Cyrus Pattinson And Solomon Dacres Get Impressive Stoppage Wins on DAZN Card
In a high-octane, phonebooth fight, welterweight prospect Cyrus Pattinson (6-0, 4KO) gained a huge victory over veteran Chris Jenkins (23-7-3, 8KO) This fight had the crowd on their feet for the entire contest as both men engaged in a test of will. Pattinson applied effective aggression by coming forward and attacking the body with thudding hooks. Jenkins fired back with body shots and uppercuts, looking to slow down the younger fighter.
As the fight continued, they maintained a blistering punch-output as Pattinson came on strong down the stretch. In the ninth round, Jenkins tried to weather the storm as the younger fighter hit him with everything, including the kitchen sink. The onslaught from Pattinson prompted Jenkins’s corner to throw in the towel as the crowd blew the roof of the arena in awe of what they witnessed. In only six fights, Pattinson captured the WBA International title.
SOLOMON DACRES QUICKLY DISPOSES OF ROBERT ISMAY
In a battle for the English heavyweight crown, Solomon Dacres (6-0, 2KO) made quick work of Robert Ismay (11-1, 4KO). As the fight started, Dacres quickly took control of the contest with the jab. Moreover, he let those hands go early, taking advantage of the slower, overweight Ismay. In the second round, Dacres landed a brutal right hand that had his opponent on wobbly legs. He continued to land hard punches against a severely hurt opponent who was in survival mode. The referee jumped in to stop the fight, preventing Ismay from taking any more punishment. An argument can be made it was an early stoppage, but Ismay was clearly out on his feet. Dacres picks up a good victory along with the English title and undoubtedly will look to go for the Commonwealth title next.
HOPEY PRICE CRUISES TO VICTORY OVER THOMAS MASSON
In a super bantamweight showdown, Hopey Price (10-0, 3KO) out-boxed former flyweight title challenger Thomas Masson (20-6-1, 7KO). Price is a decorated amateur standout that won a gold medal in the 2018 Youth Olympic games and world championships. In this fight, he used those long arms to keep the former title challenger at the end of the jab throughout the fight. The young man kept veteran Masson from finding a rhythm by using combination punches, angles, good footwork, and punch-variation to maintain control of the fight. It wasn’t the most entertaining contest, evident by the crowd never getting into it. However, sometimes in the sport, it’s important to win first and look good next time. At the sound of the final bell, the judges scored it 100-90, 99-91, and 98-92 in favor of Price, who walks away as the new WBA Continental titlist. 3Kings Boxing agrees with the middle scorecard.
