from New Era boxing club, Carl Broughton. This was over three two minute rounds and Patterson went to work from the off, putting Broughton under pressure and catching him with beautiful clean shots but also taking shots on the way in.
This was a really tough battle for both as they gave it their all and as the bout continued it was really hard to call as the bell rang, but it was Broughtin who got the raised hand on another split decision.
Bout 12 featured Ben Rowark going up against Welsh international G Warburton from Dyffrn ABC. This was going to be a fantastic contest over three three minute rounds, and both kids soon got the measure of each other.
They proceeded to put on a brilliant performance with the bout shifting one way then the other, but it was clear Rowark was having more success with his punches, catching Warburton with nice shots and as the bell rang at the end of round three they both embraced with mutual respect for each other ahead of a welldeserved unanimous win for Rowark.
Bout 13 was Chris Bowes against Hamin Mahmood. Bowes was the taller boxer with Mahmood shorter and stockier, and both went to town on Bowes keeping it straight and long with Mahmood slipping and throw hooks as he exploded forward.
Both boxers were doing well, but Mahmood’s shots had a bit more sting in them and this resulted in Bowes taking an eight count in round two.
The shot was bang on target and not many would have recovered from such a punch but Bowes went straight back in there and tried to put it on Mahmood as the fight ended.
It was another close contest but the eight count swayed the judges in favour of Mahmood, who won on another split.
The last contest of the evening was a super heavyweight bout with both boxers making their debut.
These lads were towering over the referee as MBBC’s Stefan Singer was against Mike Onabanjo from Stockport College.
Round one saw them start as they meant to go on with both lads throwing big bombs at each other.
The contest shifted one way then back, and both lads were big units and tired as the bout went on. Just as we neared the end of the second round, Onabanjo caught Singer and the referee jumped in to give another eight count for the MBBC boxer, but he was fine and they went back to war.
By the end of the third round, both boxers had earned the respect of the packed audience and the winner was awarded to Onabanjo in what was a fantastic battle.
It ended a fantastic MBBC show, who now look to kick on for the rest of 2017.
