By Ken Hissner: At the York Hall, Bethnal Green, London, UK, Friday over ESPN+ Lee Eaton (MTK Global) presented in the Main Event WBC International Featherweight champion Isaac “Westgate Warrior” Lowe who was stopped by Louis “El Venado” Lopez in 7 rounds after two earlier knockdowns and the final one halting the fight.
In the co-feature, former WBC World Flyweight champion Charlie Edwards stopped Jacob “Caco” Barreto in 2 rounds.
In the Main Event WBC, Int’l Featherweight champion and No. 10 ranked Isaac “Westgate Warrior” Lowe, 21-1-3 (6), #125, of Morecambe, Lancashire, UK, was stopped by Louis “El Venado” Lopez, 24-2 (13), #125, of Mexicali, MEX, at 2:38 of the seventh round of a 12 with Lowe suffering a total of 3 knockdowns.
In the first round, after ten seconds, Lowe was knocked down by a left hook from Lopez on the chin for an 8-count by referee Marcus McDonnell. Lowe came back well, taking it to Lopez before getting nailed with a minute left in the round with a combination to the head.
In the second round at the halfway point, Lowe was knocked down by an overhand right from Lopez on the chin for an 8-count from referee McDonnell. Again like after the first knockdown, Lowe got up and came fighting back well.
In the third round, Lowe came back well in a close round. In the fourth round at the halfway point, Lowe rocked Lopez with a right on the chin doing well enough to take the two rounds. In the fifth round, Lowe was warned about using his head. For the rest of the round and the sixth round, both fighters had their moments. The two knockdowns were the difference through six rounds.
In the seventh round, Lowe continued coming forward. In the final minute, a left uppercut to the body from Lopez hurt Lowe, and three more punches to the head followed, and down went Lowe. He took a 9-count, but upon getting up, referee McDonnell waved it off. Lowe wasn’t pleased with the stoppage.
In the co-feature, former WBC World Flyweight champion Charley Edwards, 17-1 (7), #118 ¼, of Epsom, Surrey, UK, stopped Jacob “Caco” Barreto, 13-4 (5), #119, of Santa Cruz de Tenerife, Islas, Canarias, Spain, at 1:35 of the second of an 8.
In the second round, Barreto turned southpaw, trying to avoid Edwards landing solid left hooks. Edwards dropped Barreto with a left to the head. Barreto took the count sitting on the canvas from referee Lee Every.
Welterweight southpaw Elliott Whale, 5-0 (1), #149, of Kent, UK, defeated Miroslav “Lumberjack” Serban, 13-8 (7), #148 ½, of Skastice, Czech Republic, over six rounds.
In the first five rounds, the taller southpaw Whale countered the oncoming Serban, working the body and head. Serban, hands held high, did little on offense, though the aggressor. In the sixth and final round, Serban finally opened up a bit but was completely outpunched.
Referee Lee Every scored it 60-54.
Super welterweight southpaw Carl Fall, 4-0 (2), #157 ½, of Northampton, UK, defeated Jose Manuel Lopez Clavero, 16-17-1 (5), #157 ¼, of Granada, Andalucia, Spain, over six rounds.
In the first round, Fall dropped Clavero with a right to the head late in the round for an 8-count by referee Lee Every. He had his way the rest of the bout. The final score was 60-53.
