Tyson Fury, Frampton Doubleheader - LIVE Results From Belfast

By Elliot Foster

Sam Maxwell continued his rise in the paid ranks under his new coach.

The Commonwealth Games bronze medallist scored a retirement win over Chris Truman in Belfast.

Maxwell, who recently began training with Danny Vaughan up in Glasgow, controlled proceedings at Windsor Park, as part of the supporting cast to Carl Frampton’s WBO interim featherweight title defence against undefeated Australian Luke Jackson, Paddy Barnes’ WBC world flyweight title challenge against Nicaragua’s Cristofer Rosales and Tyson Fury’s second comeback fight against Francesco Pianeta, before getting an early finish after the Birmingham man’s corner pulled him out at the end of the third round with a shoulder problem.

And now the 29-year-old wants to move up in levels and is hoping he can add to his ledger at least once more before the end of the year.

“It was great to get a fight on such a big bill,” Maxwell told Boxing Scene. “There may only have been a few hundred people in there at the time that I was fighting, but it was great to experience it and tick it off the list.

“My management team want to get me out again in November and I’ve had a good year up to now, so I’m looking forward to what else is in store.

“My next fight will be my 10th fight and then I’ll start looking at titles after fighting over eight rounds next.”


Meanwhile, Steven Donnelly made a good start to his professional career.

The 29-year-old Ballymena man, who represented Ireland at the Olympics in Rio two years ago, won a Commonwealth Games bronze medal earlier this year in the Gold Coast.

Donnelly then turned professional under the MTK Global banner and made a competent beginning to his paid campaign, outpointing Stourbridge’s Kevin McCauley over four rounds in the super-welterweight division, while there were wins for Marco McCullough and Conrad Cummings across the distance.

And Isaac Lowe warmed up for his October 27 British title rematch challenge against featherweight champion Ryan Walsh, at the Copper Box Arena in London, with a four-round shutout win over Jose Hernandez.

Jackson WAAAAAAYYYY outclassed. And who the hell is in this kid's corner? Tactical mess. He is sitting outside waiting, allowing Frampton to pick him apart. He has to take the skill out of this, turn it into a brawl, get…
