Zach Parker, Reece McFadden Secure Wins in Glasgow

By Jake Donovan

With plenty of time to kill before the evening's final preliminary bout beneath the World Boxing Super Series doubleheader, local super bantamweight Reece McFadden saw his swing bout bumped up to the DAZN live stream portion of Saturday's show at SSE Hydro in Glasgow, Scotland.

Not much came of it, other than the first-year pro cruising to a four-round decision over Bulgaria's Georgi Georgiev (7-15-1, 4KOs). Referee Darren McFadden was the lone scorer, turning in a 40-36 tally in favor of McFadden (3-0, 1KO), who hails from nearby Motherwell, Scotland.

All four rounds were mirror images of one another, with McFadden coming forward and pressing the action but at no point ever posing the threat of an early ending. Georgiev offered little in the way of a competitive effort, simply happy to share the ring with the local favorite as he was outworked in every sequence of every round.


Zach Parker had a much easier go of things than in his previous appearance in this arena.

Of course, the unbeaten super middleweight was also presented with a less challenging opponent this time around, having his way with France’s Steve Crambert in scoring a one-sided 4th round stoppage win.

England’s Parker struggled to a controversial split decision win over previously unbeaten Darryll Williams last November, on the undercard of Taylor’s 7th round knockout of Ryan Martin to advance to Saturday’s semifinals. There was no such controversy here, although the bout never really advanced beyond a stick and move pace until its sudden ending.

The only wrinkle came in Parker (18-0, 12KOs) switching between orthodox and southpaw stance. Crambert (8-5, 1KO) barely put up a challenge in his first career fight outside of France, seemingly content with simply going rounds. Parker took advantage of his opponent’s reluctance, picking him apart with long jabs and straight right and left hands from both sides of the plate.

Patience eventually paid off for Parker, who pinned Crambert along the ropes and began to unload with power punches. With nothing coming back in return, the referee decided that the hesitant Frenchman was done for the night, stopping the contest at 2:32 of round four.

Crambert and his corner protested the stoppage, although the fight they put up at that point was far more aggressive than anything offered in the ring.
