Saunders Smashes Fletcher In 2

Commonwealth title belt

Billy Joe Saunders continued to impress and progress after stopping Australian Jarrid Fletcher in two rounds at the York Hall this Friday (September 15).


In what many perceived as a tough test for the Commonwealth middleweight champion against a fellow Olympian and unbeaten pro, Saunders had other ideas.


After warming up in the opener, Saunders, now 15-0(10), uncorked a beauty of a left cross that wobbled the handy looking Fletcher in round two.


The Aussie, who beat James DeGale on the way to a Commonwealth Games gold medal in 2006, tried in vain to recover as Saunders poured it on with just over a minute to go in the round, but was forced to the deck under a barrage of punches.


Rising to his feet, maybe a bit too quickly, the 28-year-old challenger wasn’t allowed a moment’s respite from the challenger as Saunders follow up had referee Ian John Lewis stepping in to stop the fight despite the visitor’s protests.


Fletcher drops to 12-1(7) whilst Billy Joe looks more and more impressive every fight having come off a punch perfect twelve round points win over the dangerous Bradley Pryce in May.


Bradley Skeete was also in action as he toughed out a ten round points win over Peter McDonagh that will have tought the Penge fighter more in one fight than the whole of his career thus thus far.


Billy Morgan W Pts 80-72 Youssef Al Hamidi


Steve O’Meara W TKO 3 Tony Randell


Mitchell Smith W Pts 40-36 Pavels Senkovs


Frank Buglioni W TKO 2 Joe Rea
