The final round again saw Butcher pile on the pressure landing punch after punch with only the occasional reply from Kirby. It came as no surprise at the final bell that the judges gave the bout to Butcher unanimously.

Daniel Davis in his second bout for Kingfisher ABC met D Scott of Goldstar ABC over three two-minute rounds. Davis was not at his best in the first round but looked a different boxer in the second round. Moving forward behind a strong left jab, he found his range and once he had followed it with a right to Scott’s head. Closing the ring down and with good head movement, Davis took control and at the halfway point landed a long-range right that knocked Scott to the canvas.

Davis kept up the pressure and Scott looked tired standing with his legs straight and his hands near his waist. The Kingfisher took advantage scoring with a right left then hooks to body and head. Scott was only saved by the bell and looked a sorry sight as he slowly made his way back to his corner. Scott at the start of the third he came out a tried to box using a left to keep Davis at distance.

It was only a matter of time before the Goldstar boxer could run no more trapped in the corner Davis unleashed a flurry of punches for no reply forcing the referee to give a standing count.

Davis stepped straight in as the bout resumed with a left right that forced the referee to stop the contest.

The final Kingfisher ABC representative of the night Dan Brown met J Ellis of Goldstar ABC in a Super Heavyweight contest. From the start Ellis looked total overwhelmed by the occasion consistently looking over to his corner for help. Brown dominated the contest for its entire 75 seconds and landed several rights that had Ellis doubled over with his hands over his head. Brown stopped the bout with a straight left right followed by a powerful right hook to the ribs of Ellis and his corner to threw in the towel.
