Ovill McKenzie scored a brutal split decision over Matty Askin in defence of his British and Commonwealth Cruiserweight titles.
Both fighters were deducted points, McKenzie for hitting on the back of the head and McKenzie for holding.
Despite the fouls and frustration, Askin showed his boxing quality – keeping behind the jab and moving quickly. But McKenzie’s power was too much and the Jamaican-born ‘Upsetter’ tested Askin’s chin right until the final bell.
McKenzie is now looking forward to a tantalisingly possible world title fight against WBO king Marco Huck.
