Unbeaten lightweight Mark Chamberlain recorded the best win of his career to date as he dominated Jeff Ofori who was pulled out by his corner at the end of the fifth round on the Avanesyan-Metz bill at Wembley Arena.

Chamberlain is tall and can look a bit stiff. But is accurate with his shots and has a good workrate and could develop into a good fighter as he progresses. 

The problem early on for Ofori, who looked unlucky to drop a narrow decision to Archie Sharp in 2020, was that he wasn’t busy enough. So, in a messy opening it was Chamberlain’s straighter shots and aggression that held sway. 

In the fifth round Chamberlain really started to put his shots together, landing his long lefts repeatedly, which Ofori seemed unable to avoid. The more his confidence grew, the more he put behind his punches and Ofori looked a beaten man heading back to his corner and he was retied on his stool at the end of the round. The referee was Lee Every. 

Masood Abdulah looks a featherweight who can go places as he moved to 4-0 with a final-round stoppage over Sandeep Singh Bhatti, from India, in a six-rounder. 

Abdulah, from Islington, put his punches well throughout against an opponent who took his licks and earned every penny of his purse. 

Bhatti spent most of the fight hiding behind a high guard, but when he threw, he meant it. At first his punches were wild, but when he found his range in the second round, he caught Abdulah with some corkers. 

None of that seemed to upset Abdullah’s rhythm, though, as he set a fierce pace and kept it up, switching his attack to head and body throughout.  

By the fourth, things were starting to catch up with Bhatti as his face marked up and he began to look unsteady on his feet. Abdulah began loading up on his shots in the fifth, although he received several warnings for use of the shoulder. 

There was no let up from Abdulah, who string his punches together in the sixth to force Lyson to step in at 1:20. Bhatti complained, but he had taken a lot of punishment. 

Henry Turner stretched his unbeaten record to seven fights at he stopped Croatia’s Ivan Niegac in three one-sided rounds. 

Turner started as if intent on securing his first stoppage, landing powerfully to the body with the right hook and winging in hard lefts from his southpaw stance. 

Midway through the third round, a big left straight down the pipe caused Niegac to take a knee. Turner went for the stoppage and, while the finish was not that conclusive, the Croatian was not throwing back when referee Lee Every stepped in at 2:18 of the third round. 

Another unbeaten super-lightweight, Sonny Liston Ali, made it three wins in a row, knocking down Lee Glover twice on the way to a six-round points win. 

It did not take long for Ali to make an impact, as a glancing right put Glover over. Ali threw another big right as Glover was on one knee, but was quite fortunate that he missed. 

Ali is tall for a super-lightweight and uses his reach well. He also has quick hands, as he showed at the end of the third when he made Glover hand on after landing a sharp left hook after drawing Glover forward. 

The last three rounds saw a bit much holding, though, before Ali got through again midway through the sixth, landing a big right that saw Glover eventually sink to the floor after trying to grab on. Ali went for the stoppage but ran out of time. 

Referee Mark Lyson scored it 60-52. 

East-ender Khalid Ali earned his second straight win as a professional with a four-round points win over Spain-based Nicaraguan Josue Bendana at welterweight. 

Ali went fast from the start, landing some hard shots in the first two rounds, but Bendana stuck with it as he became accustomed to the power, before losing a 40-36 decision on referee Lee Every’s card.
