Cooke who looked nervous on his maiden fight and was content to get his first contest out of the way and now wants to keep busy as he gains experience and moves through the levels.
The crowd again were in a frenzy over this one, with the popular Chorley boy bringing a big following, especially a large female contingent who’s screams were defining in their support of this powerfully built prospect who is coached by Lee Beard.
But to Allen’s credit and bravery he hung in there to the end despite the his young opponents dominance and gave the debutant a good workout. Catterall took the refs verdict 40-37 on his card. – Again another promising prospect to keep an eye on in the coming years.
Overall a very entertaining, well organised and well match boxing show….
