Fowler Makes Pro Debut/Theophane Out Injured

For the first time on a Left Jab show promoter Miranda Carter will showcase a boxer under her own management.

Welterweight Luke Fowler is only 18 years old and keen to impress.

The show is a co-promotion with Bruce Baker, who brings a number of the boxers that he manages to the bill including Francis Maina, trained by James Cook MBE, in his boxing debut. Two other Cook-trained boxers are on the bill - Diego Burton and Dalton Miller.

Regrettably Ashley Theophane will be in the audience rather than the ring. He has had to withdraw from his fight due to injury. As a long-time friend of Left Jab, Ashley Carter that he will put in an appearance on a future bill.

Tickets available online at £35, £45, £65. Doors open 2pm, boxing starts 3pm

 
'The Force' Is Focused
Despite a few weeks of chopping and changing, Coventry’s James “The Force” Flinn has remained focused on adding another title to his mantelpiece.

The unbeaten puncher, 29, now takes on Atherton’s William Warburton for the vacant British Master welterweight crown in Bedworth this Saturday after both Sean McKervey and Keith Sheen were forced to withdraw.

Flinn admits he doesn’t know much about his new foe but isn’t letting that take him off his game plan and is keen to regain the belt he previously won by beating Ben Lawler earlier this year before moving on to other championships.

“I haven’t seen much of him except his pro debut on Youtube, but that’s not bothering me,” Flynn, 9 – 0– 1 (2 KOs). “I’ve seen his record and from what I can gather he’s one of them guys that tries, a guy who works hard and keeps coming.

“I hope this being for a title gives him some incentive because I don’t want him going into his shell after a few rounds. I’d rather him come and try and have a fight rather that try and survive. The last thing you need in a title fight is someone backing off.”

It may be foolish to look beyond this weekend’s action but Flinn is like every other ambitious boxer and hopes to build his way towards gaining opportunities for domestic boxing’s crème de la crème championships.

“I’m looking at the English, Commonwealth and British titles, whether they come up or not is a different matter,” he said.
“The English title has been mentioned a few times but it’s getting them to defend it. Adnan Amar has that title for ages and he’s only defended it a few times so I don’t understand how he’s still got it.

“He’s basically holding up the other lads that could be fighting for it. If you’ve got a title then why should you be allowed to keep hold of it if you’re not defending it?

“When I get this fight out of the way and I’ve beaten McKervey for the area title, I’ll have no trouble fighting Amar and I’m sure a lot of the other lads are thinking the same thing.”

He added: “Whatever titles come a long at either welter or light-welter I’m ready.”Despite a few weeks of chopping and changing, Coventry’s James “The Force” Flinn has remained focused on adding another title to his mantelpiece.

Matthews Is Crowned Master Champ In Liverpool

 

Liverpool’s Derry Mathews won the vacant British Masters lightweight title and kept alive his hopes of a European lightweight title tilt by stopping fellow Scouser Stephen Jennings in six rounds at a raucous Greenbank Leisure Centre in Liverpool on Saturday night (July 30).

Mathews, now 29 – 5 (15 KOs), was due to challenge continental ruler Gavin Rees this month until the Welshman sustained a hand injury in training.

Rather than be down about it, 27-year-old Mathews elected to honour a pre-made agreement to face Jennings and pitched a domineering performance.

Jennings, 5 – 1 – 1 (2 KOs), pressed with all his might but could never get a foothold in the fight was sent crashing to the ring apron in the fifth round after Mathews had detonated a hard combination against the ropes.

Bravely, he got back to his feet and made it to the end of the session. In the sixth, though, it all ended. Mathews rocked his head back with a crisp uppercut before a series of hefty blows forced the intervention of referee Steve Gray. The time was 2.50.

Other results:
light welterweight - Joe Tonks W PTS 6 Robin Deakin
welterweight - Terry Needham L TKO 2 Dale Hutchinson
super bantamweight – Kevin Satchell W PTS 4 Delroy Spencer
middleweight - Adnan Amar W PTS 4 Matt Seawright
featherweight - James Dickens W PTS 4 Chuck Jones

Owen Claims First Title

 

Brighton 11 June: Carshalton’s unbeaten Tony Owen won his first title as a pro by seeing off Jason Nesbitt in an International Masters lightweight title tilt at the Hilton Metropole Hotel in Brighton.


The 24-year-old southpaw, a bricklayer by day, dominated every session on way to earning a 100 –91 verdict from scoring referee Jeff Hinds.

Owen, who is trained by former three-time world champion Duke McKenzie, was moved swiftly in and out of range of his opponent and got fast combinations to the head and body.

Veteran Nesbitt, from Birmingham, had a good session in the sixth when he got off several weighty hooks of his own but Owen merely shrugged off the assault and went back to his neat boxing.

Owen’s manager, David Cowland, believes his charge is one of the best prospects around and can go on to garner many more titles down the line.

He said: "I do think he is on his way. We are really pleased with his attitude. He's taken the vest off now and is looking like a pro. He's punching short and taking his time."

This pro-am show also saw the final amateur appearance of Chris Eubank Jnr. The son of the flamboyant former WBO super-middleweight king stopped Nathan Decastro in the second round and has now signed pro forms with Matchroom Sports.
