Zelfa “Brown Flash” Barrett (17-0, 10KOS) put on the best display of his career so far to outpoint the experienced durable Nicaraguan Eusebio Osejo, (28-21-3, 8KOs) (99-90) at Bolton’s Macron Stadium on Saturday night (May 19)
Last year Osejo had fought a draw with former world champion Kiko Martinez. After that he lost a close decision to Oleg Malynovsky for the European title. He has also been the distance with former world champion Jhonny Gonzalez. And holds a win over US prospect John ‘Action’ Jackson. But against rising Mancunian rookie Barrett he had no answers and was outboxed, out fought and dropped twice in a good main event in Bolton.
