Mathews Drills Woodhouse, Liam Smith Makes History

Olympia, Liverpool, Merseyside - For the Commonwealth lightweight title, a very action-packed fight saw Derry Mathews (34-8-2, 19KOs) drill Curtis Woodhouse (19-6, 13KOs) in the fourth round with a massive shot. The two fighters went to war in every round, trading punches and looking to land something big. During the fourth, as they were trading, Mathews landing a shot that dropped Woodhouse on his back. Woodhouse made it to his feet but he was wobbling all over the place and the referee waved things off.

For the vacant British junior middleweight title, Liam Smith (15-0-1, 5KOs) won a twelve round unanimous decision over Erick Ochieng (14-2, 4KOs). In the early rounds, Ochieng did very well with his slick boxing. As the rounds continued, Smith began to wear him down and started taking over the entire fight. The scores were 117-112, 117-112, 116-113.

Smith makes British boxing history. He joins elder brothers Paul and Stephen as British champions. It is the first time in British boxing where three brothers have held the Lonsdale belt simultaneously.

Super middleweight contender Rocky Fielding (16-0, 9KOs) demolished Mohammed Akrong (19-6, 15KOs) in less than two minutes of the first round to capture the vacant Commonwealth championship. A big left hook by Fielding had Akrong in all sorts of trouble and he never recovered.

Super middleweight Callum Smith (8-0, 6KOs) stopped Patrick Mendy (14-7-1, 1KO) to pikc up the vacant English title.

Callum Smith is looking like a great prospect

Anyone see the Smith fight? Mendy is as tough as old boots. Didn't see this coming. Maybe a late rounds stoppage but not 1st round.
