|John Murray successfully defends European title|
Murray is rated No 2 by the WBC and any slip ups, in what turned out to be a potential banana skin of an opponent, would have put paid to any hopes of world glory.
Getting the 12 rounds under his belt wont have done Murray any harm though in this second defence of the European belt, but will surely now need to keep active over the coming months if he is to challenge for a world title.
All boxers are allowed an off night and with 30 good ones behind him to date, this was Murrays. But good fighters always find a way to win and thats what Murray did, dropping Ouazghari in the last round to seal the victory.
Judges final scores were 116-110, 117-111 and 115-112 a unanamous decision for Murray who continues his record as the current longest unbeaten run in British Boxing.
Full report and undercard to follow
Saunders the 2008 Olympian hit Uzan at will and it only looked a matter of time before he would finish his man, who was looking more dazed and confused with Saunders fast punches.
Uzan was dropped at the end of the second round with a good left hook and with no to little hope of having an effect on the 21 year old prospect, the Turk complained of getting caught on his ear as his way out of fight and the referee waved it over before the start of the 3rd session, taking the Hertfordshire based prospects record to 8-0.
