Photos: Scott Fitzgerald Rallies Late To Decision Ted Cheeseman

Newcastle Arena, Newcastle - In a battle for the British super welterweight title, Scott Fitzgerald (14-0, 9 KOs) won what was a questionable twelve round unanimous decision over Ted Cheeseman (16-2-1, 9 KOs). The scores were 116-113, 116-113 and 115-113. (photos by Mark Robinson)

Their mutual promoter, Eddie Hearn, felt Cheeseman had outboxed Fitzgerald for at least eight to nine rounds.

Fitzgerald was coming off his March cracker split decision victory over Anthony Fowler.

Cheeseman was coming in from what was a lackluster 2019, with a decision loss to Sergio Garcia in February and then a twelve round split draw with Kieron Conway in June - although most felt Cheeseman had clearly won that fight.

Without doubt Cheeseman deserves an immediate rematch, the fight was just too close to call. As for Fowler, maybe a fight with James Metcalf could work well with both winner's getting it on!

Comment by W1LL on 10-20-2019

Ted Cheeseman fought the best he has in a long time, but fatigue got him in the later rounds. I had him 4-2 up after 6, but the fight got a lot closer through 6, 7 and 8 before Scott…
