The Coronet Hellraiser


Last night saw Mickey Helliet’s Hellraiser Promotions stage an action pack show to a full house at London’s Coronet Theatre televised live on Eurosport, top of the bill was Southern Area Lightweight champ Ben Murphy defending his title against Carlshalton’s Tony Owen this was an all out battle with Owen getting stopped in the 4th when the ref called a halt to the action. Murphy an all out slugger bullied Owen from the off and Owen who can box well didn’t get a chance to get into his stride of standing off and jabbing the smaller man.

One to watch in Mickey’s stable is Kent Cruiserweight Dan Woodgate who had a great 1st round KO victory over Paul Davis from Norwich. Woodgate with his first professional KO is now 5-1.

The Coronet also saw 2 prospects make there debut Morden Light-Welterweight Craig Whyatt took on Crawley’s Robin Deakin over 4 rounds winning on points 40-36 in a messy fight with lots of wrestling and Whyatt getting cut over his left eye in the second. Brighton Welter Lloyd Ellett beat London based South African Bheki Moyo over 4 rounds 40-36 he rocked Moyo in the 3rd with a big right hand. So 2 prospects both now 1-0 in the pro’s.

Fareham’s Floyd Moore stopped Barking’s Marc Callaghan in 2 with Callaghan’s corner throwing the towel in, much to the delioght of the Moore fans.

Marcin Marczak the Finchley base Pole dropped Tootings Danny Donchev twice throughout a good fight to claim a TKO victory in the 4th despite a cut to his left eye sustained in the 3rd.

Peckham Welter Johnny Garton made it 2-0 beating Jason Nesbit on points 40-36 and Euston Lightweight Ben Day beat Kris Laight on points over 4 rounds 40-36 after been cut in the 1st over the right eye and Ryan Barrett beat Dan Stewart over 8 rounds 77-75 (I made it a draw).

The last fight of the night was Welter Ricky “Pretty” Boylan 2-0 against Bulgarian Radoslav Mitev 1-3 which nearly ended in an upset with Boylan getting dropped and taking an 8 count in the 1st and getting dropped again in the 4th but the ref didn’t count it and Boylan got on top and dropped Mitev with a crushing body shot and with Mitev clearly in a lot of pain the ref stopped the fight at 1.37 of the 4th so a good TKO stoppage for Boylan after putting it all on the line.

Daily Sport says – All in all a great show from Mickey Helliet in a packed out venue with superb support for practically every fighter on the bill.
