Rosendo Hugo Guarneros repeats his victory over Tommy Frank in Sheffield. Andy Whittle studies
AN injured left shoulder put paid to the hopes of native flyweight Tommy Frank when he first fought Rosendo Hugo Guarneros on Dennis Hobson’s drive-in boxing occasion in the primary Sheffield Area automobile park in December. On the finish of their rematch within the overspill automobile park, it was the Mexican customer who was left celebrating as soon as once more – the recipient of a break up resolution victory.
I assumed Tommy, compelled to work off the again foot for lengthy durations by the extra aggressive Guarneros, was only a spark off the tempo. He was scoring, with some crisp, clear photographs too, however I didn’t assume he was touchdown sufficient within the nearer center rounds. I saved anticipating him to kick on nevertheless it by no means actually occurred. In the meantime, the terrier-like Guarneros, admittedly not all the time essentially the most correct together with his work, simply saved chasing. He refused to give up his early-won beneficial properties and made certain within the later rounds.
Howard Foster had Frank 115-113 forward on the end, however Phil Edwards and Darren Sarginson each scored in favour of Guarneros – 117-112 and 115-113 respectively. For what it’s value, I had Guarneros profitable 116-112. The referee was Steve Grey.
Only one second remained within the fourth of a scheduled six-rounder between Reece Cartwright of Leeds and Wolverhampton’s Antony Woolery when referee Sarginson waved a halt to proceedings. A spell of sustained stress from Cartwright prompted his motion.
Already three rounds to the nice, Reece noticeably quickened the tempo going into the second half and Antony discovered himself more and more beneath hearth and having to work off the again foot. The late burst, scorching on the heels of a more-than-decent left cross, signalled one other gear change and there would probably have been extra of the identical had it been allowed to go on.
One other inside-the-distance winner was Sheffield’s Keanen Wainwright, who wanted lower than two rounds of a bout slated for eight handy Buxton’s often sturdy Irvin Magno the primary stoppage lack of his profession. There was actually no trigger for criticism on the resolution of referee Sarginson, which got here with 15 seconds of the spherical to go. Irvin was nonetheless unsteady regardless of having risen after being despatched to the canvas.
Manchester’s Michael Gomez Jnr appeared sharp in opposition to robust Nicaraguan Cristian Narvaez. The gritty Narvaez did what the Nicaraguan ‘opponents’ do finest – he dug in, soaked up the stress and replied simply sufficient to maintain it attention-grabbing. However in the primary, it was a case of Michael urgent behind the jab and scoring with neat combos and common uppercuts. It got here as no shock that referee Andy Brook ought to flip in a card studying 80-72 to Gomez.
Common native Perry Howe recorded his first inside-schedule win by halting vastly skilled but restricted Latvian Jevgenijs Andrejevs at 2-32 of the third and penultimate spherical. Andrejevs’ lengthy black hair recurrently fashioned a curtain throughout his face, which couldn’t have helped his trigger. Even the appliance of copious quantities of tape by his nook didn’t handle to resolve the issue. At one level he had extra tape in his hair than he did on his gloves. A great advert for the producer, little doubt. Mr Brook officiated.
The primary bout on the present was a feminine four-twos between Bolton first-timer Linzi Buczynski and an everyday customer from Romania within the form of Gabriella Mezei. The debuting Buczynski, rising in confidence as the competition progressed, ran out a 39-37 winner for Mr Brook. Nonetheless, Mezei made certain that there was by no means an excessive amount of daylight between the pair.
There have been shutout 40-36 wins for 2 extra new starters, the primary of these being Buxton’s Adam Sircar. Busy all through, Sircar got here out on high on the conclusion of a watchable encounter with Stockport centurion Jamie Quinn. There was a victory too for Salford’s exceedingly common Jake “Jumbo” Andrews, who delighted his military of supporters by bossing proceedings in opposition to Trafford’s sport Scott Williams. The respective referees had been Mr Sarginson and Mr Brook.
The Verdict Some terrible climate and a lacklustre exhibiting from the England soccer workforce units the scene for a house defeat in the primary occasion.
