Echo Arena, Liverpool - Irishman Stephen Ormond (16-1, 7 KOs) spoiled this night of boxing for Frank Warren and roaring Liverpudlian crowd by upsetting pre-fight favorite Derry Matthews (34-9-2, 19 KOs), who failed in a futile attempt to acquire Ormond's WBO European lightweight title. Ormond won a convincing decision with almost identical scores: 98-93 (twice) and 98-92. BoxingScene is an agreement with the latter score.

Highly regarded British super flyweight prospect Paul Butler (14-0, 7 KOs) continued his transition onto the world scene with a solid victory over Mexican Ruben Montoya (12-2-1, 8 KOs) to add a vacant WBA I/C 115lb title to his already owned WBO I/C super flyweight belt with a dominant unanimous decision. Final scores were: 120-108, 120-109 and 118-110 - for the WBO #6, WBC #10 and IBF #12 super flyweight. BoxingScene had it closer: 117-111 - also for Butler.

Liverpool's Joe Selkirk (12-0, 6 KOs) captured his first career belt with the thrid-round stoppage of late sub Zoltan Sera of Hungary (Boxrec listed his record 12-0, 8KOs, coming in, while BoxNation displayed 12-1 record for the Hungarian). Selkirk, 28, 2007 ABA welterweight titleholder, is now the WBO Eruopean light middleweight champion.

Merseyside's Liam Smith, one of four fighting Smith brothers (which also include Callum, Paul and Stephen Smith), successfully retained his BBBofC light middleweight title with a spectacular stoppage of veteran domestic contender Mark Thompson (25-4, 15 KOs) in four rounds. Smith is now 16-0-1, with 6 KOs.

Kill or be killed. It doesn't matter, on which edge Enzo Maccarinelli finishes his fights - he will produce fireworks (in one way or another) in both cases. He proved it once again in his hard-fought seventh-round stoppage of veteran domestic contender Courtney Fry (18-4, 6 KOs), a fight, which saw both combatants having their chances with only Fry going down. Maccarinelli is now 38-6, 30 KOs, competing lighter, in the light heavyweight division.

Butler is shaping up very nicely; could be the best 'wee man' to have come through from the UK for a long, long time. Nice to see a good Brit in the sub-bantamweight weight classes.

Butler was impressive again..looking forward to seeing how the lad does when he steps up in level. Certainly one to keep an eye on. A shame for Derry. He has still got wins in him but certain kind of fighters will trouble him. Ormond was one of those fighters..great workrate. Selkirk looked...

Its high time Paul Butler & Khalid Yafai were matched for Butler's British/Commonwealth titles!
