Ricky Burns Decisions Moses; Appleby and Johnson Win

Braehead Arena, Glasgow, Scotland -  WBO lightweight interim-champion Ricky Burns (34-2, 9KOs) won a twelve round unanimous decision over Paulus Moses (28-2, 19KOs). Moses was too inactive and Burns' defense was too good. The scores were 119-110, 120-110 and 117-111.  Burns was very defensive, moved very well and blocked the majority of Moses' telegraphed punches. The challenger never threw more than one or two punches at a time, which made things very easy for Burns.

Cruiserweight prospect Callum Johnson (4-0, 2KOs) destroyed Tommy Tolan (4-10, 3KOs) in the first round. Johnson went right at him with hard shots to the head and body. Tolan was taking hard shots and went down. Tolan's corner threw in the towel at 1:30, as Tolan appeared to be very hurt.

Paul Appleby (18-3, 11KOs) won a close ten round unanimous decision over previously undefeated Stephen Ormond (11-1, 5KOs) to win the vacant BBBofC Celtic super featherweight title. The scores were 96-94, 96-94, 96-95. Appleby started strong, but Ormond started turning the fight round and began working his way back and the two fighters fought tooth and nail until the final bell. Appleby suffered a cut around his right eye and looked to be fading a little in the last two rounds, but he hung on and fought back. Ormond lost a point in the seventh for coming in with his head. 

Cruiserweight Stephen Simmons (4-0, 2KOs) stopped Hastings Rasani (23-66-5, 16KOs) in the sixth and final round. Rasani took a beating in the fight and the referee had seen enough after stopped the punishment at 2:29 of the sixth.
