Hornchurch’s Sanjeev Sahota bounced to the ring with the all-encompassing confidence of an undefeated fighter when walking out to meet Newark’s Fonz Alexander over four-threes only to be clipped and dropped by a left hook early doors—an early wake up call for the 25-year-old. The fight was a floater, and the home fighter’s hopes were left swinging in the wind after a torrid first session.

Alexander was 4-40 going in, but had stopped two of his victims so the 28-year-old knows how to spring a trap every once in a while. However, he went full on macho in round two and allowed Sahota to tee off for a moment before shaking his head—moving swiftly on from not following to losing the plot within the space of a few surreal moments.

The clean head and temple shots caused both to lurch and brawl their way through the rounds. It had become a post-last orders barroom brawl between two drunks who have spotted the very last dregs of alcohol—Foreman-Lyle on a micro scale and at a much, much lower level.

Sahota carried the final few stanzas to register his fourth win, one by KO, and negated “The Fonz”—that just isn’t cool, man—to close out the final seconds. A scorecard of 38-37 handing him the win. The Fonz falls to 4-41 (2).
