Audley silences critics with 4th round KO of Adams

At a packed Brentwood Centre in Essex last night former Olympic gold medalist Audley Harrison took on current International Masters Heavyweight champion Ali Adams and in a fight billed as “Redmemption or Retirement” Audley was victorious.

The fight scheduled for 10 rounds started with Adams in control and Harrison hardly throwing a shot in the first 2 rounds, then in the 3rd Audley caught Adams with a big shot and rocked the Chelsea based Iraqi who took an 8 count, then in the 4th Audley came out firing and finished the job with the towel coming in from the Adams corner.

Good win for Audley and he’ll be looking to build on this now he’s back on winning form.

On the undercard journeyman Robin Deakin took on Lightweight Michael “Chunky” Devine over 4 rounds in front of a very hostile crowd who had been whipped up over the past few weeks on twitter with Deakin taunting Devine. But Devine who was in control throughout won the fight on points.

Also on the bill we saw Kris Agyei-Dua take on Jason Ball over 6 rounds at Middleweight with Ball having a lot of success throughout the bout with his right hand only to get dropped by Agyei-Dua in the 4th and 5th losing it 58-55 on points.

Eltham Middleweight KO artist Billy “The Kid” Cayzer 3-0 took on Raimonds Sniedze over 4 rounds but couldn’t stop this tall but slippery Latvian with the Sniedze getting through with shots but he just didn’t have the power to trouble Cayzer with the Londoner winning a close points decision 39-38.

Results in brief – Cruiserweight Leon Senior beat Paul Morris on points over 4 rounds 40-37, Light-Heavy Jack Morris beat Kirill Psonko with TKO win dropping the Lithuanian twice in the 4th in a rather one sided affair, Philip Bowes beat Mark McKray over 4 rounds in a light-Welter contest in his 3rd fight, Colin “Butch” Goldhawk stopped Florians Strupits to get a 2nd round TKO win in their Heavyweight bout, Local lad Ryan Taylor stopped Aleksejs Potjomkins in the 1st of their Light-Welter contest and Nathan Weise got a 2nd rounds stoppage victory over Jeff Thomas in their Light-Middle contest with Thomas getting saved by the bell at the end of the 1st.
