SEAN McGOLDRICK v  THOMAS ESSOMBA WUD (96-94, 97-93, 98-93)

Thomas Essomba ended Sean McGoldrick's unbeaten record with an upset points win to claim the vacant WBA Continental Bantamweight crown. The Cameroon-born man, who is a former English Bantamweight Champion, 
was aggressive from the start and proved to be too good for McGoldrick on the night.

10 x 3 mins English Middleweight Championship
JACK CULLEN WTKO8 (2:07) v JOHN HARDING Jr 

Jack Cullen defended his English Middleweight title with a commanding eighth-round stoppage win over the brave John Harding Jr. Cullen, now 17-1 (8 KOs), utilised his superior reach from the opening bell, gradually wearing down Harding Jr, who was dropped in the fifth round before the referee waved it off in the eighth as the south Londoner sagged on the ropes.
 
10 x 3 mins WBA Continental Super-Lightweight Championship
LEWIS RITSON WTKO3 (2:50) v MAREK JEDRZEJEWSKI 

Newcastle's Lewis Ritson stopped Marek Jedrzejewski in three rounds to retain his WBA Continental Super-Lightweight crown, then vented his anger towards Robbie Davies Jr after they traded words on social media. 

Ritson produced a more controlled performance against Jedrzejewski, flooring the replacement opponent with a brutal body shot, and then forced the referee's intervention with further spiteful punches to the ribs.

'Sandman' called for a domestic clash against Davies Jr afterwards, and the duo later became embroiled in an angry exchange backstage.

"Robbie Davies is full of rubbish," Ritson told Sky Sports. "It's a 50-50 fight, me and Robbie, I'm in Liverpool. I'll call him out if I want on camera, I don't care.

"He's been running his mouth on social media. I'm not about that. If he wants it next, he can get it. It's a 50-50 fight, but I'll smash him."

4 x 3 mins Super-Middleweight contest
JOHN DOCHERTY WPTS4 (40-36) v DARRYL SHARP 
  
Hard-hitting Montrose Super-Middleweight prospect John Docherty was taken the distance for the first time in his professional career by the tough Middleton man Darryl Sharp. 'The Doc' banked some valuable and well-needed rounds as he outpointed Sharp over four rounds. 
 
8 x 3 mins Welterweight contest
ROBBIE DAVIES Jr WTKO3 (2:45) v MICHAL DUFEK

Liverpool's Robbie Davies Jr pounded Michal Dufek to a halt in the third round of their Welterweight clash. The former European Super-Lightweight Champion was a class above his brave Czech opponent, with the referee stepping in following a sustained barrage of hurtful punches.

Davies Jr confirmed the altercation with Ritson in his post-fight interview and also vowed to settle their feud by knockout.

"He walked past us and obviously I'd just been listening in the back, what he'd said," Davies Jr told Sky Sports after his win. "I obviously had my own fight to think of, so I just stared at him. He was mumbling something.

"But we've been staying in the same hotel, and the god's honest truth, my hand on my heart, every time I've looked at him, he's looked away.

"He will build the hype for the TV, but when it was just me and him, it was me who had front and not him.

"If the offer is good enough and it makes sense to me and my team, I'll stop him."

 10 x 3 mins vacant WBO Inter-Continental Middleweight Championship
ANTHONY FOWLER WUD (98-92, 98-92, 97-93) v BRIAN ROSE 
(Liverpool)                                                                (Blackpool)
 
Anthony Fowler returned with a wide points win over Brian Rose and then called for a rematch with Scott Fitzgerald.

The Liverpudlian's unbeaten record was ended by a split decision loss to Fitzgerald in March, but he produced a more controlled performance to defeat the experienced Rose with scores of 98-92, 98-92 and 97-93 at the top of the JD NXTGEN bill in his home city. 

Speaking afterwards, Fowler told Sky Sports that he wants Fitzgerald to come through an expected British title clash with Ted Cheeseman to set up a second fight.

"Hopefully Scott beats Cheeseman, because I believe Scott is a better fighter and then it would be a dream come true to box Scott at the end of the year. I don't care where it is."
