Prospect Ryan Martin fights through an exciting draw

Swindon • September 28

SWINDON’S Ryan Martin was held to an exciting 77-77 point draw over eight-threes on Lee Every’s tally against Ohio kain Iremiren in headlining a Nielson Promotion’s card at the Oasis Leisure Centre.

Ryan took the opening session on my card as he punished the unorthodox Eltham opponent with repeated rights over a casually-low left hand. The warning signs were out early for Ryan however, as Iremiren was strong, sharp and positive. He took the initiative to walk in and land first over the next two sessions that were hard to score.

Boxing from a wide stance and with a straight back, Ohio found frequent success midway when the pair traded by launching ripping and slashing combinations that Ryan struggled to navigate.
