Saturday, 23 January 2010 » Brentwood Fight Night »


Frank Maloney put together a packed card of no fewer than 13 contests at the Brentwood Centre on Friday night. Maloney has a number of very exciting prospects on his books and the proceedings proved to be compelling throughout. I was ringside to capture the action for several clients.

In the most explosive bout of the evening, up-and-coming Flyweight Ashley Sexton entered the ring and went head-to-head with his fired-up opponent Usman Ahmed even before the first bell had sounded. Less than three minutes later, Sexton landed a stiff right to Ahmed's jaw and the fight was over, bagging the English title for the man from Cheshunt...



Frank Maloney was certainly pleased with Sexton's showing and posed for a quick picture at the end of the bout...



Hammersmith Super-Middleweight George Groves boasts an outstanding amateur record and had won his first seven professional bouts before Friday's outing. Here he waits in the neutral corner after sending his opponent, Bulgarian Gregor Sarohanian, to the canvas at the start of the third round, improving his record to 8(6)-0(0)-0...



EDIT: Indeed this was the image that the Hammersmith & Kensington Times used to illustrate the story of Groves' victory...



There was a cracking, old-fashioned ding-dong that would have graced any show between Harrow's Akaash Bhatia and West Ham's Mickey Coveney. In a six-rounder that could have gone either way, Bhatia triumphed after some good work in the later rounds...



Travis Dickinson found himself up against highly experienced campaigner Hastings Rasani in a Cruiserweight contest. Birtley's Dickinson showed that he has true potential as he overcame the Zimbabwean on points, landing some big shots in the process...



Hackney's Larry Olubamiwo sent out a strong message to the Heavyweight division with a very confident performance, despatching Scott Belshaw to the canvas four times in the first round. The fight was waved off and Larry now looks forward to some longer and higher profile encounters...



Brighton's Ben Murphy and Morden's Lee Cook put on an hugely entertaining show for the Southern Area Lightweight title. Murphy prevailed after ten intense rounds...



The main fight saw a controversial split-decision as Doncaster's Jamie McDonnell wrested the British Bantamweight Title from Hackney's Ian Napa. Many observers were convinced that Napa had done enough to retain his Lonsdale belt but the judges saw it differently and it was McDonnell that celebrated when the scorecards were read out...



EDIT: The Hackney Gazette ran with this image to illustrate their story by boxing writer Ken Selleck. Here's the tearsheet...



To round off this post, here's a general view of some Dickinson vs Rasani action taken with a Lensbaby. It's not something I pull out of the camera bag very often but it can give an interesting result from time to time...
