August 8 2020

96-94 Harper, 96-95 Jonas, 95-95: Draw

Terri Harper retained her WBC and IBO Super-Featherweight World Titles with a thrilling split decision draw against Natasha Jonas in a historic main event at Matchroom Fight Camp.

It was the first time that two British women had competed against each other for a Word Title, and the all-action fight more than lived up to the occasion.

In a battle that showed women’s boxing at its finest, Liverpool’s Jonas suffered a nasty cut early on but quickly found her composure and began to trouble Harper.

‘Miss GB’ hurt 23-year-old Harper in the eighth round with a left-right combination and looked on the brink of winning a first World Title at the age of 36.

At the end of a thrilling back and forth contest, the judges scored it 96-94 for Harper, 96-95 for Jonas and 95-95.

Fowler wins by 7th round TKO

Anthony Fowler looked back to his destructive best as he dominated the tough and game Adam Harper, dropping him in round four before sealing the win with a stoppage in the seventh.

‘The Machine’ had too much fire power for Harper, and will now look towards an explosive Super-Welterweight showdown with Bermondsey’s Ted Cheeseman or a rematch with Preston’s Scott Fitzgerald.

Price wins on points 60-54

Leeds Featherweight prospect Hopey Price extended his unbeaten record to 3-0 (1 KO) with a composed points win over Sandhurst’s Jonny Phillips.

The 20-year-old, trained and managed by Dave Coldwell in Rotherham, neutralised the early aggression of Phillips to seal a comfortable 60-54 verdict.

CBS retains Commonwealth Crown

Chris Billam-Smith blasted out Cardiff’s Nathan Thorley in two rounds as he successfully defended his Commonwealth Cruiserweight Title for the first time in the opening bout of Fight Camp Week 2.

The 30-year-old utilised his superior size and power, backing up Thorley from the off and forcing ‘Thunder’ to take a knee with a big left hook at the end of round one.
Sensing an early finish, ‘The Gentleman’ resumed his ruthless assault in the second round and clubbing punches again floored Thorley, who briefly fired back defiantly, before a crunching counter punch prompted the referee to wave it off.

The impressive win potentially sets up a shot at the vacant European Title, previously held by Billam-Smith’s gym mate Lawrence Okolie, and Belfast’s Tommy McCarthy could be the man he faces for the belt later this year.
