She pointed to her hand and said four wins get you a title shot in her divisions – her first two fingers represented her back-to-back wins, and the middle finger was reserved for Correia. Another quick punch as he swiftly closes the distance. “I was there with him in hospice, and he’s here in this chain with me tonight”. “And that was like that until I remember standing up and the fight was over”. That’s how I fight since I started in this sport.
Also on the main card, Las Vegan Khalil Rountree knocked out light heavyweight Paul Craig in the closing seconds of the first round for his second straight win. I am the best striker in this division. “They’ve been brilliant. They’ve been there every step of the way, and I can’t thank them enough for that”.
Stevie Ray, fighting out his contract in Glasgow, is another unanimous pick for our staff, despite being paired off against risky lightweight Paul Felder.
The remaining two bouts saw just two writers picking heavyweight James Mulheron in his bout against Justin Willis, despite Willis’ relative inexperience at just 4-1 as a pro, plus the fact that Mulheron is fighting on home turf.
Legendary Irish flyweight Neil Seery put on a vintage display in his retirement bout against Alexandre Pantoja. My coaches always believed in me and they made me believe in myself. I’ll fight better than ever. I’m glad it’s ended now, though. “I’ll live to fight another day, just not inside the octagon”. As the Irishman looked to take the fight to the ground after being on the end of a kicking clinic from his opponent, Bofando countered with a trip and Ward crashed head first into the canvas, which knocked him out.
Danny Henry earned a unanimous-decision victory over lightweight Daniel Teymur and Brett Johns won all three rounds in a decision victory over Albert Morales.
