Fowler,Eggington,Benn And Jonas Post Wins In Liverpool

Local prospect Anthony Fowler extended his unbeaten record to 6-0 at the Echo Arena in Liverpool on Saturday night when he systematically broke down Londoner Ryan Toms inside two one sided rounds of an eight round bout.


The 2016 Rio Olympian controlled the fight from the opening bell, picking off his tentative, slower opponent with crisp counters, jabs and right hands. Toms, 15-15-3-(9), was better than his record indicated but he failed to close the gap and waited too long to get his shots off. Fowler controlled the entire fight and finally got the job done in impressive fashion when he sent Toms to the canvas with a crippling right hand body shot in the second round.


Speaking to Sky Sports after the fight Fowler said: "It was a good shot to finish it, but I wanted to go the rounds in there. I think he could have got up there, I wanted a bit more of a fight.


Fowler added: "I’m like a man possessed and I’m so grateful to fight in my home city,"


On the same card former European welterweight champ Sam Eggington made a successful debut at 154lbs by taking out Hungarian import Achilles Szabo inside two rounds. Eggington decked Szabo twice before the fight was stopped.


In a welterweight bout Londoner Connor Benn laboured at times and looked to have made hard work of Birmingham based journeyman Chris Thurman, 13-9-2, until he unleashed a well timed left uppercut to finish off the game 33 year-old. Thurman was outclassed but Benn seemed to lack the necessary firepower until unleashing the show stopper.


Promoter Eddie Hearn said afterwards that Benn, who went 11-0, wants to rematch Cedrick Peynaud, who decked him twice last time out before winning on points over six rounds. Benn also decked Peynaud twice.


In female action Natasha Jonas continued her education by stopping the remarkably tough Taoussy L’Hadji in the seventh round.


The 33-year-old did not have it all her own way as L’Hadji contributed to a lively contest until the Liverpool super-featherweight prospect ,rained in a big right hand that had Hadji wobbling, a follow up attack forced the referee to step in and stop the fight.


In other action Tom Farrell, Qais Ashfaq, Bilal Rehman, Scott Fitzgerald and Craig Glover, all posted wins.
