Qais Ashfaq, Tasha Jonas Get Wins on JDNXTGEN in Manchester

By Luke Madeira

Manchester - Qais Ashfaq began his professional career with a one sided points victory over the experienced Brett Fidoe

With Jamie Moore and Nigel Travis in his corner, Ashfaq dominated through out and took the fight 40-36 on the referees scorecard.

Natasha Jonas took one step closer to a maiden shot at the world title with a 60-54 over Karina Kopinska.

Jonas worked well to both body and head, and looked comfortable all the way to the final bell.

Hosea Burton had to go through some tough moments in his victory over Josip Perkovic, moving a step closer to a shot at regaining his British title.

A left hook from Burton shook Perkovic in the first round, the Croatian doing well to survive the round.

Perkovic grew into the fight in the second, drawing blood from the nose of Burton from straight shots with both hands.

Both men had sustained periods of success during the middle rounds, Burton’s jab giving him rest-bite from the relentless pressure Perkovic brought to the ring.

Hosea Burton edged the fight 78-75 on points in the end, but credit must go to both men for a hard fought contest.

Marcus Morrison showed devastating power in his second round destruction of Fernando Heredia as he continued his comeback from back to back loses in 2017.

Elsewhere on the undercard, Sam Hyde cruised to a 60-55 points victory over Toni Visic, returning to the ring for the first time since suffering a horrendous knee injury last time out.

Despite getting caught at times, Hyde looked comfortable from the first bell to the last.

Osman Aslam opened the show with a solid performance, outpointing Elvis Guillen 40-36 in a solid yet unremarkable performance.
