Michael Roberts of Glasgow decisioned verteran warhorse, Yousef Al Hamidi.
Roberts is a terrific young pro but Al Hamidi, with over forty paid contests, managed to startle him on one or two occasions. The novice pro did enough left hand work to outscore his man but he was made to work when he found himself on the end of some nice hooks at mid range.
Al Hamidi also used every trick in the book and was guilty of using his head and some well timed and flagrant rabbit punching. Regardless, the better man won and Roberts is now 4-0 after a nice learning curve.
The referee scored the contest 59-57.
Jonathan Slowey of Glasgow outpointed Crawley’s Robin Deakin over six two minute rounds.
Slowey mixed in some nice work throughout the contest and basically had it all his way. He countered effectively with the right hook and led with sharp one two combinations which quickly sapped Deakin’s willingness to engage.
Slowey is a cocky southpaw and it will be interesting to watch his progress as the level of opposition improves. He is now 4-0.
Sean Watson, of Fauldhouse, won his professional debut against the experienced Kristian Laight.
Watson, who will campaign as a super bantamweight, took every session and scored with some nice combinations to head and body.
The wine and dine event was delivered by Morrison Promotions and featured plenty of high class action.
