The 28-year-old put in a punch perfect performance to record a shut-out 80-72 points win over Ambomo on BCB Promotions’ ‘The Heat Is On’ show at Walsall Town Hall on Saturday evening.

The Rowley Regis fighter worked his way through the gears and picked his shots well to outbox the former Olympian, who himself was coming off the back of an impressive victory over the previously unbeaten Ramon Perez.

“I felt good in there,” said the former Midlands Area middleweight champion and English title contender. “Ambomo is a short, sticky fighter who carries a bit of power but I felt I hurt him and boxed well.

“I want another title shot now. I’ve given up the Midlands (Area Title) to pursue bigger fights. I’m ready and willing to fight anyone.”

Wolverhampton’s Sid Bowater returned to the ring for the first time in more than two years to see off Fonz Alexander over four rounds.

Roared on by a buoyant crowd, Bowater looked fit and sharp on his ring return as he recorded a 40-36 win.

‘Tipton Slasher’ Lee Glover overcame ‘Mad Man’ Michael Mooney over four rounds and blew away the cobwebs to record a 39-37 win against the Worcester man, who more than played his part.

Walsall ‘s Levi Ferguson got his second six-rounder in the bag and swerved the potential banana skin that is Nathan Hardy. The former Pleck ABC man edged past Sheffield’s Hardy, a serial upsetter, 58-57.

Burtnwood’s Troi Coleman took his professional record to 5-0 as he defeated Stoke’s Owen Jobburn 40-36.
