RONNIE HEFFRON V JOHN THAIN – HEFFRON WINS POINTS 96-95
.
This is a good match-up of two talented British contenders. Heffron comes forward in the early stages pushing the fight. Thain is looking to claim centre ring and get behind his jab. Thain starts to build up an early lead and looks good boxing and keeping Heffron at range. Heffron looking to get inside and work to Thain’s body but a few of his punches are going south of the boarder and the referee warns him.
Great scrap here a good mix of styles. Heffron is getting rough inside and again the referee has a word. Both want this bad, it is a real even match-up and the loser will have a few more runs of the ladder to climb, the winner can go on to a possible domestic title fight. Heffron is deducted a point. Thain building a good lead now and going into the 9th it looks like Heffrom needs a KO in the final rounds here…. Heffron fights hard in the last two rounds and its tight at the end both men give it their all. Thain looks to have just nicked it and the lost point could be crucial…. Heffron’s hand is raised he wins the fight 96-95 on the refs card. A rematch is a good call here, Heffron looks happy but relieved, Thain is bitterly disappointed.
