Having seen his former matchmaker, Dean Powell, pass away this past week Chisora seemed intent of fighting for a man he was close to and made it known from the off. Although tears seemed to be close to his face on his walk in, Chisora went out and made a statement as he stopped Gerber, becoming the first man to do so.
Also in the UK Carl Spencer (4-0, 3) took his first decision victory as he over came Carl Baker (9-7, 6) via a 6 round points decision in a bout that we dubbed "The Battle of Carl's".
The European Heavyweight action wasn't just in the UK with two bouts in Ukraine. These saw the unbeaten Vladimir Tereshkin (17-0-1, 8) swiftly dispatching Laszlo Toth (19-10, 13) whilst Ivan Tkachenko (1-0, 1) came out on top in a battle of debutants, stopping Denys Nedashkovskyy (0-1).
Across the Atlantic, to the US, Nathan Luis Rosa (1-0, 1) made the perfect start to his career taking out John Schimon (1-2) in just 63 seconds. Although it was a great for Rosa the key US action happened in Washington as Charles Martin (10-0, 8) overcame Vincent Thompson (13-1, 2). With the unbeaten men colliding someone's "0 had to go" though few would have expected Martin to have such an easy nights work with Vincent.
