Campbell Hutton, Hobby Price win in Sheffield

Campbell Hutton remained undefeated, but Michal Dovik, of the Czech Republic, won in the full six rounds, on Smith-Omizon bill in Sheffield.

The 21-year-old, son of former British legend Ricky, started well but after looking likely to overwhelm Duvik early on, the fight settled into a pattern where Duvik took few chances.

Dovik, 39, won a majority of 57 matches played but lost every time he advanced in class, and he first came to the UK nine years ago when he gave later lightweight champion Terry Flanagan a few runs.

The fight wasn’t even a minute old when Hatton landed right and left on the body hitting Dovik, who was on the ground moments later even though he was sentenced to slip. But Hutton kept pressing and rocked Dovik with a left hook near the end of the round.

Keep pressing the second, as Dovik mostly covered. One-sided action continued, but Hatton hit the arms often, and was warned on the fourth for a low punch.

Referee Howard Foster scored the score 60-54, while Hutton advanced 8-0.

Featherweight hobbyist Hobby Price moved on to an 8-0 win with a closing points victory over Nicaragua’s Alexandre Mejia in eight rounds.

Bryce is tall and tall, and he didn’t let Mejia get close to him, using his right punch as a measuring stick and then hitting the left in the middle. Mejia did his best to turn under the guard or inside, but when he got close, Bryce was adept at restraining him.

On the seventh, Price picked up the gears, but Mejia was able to hold on to it. Referee Steve Gray scored the score 80-72.

Kieron Conway cornered super middleweight on his way to ultra-lightweight middleweight as he shed some ring rust with a fifth-round layoff from Gregory Trinaul, of France, at the show’s opening.

Conway tied Ted Cheesman for the British title in 2019 and dropped a split decision against Slimane Sissoko in Texas last year. He is scheduled to face Austin Williams over the Kanello-Golovkin bill next month in Las Vegas.

Controlling the movement, Leylin Trinol hit and created holes to the right.

By the fifth round Trinol was holding up and when Conway opened up, he couldn’t pass up. After combining a back-swinging trenol, referee Steve Gray stepped up in 2:22 of the fifth round.

Junaid Bustan moved to the goal 2-0 and the 20-year-old made the stoppage for the second time after beating Spaniard Jose Clavero in the sixth round out of six games.

Bustan has quick hands and mixes his punches well, although his hands style doesn’t leave him open at times, as in the second where he scored with a good shot.

But Clavero had no answer for the strong pressure and versatility that was coming his way, especially when he used his grove of feet to create good corners.

He is also credited with not being content to see the rounds, pressing for a finish in the last round, bringing down an exhausted Clavero with a left hook, and referee Gray waved to him as he touched down in 1:33.

The six-round featherweight match between Nico Lifar and Spain’s Angel Gabriel Chavez ended in a 0:59 technical draw in the second round when he hit a header.

Lifar dominated the first round, showing off a powerful punch and some neat bodywork and looked good on his way to victory in injury time when Chavez ran away with a header that took his knee. And blood spilled from the wound and after a trip to the doctor in the first row, it was noted that it was gone. The referee was Howard Foster.

Aqib Fiyaz, 22, extended his unbeaten record to nine matches with a 59-55 decision on Jordan Ellison from referee Foster at super featherweight.

Vyaz was aggressive and heavy with his shots, but he tended to catch him at times on his way home. Vyas still kept the pressure and looked like he might stop Ellison at the end of the fifth inning when he opened. But Ellison had a tough period and was knocked out in the last round.
