In­dus­tri­ous pro­moter Far­rell is a busy man, writes Andy Whit­tle

from ring­side

BUSY Kieran Far­rell BEM pro­moted on the first of three con­sec­u­tive week­ends when at Mid­dle­ton Arena he served up a four-fight of­fer­ing.

Dy­lan Mo­ran was hav­ing only his sec­ond out­ing in the paid ranks, but the south­paw from Dun­gar­van in Ire­land pro­ceeded to hand Barcelona-based Nicaraguan Gei­bo­ord Omier some­thing of a les­son.

Mo­ran bat­tered Omier to such a de­gree that ref­eree-for-the-night Dar­ren Sar­gin­son felt in­clined to bring an end to pro­ceed­ings with 50 sec­onds of the opener still re­main­ing. The bout – in which the out-of-his-depth Omier failed to land one punch wor­thy of note – had been fan­ci­fully slated for six.

A left up­per­cut, hot on the heels of an open­ing left cross from the pop­u­lar Mo­ran, hinted at his in­ten­tions, as did the three con­sec­u­tive body shots that fol­lowed. By the time Omier was res­cued, fur­ther pun­ish­ment had left him nurs­ing a badly blood­ied nose.

The re­main­ing three fights all ran their re­spec­tive dis­tances. First up was Mac­cles­field’s Jake Haigh, who made the best of his nat­u­ral ad­van­tages to se­cure a shutout 60-54 vic­tory over lo­cal

Dar­ryl Sharp who, tena­cious as usual, replied fre­quently enough to make the bout an en­joy­able one through­out.

An­other six, this one fin­ish­ing 60-55, saw Hey­wood’s Lee Clay­ton score his sec­ond con­sec­u­tive points vic­tory. The op­po­nent this time was Hull’s ex­pe­ri­enced Luke Fash, who one formed the im­pres­sion could have given Clay­ton more of a bat­tle had the mood taken him. A 40-36 win­ner was lo­cal first-timer

Con­nor Lynch, who proved too much for Hyde’s Dale Ar­row­smith. Lynch had dom­i­nated the opener, and pulled away again in the last after Ar­row­smith had made a bet­ter fist of it in the two mid­dle rounds.
