Kelly Morgan talks to Your Sport Swindon following her win against Melinda Lazar last night at Swindon’s Oasis Leisure Centre.

In what turned out to be a tough fight for Morgan, the Swindon middleweight was forced to go the distance against the gutsy Hungarian.

Morgan had her rival on the canvas in round three but Lazar was in no mood to quit although it was Morgan who eventually claimed a 58-56 points win.

Swindon boxer Ryan Martin comprehensively outboxed Exeter’s Faheem Khan en route to a 80-72 points victory as he claimed his first professional title, a Challenge belt.

Elsewhere on the bill, chief support Luke Watkins produced a similar performance to Martin as he comprehensively outpointed Hungary’s Tamas Bajzath.

A steady and slick boxing display from cruiserweight Watkins saw him earn an 80-72 points decision and a fifth career win.

Danny Bharj was another Swindon boxer on the night to produce a fine performance as he outpointed tricky lightweight rival Liam Richards 40-36 over four rounds.

Paddy Fitzpatrick’s Garvey Kelly delighted his fans with a shut out 40-35 win against Danny Donchev.

Having lost to Faheem Khan on his last outing in Swindon, Kelly banished that memory with a professional display in which Donchev had a point deducted for use of the head in round three.

 

Super middleweight Young however had a disappointing night as his Challenge title contest against Keiron Gray was judged a draw.

The former Penhill amateur star struggled to outbox his opponent which saw both boxers fight at close range for the majority of the fight.

Young’s cause wasn’t helped by a point deduction as the judges scored the fight a draw.

Malmesbury’s Joe Hughes had a frustrating night after his contest against Tomas Bartunek ended after just one round after his opponent suffered a nasty cut.

And finally, Joe Beeden made a winning return to the Swindon as the super featherweight beat Qasim Hussain 40-36.
