Junior Witter Beats Lynes: Galahad and Eubank Win

By Alexey Sukachev

Hillsborough Leisure Centre, Sheffield - In a battle for the British welterweight crown, former WBC junior welterweight champion Junior Witter (41-5-2, 22KOs) won a twelve round unanimous decision over Colin Lynes (36-10, 12KOs). The scores were 117-112, 116-114 and 115-114. Witter had previously decisioned Lynes in 2005.

Chris Eubank Jr. (4-0, 2 KOs), the son of a legend, improved his record with a solid win over tough competitor Harry Matthews (12-6-1, 2 KOs) unanimous over six. Eubank experienced some problems in fighting his opponent and also ate too many clean shots but otherwise was rather solid.

Kid Galahad (12-0, 5 KOs), another fighter in a recent breed of highly talented British super bantamweights, displayed both his defensive genuis and his skills against brave but overmatched challenger Josh Wale (14-4-1, 7 KOs) to retain his WBC International title aftera ninth-round TKO.

The fight was all Galahad. The Kid danced around slower Wale, peppered him with the jabs and had full control of the fight with a visible ease. Punishment was started to pile up for Wale from round one. He wasn't as gifted and as skilled as his elusive and quick opponent. Moreover, Galahad soon turned Wale's face into a bloody mess. Josh had nicks under both eyes and during the fight he suffered a bad cut over his right eye. After a brutal ninth, when Kid punished his foe at will, and based on the advice of the ringside physician, referee Victor Loughlin put a halt to the encounter during the break between the ninth and the tenth stanzas.
