Early Daws against Jamie Speight

Nottingham • July 27

HARD-working Carl Greaves’ latest promotion, in the Albany Suite at the Britannia Hotel, comprised five bouts: a trio of four-rounders that went the distance and two scheduled sixes which finished early, one very early.

That very early one lasted just 40 seconds. Referee-for-the-night Shaun Messer intervened as usually durable Devon operator Jamie Speight, wobbled by a left behind the ear from Carlton’s Brad Daws, cowered in his opponent’s corner having also been tagged by a punishing left downstairs.

Brad had taken a mere 35 seconds to see off his previous opponent, so is on something of a roll.
