Daniel Herbert watches Pauls beat Atherton for win no. 10
HARLOW-BASED Newquay puncher
Brad Pauls moved his unbeaten pro record into double figures with a convincing six-round points win over
William Warburton at Tottenham Green Pools & Fitness.
Middleweight Pauls produced all the quality work, thumping the body especially well, but Atherton’s canny Warburton used his experience to reach the final bell where he lost 60-55 for referee Chas Coakley.
Chunky Palmers Green cruiserweight Nick Parpa walked onto a Dmitrij Kalinovskij right that rocked him in round three before reasserting himself with solid hooks to outscore the Lithuanian, 59-55 on Mr Coakley’s card.
The two other sixes on this Goodwins promotion billed as “Titanium” were less eventful, with referee Lee Cook handing 60-55 verdicts to Seven Kings super-welter
Sean Robinson over Islington’s
Jordan Grannum, and to Hitchin super-lightweight Tom Ansell over Canning Town southpaw Lee Hallett.
Popular Louis Isaacs and Dana Zaxo pleased their fans with points victories that were more eventful than the 40-36 scores suggest.
Long-armed Plymouth Mohamed Mahmoud marked Isaacs under the left eye before the super-lightweight Londoner got inside and subdued him with hooks (Cook refereed). Meanwhile, Hammersmith light-heavy Zaxo had Jevgenijs Andrejevs reeling with clubbing rights but couldn’t quite finish the southpaw Latvian veteran (Coakley refereed).
Hayes super-lightweight Jack Newham looked ahead on points when, in the last of four rounds, a left hook from Newark’s Fonz Alexander sent him crashing face down, his nose bleeding. Referee Cook waved it off immediately and after medical attention Newham was all right, albeit extremely upset at losing his unbeaten record. Only one minute 14 seconds remained.
Two more fours brought 40-37 verdicts from Mr Coakley in favour of Neasden lightweight Jerome Campbell, who showed a good left jab against awkward Dean Evans of Hereford; and Strood heavyweight Louie Darlin, who outworked Grantham debutant Miles Newton Willington.
THE VERDICT Pauls is ready to move up a level.
