By Terence Dooley

Ashton-Under-Lyne's Jon Kays took some big name support into his Commonwealth super-featherweight title tilt against defending champion Liam Walsh at Wigan's Robin Park Centre on Saturday night. Billy Graham guided Ricky Hatton to the linear light-welterweight title; he is still a firm follower of the domestic scene.

'The Preacher' often contacts BoxingScene in the wake of a tough fight to express his excitement and praise the combatants. Indeed, the veteran coach has always had a soft spot for Kays; he had kept his fingers crossed throughout the contest and phoned through the next morning to say that the likeable boxer can come again.

I've known Jon since he was a kid. He's a really likeable lad. A fantastic amateur in his day. He fought his heart out last night. I'm really proud of him. Jon is a fantastic little boxer. He fought a really good fighter, Liam is going places, and took some murderous shots. Wow, Jon did so well to come back after the fourth round. He definitely has a future based on what I saw and so does Liam, purred Graham.
