BEN FIELDS carried on his gatecrashing streak at the Eventim Olympia. The Digbeth man has now won his last three after taking yet another unbeaten record. Atop the latest North West offering from VIP Promotions head honcho Steve Wood, Fields took on hometown man Nathan Bennett, exclusively live on VIP Boxing TV, and came out with a close 58-57 points win on referee Jamie Kirkpatrick’s tally.
Meanwhile, local duo Tom Aitchison and Marcos Molloy both impressed on their first starts overseen by Mark Lyson. Aitchinson ripped in vicious body shots against Blackwood’s Paul Ducie en route to a 40-36 victory, while Molloy was victorious by the same margin against Devon’s Jamie Speight.
Liverpool’s Tom Farrell returned with a 60-53 points win over the latest product from the Spanish-based Nicaraguan journeymen conveyor belt, Eligio Palacios, who was dropped in the third, in a cobweb-blowing exercise officiated by Kirkpatrick. Farrell now moves on to his fight with Sean Dodd next month.
