Matchroom Delivers Epic Night of Boxing!

Andy Shore of Fight Fans Worldwide breaks down a fantastic night of boxing at the O2 in London

By Andy Shore   - @intuboxing

Where do you start with last night's card?! Eddie Hearn has once again delivered boxing entertainment of the highest order! I'll try to stick to the highlights:

Dillian Whyte vs Joseph Parker

First off, both guys deserve huge credit for taking this fight. On paper, it was a 50:50 fight between two guys at the top of the pile of non-title holders, both knowing the winner would arguably have the best CV of any heavyweight not named Anthony Joshua.

There was just cause to be confident that this fight would deliver as Parker had to engage after his performance again AJ. The first half of the fight was tough to call; Whyte was gifted an early knockdown when Parker was dropped from a clash of heads, followed by a shoulder/elbow to the face.

Personally, I had Whyte narrowly ahead at the halfway stage, but from there, Whyte took an unassailable lead going into the last couple of rounds. He out-worked Parker, landing a variety of shots - including some brutal body work - and bullying the New Zealander. He then dropped Parker with a peach of a left hook.

But, with Parker looking tired and seemingly out ideas, if you thought he was done, you had to think again! He bounced back from the heavy knockdown, showing big heart to stay in the fight, albeit conceding rounds.

As if we hadn't been treated enough in this action fight, the twelfth contained huge drama, with Whyte tired and trying to see the fight out, Parker dropped him with a crunching blow. Thankfully for Whyte, time was almost up and he clung on to take a deserved unanimous points victory.

Final credit goes to Ian John-Lewis, who let the guys scrap it out; there were some roughhouse tactics from Whyte, but it was a great battle between two warriors! 

Dereck Chisora vs Carlos Takam

Preceding the main event (above) was the mouthwatering match-up between two seemingly evenly matched heavyweights. Most had Takam the favourite, with Del Boy's best days behind him. What they delivered was an epic slugfest that could have taken place in a phone box for much of the fight. Before the fight ended in the eighth round, these two guys put on a fight of the year contender, as they traded up close for almost every minute of the first seven rounds.

Going into the eighth, I had Takam ahead with a nice lead, as he had the better of most of the exchanges and seemed to have the stronger engine. Going into the eighth it was no surprise that both guys looked tired, but then, almost out of nowhere, Chisora landed a huge right that dropped Takam hard! He got back to his feet just long enough to eat another heavy shot, this time to the chin, and that was good night!

This was a massive win for Chisora, which puts him right in the mix for another big fight. Just when you start to write the guy off, having now lost eight times, he's contributed to another hugely entertaining fight. 

The best of the rest:

Katie Taylor put on another punch-perfect performance. She's such a classy operator and she stopped her latest victim in just the 3rd round to move to 10-0.

Conor Benn struggled to his second victory over Cedric Peynaud, albeit more convincingly than in their first fight. He put the Frenchman down three times en route to another points victory; but, in truth, it was another performance that raised more questions than it answered. Defensively, Benn still looks like a novice and he's far from ready for a step up in class. 

What a night of boxing! Well worth the PPV fee; better still if you enjoyed the fights in the casino, as we did - we had a good turnout with a number of the guys from the 2018 Boxing Prediction League, which created a great atmosphere to savour such a boxing treat.
