Altrincham • July 19

ALTRINCHAM’S Planet Ice played host not only to pro boxing for the first time but to the latest instalment of the Ultimate Boxxer series, this one featuring the heavy hitters up in the cruiserweight division.

At the conclusion of an exciting evening Londoner Mikael Lawal skated off with the prize-winner’s cheque along with the Golden Robe after sending pre-tournament favourite Damian Chambers of Dukinfield, Manchester heavily to the canvas with just 94 seconds of the final having elapsed.

Referee Mark Lyson waved it off at a count of six to allow medics to attend the beaten man, who had been floored by a booming left just a split second after seeing his own purposeful right miss by the merest whisker.
