Chris Eubank Wins Rematch To Lead Azim, Mayer and Cullen Wins


In his immediate rematch with Liam “Beefy” Smith (33-3-1, 20 KO’s), middleweight fighter Chris Eubank Jr. (32-3, 23 KO’s) got the satisfying stoppage victory that he was searching for. In a bout that was billed ‘Repeat or Revenge’, Eubank Jr. battered Smith with jabs, pelted him with hooks and hammered him with a staggering amount of uppercuts. Throughout the match Eubank Jr. he did a great job of mixing his shots to the head and body.

Beefy would get dropped in the fourth round and was given a conspicuous amount of time to replace his mouth guard after spitting it out. Later, another barrage of shots forced the beleaguered and largely listless Smith to the canvas in the tenth round. Beefy would find his feet only to find himself quickly under duress against the ropes.

Seeing that Smith was not responding with any offense, referee Kevin Parker hopped in and stopped the abuse. During his post-fight interview, Eubank Jr. would call out a host of fighters including Conor Benn, Kell Brook and Gennady Golovkin.

ADAM AZIM OUTCLASSES ARAM FANIIAN

Following ten rounds of competition, super lightweight boxer Adam “The Assassin” Azim (9-0, 6 KO’s) defeated Aram Faniian (23-2, 5 KO’s) by way of unanimous decision. Throughout the greater bulk of the duel, there was not that much action to speak about. In fact, the first significant outburst did not take place until the eighth round when Azim caught a rhythm and blasted Faniian with a bevy of good shots.

To his credit, the Ukrainian took the punches well and never appeared in any real duress. In the end, his chin could not save Faniian from the judges who ruled in Azim’s favor to the tune of 92-98, 91-99 and 90-100. In his post fight interview, Azim’s promotional team were adamant that Azim will challenge for a European title in his next outing.

MIKAELA MAYER REBOUNDS TO BEAT SILVIA BORTOT

In her most recent tour of duty, super lightweight fighter Mikaela Mayer (19-1, 5 KO’s) picked up a solid win over Silvia Bortot (11-3-1, 3 KO’s). This marks two straight victories since suffering her first professional loss to undisputed super featherweight champion Alycia Baumgardner back on October 15, 2022.

Mayer was able to rather easily dominate the Italian Bortot with movement and her very consistent and accurate jab. While mainly moving backwards, Mayer allowed Bortot to come forward and walk into shots all night long. Bortot never appeared hurt and her face was largely unmarred but she still lost by the lopsided margin of 100-90, nonetheless.

In the aftermath of the prizefight, Mayer called out IBF welterweight champion Natasha Jonas. Despite having just moved up to super lightweight, Mayer said that she wants to jump up again to square off with Jonas in her next match. Stay tuned to 3Kings Boxing to see if this intriguing fight is actually made a reality.

JACK CULLEN SINKS MARK HEFFRON TO THE CANVAS!

In his latest prizefight, super middleweight “Little Leaver Meat Cleaver” Jack Cullen (22-4-1, 10 KO’s) first edged then knocked out Mark “Kid Dynamite” Heffron (29-3-1, 23 KO’s) to snatch away his BBBofC British and Commonwealth Boxing Council titles. The match was fairly even for the three rounds that it lasted.

While neither man was running away with it, Cullen more consistently landed the more meaningful shots – a trend that began with his straight right and expanded to other shots. Then in the third round, as the two men traded hooks, Cullen lodged his left hand dagger into Heffron’s chin. Upon connecting, the champ sank straight down in a twisting heap. Kid Dynamite did make it to his feet but as he walked along the ropes trying to steady himself, he collapsed once again. Naturally this resulted in the fight being immediately waved off and the shifting of hardware from Heffron to Cullen.
