Here is the 1 minute promotional video for the fight.
Here is the full fight including the entrance, introductions, 3 x 2 minute rounds, the result & finally, Ian and Tony instantaneously becoming life-long friends once again.
Fantastic night including West Side Gym Boxing Club boxers who also demonstrated fantastic skills and great respect for each other at the end of each fight. They were all an absolute credit to their excellent coaching team: John Holland (head coach), Barry Jones (former IBF and intercontinental Champion), Harry Holland and Joe Ackary. The work that these guys put in, week in, week out, is simply phenomenal.
