Doncaster • October 4

WITH his proposed Central Area welterweight title bout having been scuppered, Doncaster’s Lewis Booth was forced to make do with a six-rounder at The Dome against Newark’s Fonz Alexander.

It proved a one-sided encounter that with the clock running down looked all set for a shut-out win for the local man – that was until with less than 30 seconds remaining Fonz was tagged coming in and sent to the seat of his shorts.

Alexander, who only seldom visits the canvas, rose with a wry grin on his face as the onlookers cheered before moments later, referee Andy Brook scored it 60-53.
