Groves vs. Eubank - LIVE Results From Manchester

By Elliot Foster

In a tough battle for the British featherweight title, Ryan Walsh (27-3-1) and Isaac Lowe (14-0-3) fought to a twelve round split draw. The scores were 115-113 for Lowe, 116-114 for Waslsh and 115-115 for the draw.

In a battle for the British middleweight title, a give and take fight saw Tommy Langford (20-1, 6 KOs) retain the title with a twelve round unanimous decision over a very game Jack Arnfield (25-3, 6 KOs)

The scores were 116-113, 116-113 and 117-113 for Langford.

Welterweight contender Luther Clay (7-1, 3 KOs) won a six round decision over Danny Craven (3-2). The referee handed in the sole score of 58-57.

Gabriella Mezei (9-11-3) spoiled the pro debut of Belinda Skinner (0-1) with a four round decision, and a sole score from the referee of 39-38.

Sebastian Eubank got his professional career off to a solid start with a points win.

The 26-year-old formed part of the undercard to his brother Chris’ World Boxing Super Series semi-final super-middleweight showdown against George Groves.

Groves puts his WBA Super world title on the line at Manchester Arena, exclusively live on ITV Box Office, against the man who holds the lightly-regarded IBO crown.

Eubank went the distance against Kamil Kulczyk of Poland and knocked him down in the penultimate round before earning a 40-35 points win.

Meanwhile, Mikael Lawal was too strong for Adam Williams and secured an early one-sided win over Adam Williams to move to 6-0.

The Team Sauerland-promoted cruiserweight will be hoping to be back out again sooner rather than later.

After a disappointing week, there was some good news for Simon Vallily. He was meant to fight Arfan Iqbal in a challenge for the English cruiserweight title, but Iqbal withdrew on Friday of fight week citing an injured ankle.

That left Vallily in against Blaise Mendouo over four rounds and the late stand-in foe was dispatched of after two minutes and 34 seconds of the final round.

And Belinda Skinner, who represented Hastings West Hill Boxing Club for several years during her amateur career, kicked off the card with a defeat in her professional debut.

Skinner won the National ABA championship class C 54kg female title in 2013 –– less than a year after taking up the sport –– but was on the wrong end of a 39-38 verdict against Hungary’s Gabriella Mezei from referee Mark Lyson.

[QUOTE=CLUBBER!;18494246]Eubanks is a bloody mess right now[/QUOTE] And that happened to be a cut from a head clash not a punch. But man this fight is fricken awesome, enjoying every bit of it.
