Hall vs Power
Stuart Hall will battle Martin Power for the British Bantamweight title in a rematch of a great fight that occurred just ten months ago.
In the first fight, Hall came back to stop Power in eight rounds, despite suffering a cut on his head in the very first round. Hall has a record of 8-0-1 with four knockouts and won the British title with an eighth round stoppage over the much more experienced Ian Napa on June 4th.
Power has a record of 21-5 with nine knockouts and is a former British Bantamweight champion himself. Power won his first sixteen fights before winning the British crown with a twelve round unanimous decision over Dale Robinson (17-1) on May 20, 2005. Power defended the belt twice, including a win over Napa before stepping up and being stopped in nine by Tshifhiwa Munyai for the vacant Commonwealth title. Seven months later, Munyai stopped Power in four in the rematch.
Despite the losses, Power still had British title but that was short lived as Napa came back to take a twelve round unanimous decision to claim the British title. After losing to Hall, Power won his last bout when he stopped Matthew Edmonds (10-3) on December 11th in five rounds.
In the ten round co-feature, Dean Harrison will battle Nigel Wright for the vacant English Jr. Welterweight title. Harrison has a record of 16-3 with five knockouts and will be fighting for the fourth time with a belt on the line. This past March 14th, Harrison captured the Midlands Jr. Welterweight title with a first round knockout over Ben Lawler. Wright has a record of 21-6 with nine knockouts. He is no stranger to championship fights himself as this will be his ninth fight for a belt. After going 12-1 in his first thirteen bouts, Wright won the English Light Welterweight title with a seventh round stoppage over Dean Hickman in 2005. He reclaimed the English Light Welterweight title with decision over Gary Reid and retained it with a draw with Daws in the rematch. In his last bout, Wright scored an eight round decision over former world champion, Alex Arthur (27-2) on December 5th in New Castle.
Another exciting bout featuring 2008 Olympic Bronze Medal winner, Tony Jeffries (8-0, 5 KOs) will battle Michael Banbula (10-25-3) in a Light Heavyweight bout scheduled for eight rounds.
