Oldham • August 31

JUST four short weeks after Oldham Leisure Centre hosted a show in the dying embers of the old season the gloves were on again for this six-bout Black Flash promotion. It yielded home winners in each contest with four of those victories coming via the short route. Eccleston super-middle Mark Jeffers, full of intent, took his wins tally to double figures with a lightning fast victory over Huddersfield’s experienced Alistair Warren in the nominal bill topper. Warren, having been beaten to the punch, remained on all fours for the duration of referee Steve Gray’s count after being dropped in a neutral corner by a hammer of a right to the body.

It had been slated for six but was all over after just 115 seconds according to MC Phil Seymour. The announcer, who was already struggling with a troublesome heel, was also plagued by microphone problems and at one point had to resort to shouting the details.

Another extending their 100 per cent record was Shaw’s Jack Rafferty who again lived up to his “Demolition Man” moniker. After claiming an early triumph against overseas opposition last time out he scored another one here.
