Volosi­nas, who was step­ping be­tween the ropes for the 85th time. There was a set­back of sorts for Beech, how­ever, when he picked up a cut above the right eye mid­way through the sec­ond ses­sion from a punch, ac­cord­ing to tri­al­ist ref­eree Chris Dean. This didn’t faze Beech, though, and a good patch­ing-up job by dad Jimmy in the cor­ner helped to en­sure the wound didn’t worsen. Mr Messer tal­lied 40-36 from ring­side.

Burnt­wood new starter Troy Coleman won 40-36 against Lyd­ney’s heav­ier Lewis van Poetsch. Tall and lean, the well-sup­ported debu­tant be­gan with a left up­per­cut and a glanc­ing right, be­fore go­ing to the body. De­spite pick­ing up a cou­ple of warn­ings for trans­gres­sions from ref­eree Martin Wil­liams, and fall­ing vic­tim to the odd counter, there was only ever go­ing to be one out­come. Coleman wasn’t the only Burnt­wood boxer to se­cure a shutout 40-36 win, as Dani Hodges mir­rored his achieve­ment in the fourt­wos show-opener against Poland’s So­nia Klos.

Hav­ing had her head snapped back by a nice left jab to­wards the end of the first, Klos sel­dom threat­ened in a bout over­seen by Mr Wil­liams. Lo­cal one-fight novice Levi Fer­gu­son en­sured the home fans went home happy by best­ing Is­ling­ton’s Jor­dan Gran­num,

for whom this was his 19th out­ing of the year. Cut­ting off the ring and back­ing Gran­num up early doors, Fer­gu­son was quick to open up a lead. Al­though Gran­num made a bet­ter fist of it in the third, a burst to the body and a nice left up­per­cut con­trib­uted to Fer­gu­son tak­ing the last. Mr Wil­liams marked 40-36 for tri­al­ist Dean.

THE VER­DICT Cartwright makes it five wins in a row, and nabs a ti­tle to boot.


RE­BUILD­ING: Cartwright has now notched ve wins since his lone loss last year
