Liverpool • August 2

AFTER being pipped at the post by Preston’s Scott Fitzgerald in a thriller next door at the Arena a little over four months earlier, Liverpool super-welter Anthony Fowler returned up at middle in this 10-rounder against Blackpool’s former world title challenger Brian Rose.

Fowler won the vacant WBO Inter-Continental strap with a unanimous decision with judges Mike Alexander, Howard Foster and Terry O’Connor scoring 98-92, 98-92 and 97-93 respectively at the Conference Centre.

Action early doors proved advantageous to the busier, more industrious home fighter, who by the halfway stage was already leading by quite a margin. Brian, jabbing, was coming back towards the end of sessions but not with sufficient sustained work for it to make a difference.
