Newport Centre Oct 30th Quick Results – Promoter Jamie Sanigar and his Sanigar Events were at the Newport Center in Wales, United Kingdom for a full night of boxing that saw the main ights air on Eurosport. The show was considered a bit watered down when it lost the main event of 10 rounds in the Cruiserweight division between Craig Kennedy (12-0) and Benki Mwakalebela (13-1) due to a failed medical exam, but as usual the fighters saved the day.
The most notable fight on the card may have been the debut of super flyweight Andrew Selby, who scored a 4th round stoppage victory over Haji Juma. Selby is the younger brother of IBF world featherweight champion Lee Selby, who is coming off a stellar October 14th title defense against experienced former world champion Fernando Montiel of Mexico.
The featured 10 round bout saw BBBofC Welsh 154 pound champion Barrie Jones stop challenger Jamie Lilley in te 6th round of their bout.
