Heavyweight Tom Dallas won his 14th straight fight on Friday night knocking out Hungarian Gabor Farkas in the third round in front of a thousand-plus crowd at the Medway Park Leisure Centre, Gillingham, Kent.
Dallas topped his home town bill on the ‘Battle of Medway’ fight card, which included another six local fighters who won all their respective fights, making it six wins from six for the Kent boxers.
It was a decent performance against the Hungarian journey man. Dallas, a giant of a boxer and very heavy handed, had Farkas hurt in the second with body shots, after a good start from behind his stiff jab and it looked to be a short night for the Chatham prospect.
Dallas (14-0, 10KO’s) looked to try and use varied combinations that came to fruition in the third.
The local hero came out fast, hitting good combinations in the first round, and hurting Farkas in the second with some timely body shots.
Farkas, survived the second, but looked only a matter of time before he would be looking for cover again and after another several head shots knocked the fight from him, he fell to the canvas and the fight was over.
