STEPHEN FOSTER JNR – Suffered only his 2nd defeat of his 26 fight career on Saturday when he was beaten on points by Alex Arthur in an great effort for the WBO interim world Super-Featherweight title. Even though it was a loss, the manner of the defeat - which was very close – will have wiped away the doubts over Stephen which surrounded his other loss to Derry Mathews. After the fight Alex was quoted in the Scottish Sunday mail that Stephen ‘ could not break an egg’ , so we went home and watched the replay of the referee knocking Arthur through the ropes in the 11TH round and sending him into a 15 second break-dance.
MICHEAL GOMEZ – Starts back training today since taking a break to get married after his last fight which was a loss to Carl Johansson for the British title fight. Mike is still looking to become a champion again and after another win would be happy to challenge for the British again or even go back to Scotland to prove that his KO win over Alex Arthur was no fluke.
