43-year-old former heavyweight title challenger Matt Skelton (23-5, 20 KOs) ended a three fight losing streak with a fifth round KO over journeyman Lee Swaby (25-27-2, 11 KOs) on Friday night at the famed York Hall outside London. Following his loss to then WBA world champion Ruslan Chagaev, Skelton beat Paolo Vidoz for the European championship, but then suffered consecutive stoppage losses to Martin Rogan, Francesco Pianeta, and Kubrat Pulev, who entered that bout with just four pro fights under his belt.
In the main event, Lenny Daws (21-1-2, 9 KOs) won a hard fought ten round TKO when Steve Williams (9-1, 3 KOs) didn’t come out for round eleven. Daws retained his British light welterweight belt.
Also Bradley Pryce (30-8, 18 KOs) returned to welterweight for the forst time since 2005 to avenge an eight-year old loss to Ted Bami (26-7, 13 KOs) with a second round KO.
