring. Time was 1:14.
Woodhouse made headlines outside the ring in March when he used social media to describe his day as he tracked down a Twitter troll, eventually turning up on the troll’s street before getting an apology.
Unbeaten local jr middleweight Liam Smith (15-0-1, 5 KOs) scored a twelve round unanimous decision over Erick Ochieng (14-2, 4 KOs) to claim the vacant British title. Good two-way action throughout, but Smith did more down the stretch to win by scores of 117-112, 117-112, 116-113.
Unbeaten super middleweight “Rocky from Stocky” Fielding (16-0, 9 KOs) annihilated Mohammed Akrong (19-6, 15 KOs) in the first round to win the vacant Commonwealth title. Fielding dropped Akrong with a left hook in the opening seconds, then finished him with his follow up barrage. The fight lasted 65 seconds.
Unbeaten super middleweight Callum Smith (8-0, 6 KOs) blew away Patrick Mendy (14-7-1, 1 KO) in the first round to win the vacant BBBofC English title.
Peter Spencer W4 Matt Seawright (jr welterweight), pro debut for Spencer, Seawright now a dismal 5-82-5, 0 KOs.
