The second bout of the night, between Adam Dingsdale and Jason Nesbitt, also didnt make the distance, but for a totally different reason.
Highly rated unbeaten prospect Dingsdale started strong, taking the fight to the highly experienced Nesbitt. The Hoo, Kent man kept Nesbitt on the back foot throughout the first round, launching some wicked combinations behind his solid jabbing.
The canny Nesbitt kept a high guard as he played a waiting game and looking for any openings the Dingsdale may leave. He didnt find that many in the first but the second was a much more open affair, however this wasnt to last as in the final minute of the round Nesbitt dislocated his shoulder.
Determined to see the round out Nesbitt tried to box and defend with just the one arm. Dingsdale, who, as was everyone ringside, was aware that the Birmingham man was in distress and just used his jab until the bell went.
It came as no surprise to anyone that Nesbitts corner retired their man in the corner, so he could receive medical treatment.
