BCB Promotions’ final event of 2019 ended in convincing victory for all four home fighters on show.

‘Season’s Beatings’ took place at the Holiday Inn Birmingham on Saturday evening (December 21) and featured a trio of Brummies, with a Newark man thrown in for good measure.

Mussab Abubaker – known as “Breaker” – topped the bill as he looked to secure a fourth consecutive win since turning professional in 2017. The 24-year-old did just that as he went through the gears to record a shutout 40-36 triumph over former white-collar boxer, Scott Williams, on referee-for-the-evening Shaun Messer’s scorecard.

Former Midlands Area champion, Kane Baker, returned to winning ways after his unsuccessful English title tilt in November. “The Shadow”, newly signed to BCB in both a management and training deal, enjoyed a useful six rounds against Swindon’s Joe Beeden.

Baker will be looking to get back in title contention in 2020 and enjoyed the perfect pre-Christmas run-out with a comfortable 60-54 victory.

The third Brummie in action, Matthew “Swiggy” Craddock, made it 2-0 since turning professional just last month. The 29-year-old disposed of Hull’s Luke Fash, again by shutout, over four rounds.

Completing the card was Regis Sugden. The Newark fighter stepped in at short notice to replace his brother, Chad, who took a late-notice fight against Craig Richards two days previously. Regis, the younger of the boxing brothers, moved to 5-0 as he too recorded a shutout 40-36 win over Kevin McCauley.

BCB Promotions’ first show of the new year will take place at Walsall FC on Valentine’s Day (February 14, 2020).
