Ted Cheeseman Breaks Down, Decisions Carson Jones

By Miguel Assuncao

O2 Arena, London - London’s Ted Cheeseman (12-0-0, 8KOs) steps up in class and beats the experienced Carson Jones (40-12-3, 30KOs) on points over 10 bruising rounds.

The Bermondsey fighter won 99-91, 99-91, 100-90 on what seemed to be slightly generous scorecards to pick up the WBA International Super Welterweight title.
Cheeseman, 22, landed the cleaner work throughout but had to withstand several onslaughts from the wily American.

The home fighter suffered a bloodied nose in the second and was staggered by a wide right hook from Jones in the fourth.

That kicked Cheeseman into gear as he fought fire with fire at close quarters and landed several clean shots on the iron chinned visitor.

Jones, 31, is no stranger to fighting in the UK, having twice fought Kell Brook and taken Ben Hall’s unbeaten record in late 2016.

However, Cheeseman wasn't to suffer the same fate as he got back to his boxing in the middle rounds, again landing some big straight shots in the sixth and seventh.
Coming off a loss against Antonio Margarito, Jones seemed to be aware he needed to leave everything in the ring.

Despite having a point deducted by referee Howard Foster, Jones continued to come forward looking for a big shot but Cheeseman's footwork was able to nullify the threat.

The final two rounds saw Cheeseman again reassert him dominance in what will undoubtedly prove to be a great learning fight for the Englishman.

Also on the card, Light heavyweight Joshua Buatsi (3-0-0, 2KOs) extends his unbeaten record in the paid ranks with a second round technical knockout of Jordan Joseph (7-1-1, 2KOs).

London-based Buatsi landed a sharp four punch combination before unloading another barrage of unanswered shots that forced the referee to step in 2.43 into the second.

Joseph, 22, from Hemel Hempstead, has challenged for the Southern Area title, but found the going much tougher against an Olympic medallist. 

Buatsi’s amateur pedigree shone through as he skipped in and out of range and landed a left hook late in the first that had Joseph in trouble, only for the bell to ring.

The inevitable finish came in the following round much to the delight of the sizeable home town support, including manager Anthony Joshua at ringside.

Nice W for Cheeseman. Carson a lil more worn down then he used to be, but still a nice guy to have on your resume for a up & coming prospect.
