MICHAEL GOMEZ JUNIOR got back on track with a routine points win. Gomez, from Moston in Manchester, was suspended by the British Boxing Board of Control after an outburst back in March but returned from his enforced hiatus with a win over Joe Beeden. The fight was featured on a Frank Duffin promotion at Colne’s Municipal Hall, in association with Heatseeker Boxing and Maree Boxing.

The referee, Jamie Kirkpatrick, saw the fight as a shutout in favour off the Kevin Maree-managed Gomez Jnr –– whose father was in the corner on the night –– and awarded it 40-36 against the Swindon man.

Next up for the prospect is a September 28 outing at Middleton Arena before, providing he comes through unscathed, a fourth fight of the year on November 2 at the King George’s Hall in Blackburn.
