Last night The Coronet in London’s Elephant & Castle hosted the last Hellraiser Promotions bill of 2012 and as always there was a good turn out and some real support for the guys on the bill.

Headlining was Southampton lightweight Matty Tew facing Ruben Movsesyan from Georgia for the vacant International Masters title and although the Georgian looked the smaller of the 2 men he put on a good performance and it was a close fight with Tew getting caught at regular intervals. The fight went the 10 round distance and the ref saw it 97-95 in favour of Tew.

Quickest fight of the night was at light-middle and saw Finchley based Pole Marcin Marczak demolish Chestunt based Scouser Scott Woods in just 65 seconds with Woods down in the opening seconds and the Marczak all over him and Woods taking plenty ref Bob Williams called a halt to the action. Marczak looked very sharp and definitely one to watch.

Local hero Johnny Garton [light-middle] took on Jay Morris from the Isle of Wight over 6 rounds with Morris cutting Garton over the right eye in the first round it looked like troubled times ahead for the PEXICAN but he weathered the storm and took control of the later rounds to win the bout on points 59-55.

Another of Mickey Helliet’s prospects Brighton light-middle Lightning Lloyd Ellett won every round of his 6 rounder with Brimingham’s Dee Mitchell, Ellett who had a load of support in The Coronet took the bout 60-54.

Results in brief – Making his pro debut at The Coronet was Bright middleweight James Child taking on Arnold Lydekaitis with Child taking it 40-37 over 4 rounds, Welling super-feather Jack Dishart beat Pavels Senkovs over 4 rounds in his second pro outing 39-37, Islington welter Charlie Rice beat a game Bheki Moyo over 4 rounds 40-36 with Rice doing the better work throughout despite get hit with plenty of low blows, Carshalton welter Lee Owen beat tough Tooting based journeyman Danny Donchev over 4 rounds 40-36 Owen won convincingly despite fancy an awkward opponent and Morden lightweight Craig Whyatt beat Ibrar Riyaz 39-37 over 4 rounds which was a good test for Whyatt against a tough opponent who never comes to lay down.

DAILY SPORT says – All in all an entertaining nights action at South London’s home of boxing.
