THE Woodhouse Park Lifestyle Centre, just a couple of minutes drone flight away from Manchester airport, played host to pro boxing for the first time with this four-bout Sunday afternoon offering.

Joe Gallagher, back in the area where he boxed as an amateur and in his guise as M22 Promotions working in association with Kieran Farrell Promotions, served up a Father’s Day offering which I’m 100 per cent certain appealed far more to the dads in the crowd than had the antiques fair I saw signposted on the drive in.

Topping the bill, keeping busy and shaking off a few cobwebs in the process was Liverpool’s Stephen Smith who went in over six with experienced Jamie Quinn from a few miles down the road in Stockport.
