Robbie Davies Wins Gold With Tough Win Over Glenn Foot

By Luke Madeira

Robbie Davies Jnr becomes British and Commonwealth champion after battling to a hard fought points victory over Glenn Foot.

Fighting live on Sky Sports at the Metro Arena in Liverpool, the pair of super lightweights battled it out in a bloody 12 round contest.

Robbie Davies began the bout the brighter of the two, producing the cleaner work in a close round.


First blood was drawn from Davies, who began bleeding from the nose in the second round before a head clash with a few seconds remaining opening up a cut over his left eye.

The cut worsened in the third as Foot continued to get away with using his head whilst both fighters were in close.

Foot however began bleeding under the left eye himself, again caused when the fight was being fought inside.

The Sunderland man was allowed to use rough tactics by the referee, repeatedly punching his opponent on the back of the head through out the bout whilst getting away with it.

Davies Jnr seemed to be doing just enough to win the rounds, although you could see the frustration etched across his face in periods of the contest.

Each round followed a similar pattern, with Davies doing just enough to win each scrappy round.

The scorecards reflected the contest, Robbie Davies winning the majority of the close rounds to become the new British and Commonwealth champion and moving to 17-1 in the process.

The three judges scored the contest 119-109, 118-110 and 117-112 all in favour of the Liverpudlian.

Elsewhere, Joe Laws got the ovation of the night in just his third fight.

The Newcastle man, 24, sold 980 tickets for his clash against Chris Truman and he appeared to have inflicted a broken jaw on the visitor in the final round as a half was called at two minutes and 22 seconds following two knockdowns.

Laws is now 3-0 with all three early.
