Arguably the most important of the bouts was in the UK where former Commonwealth champion Sam Sexton (19-3, 7) scored a dominant andclear victory over disgraced drugs cheat Larry Olubamiwo (10-5, 9). Olubamiwo, one of the men who should have been severely punshed for his cheating, was dropped in round 2 and failed to win any of the other 5 rounds in a performance that suggest he's now going to have to retire rather than be allowed to continue in our great sport. Well done Mr Sexton you've made us in to big fans!
Staying in the UK there was also a victory for novice professional Andy Jones (2-0) who over-came the tough Remigijus Ziausys (20-57-5, 10) in a 4 round shut out. There was little arguing Jones won here though it is worth noting that he was 30lbs heavier than Ziausys who came in well inside the Cruiserweight limit.
Whilst the British fights both went the schedule Frenchman David Spilmont (3-2, 1) needed just a round to get rid of Hungarian Gyorgy Novak (3-2, 1) who entered the bout on the back of 3 straight wins.
Over the Atlantic another Heavyweight bout went the distance as Troy Talbot (3-1, 1) took a 4 round decision over the limited Donald Willis (1-4, 1).
