Saturday nights spectacular Queensbury All Guns Blazing promotion in association with Reisser Screws certainly lived up to all the pre show hype, and the sell out crowd at the Epsom Downs Racecourse in Surrey were treated to a feast of high octane boxing.
In the first of the promotions co main events of the night, Dominic Felix finally realized his dream of lifting the vacant National Light Heavyweight title by beating co challenger Terry Russell. Northampton's Felix had already faced and beaten Russell in a non title affair back on season 4 at the Alexandra Palace in London, and on Saturday night Felix proved once again he was just a little too big, and too skillful for the current Super Middleweight champion by producing the performance of his league career to claim possission of the crown by way of unanimous decision.
In the second of the promotions co main events, National Welterweight title challengers Danny Stalford and Alex Bellingham lit up the arena with an epic affair over 5 pulsating rounds. The contest was filled with both drama and controversy aplenty, with Bellingham appearing to edge the first 3 stanza's of the contest.
In the penultimate round of the clash, proceedings took a turn when referee Ken Curtis ducted a point from Bellingham for persistant holding, and it seemd this warning spurred Surrey's Stalford into feverish action as he seized the initiative in the contest and pushed forward firing in vicious body right the way until the end of the fifth and final round.
When the final bell rang out to end an incredible performance from both men, both Stalford and Bellingham started to celebrate, convinced that victory was assured. After an agonising wait, both boxers were called to the centre of the ring, and was Stalford who was announced the winner much to the disbelief of Bellingham and his supporters. But the drama did not end there, after closer inspection of the score cards ringside shortly after the result, it was revealed that the bout was in fact a majority draw leaving both camps questioning how the mistake could have been made.
Regional Super Middleweight champion Gavin Lissenden survived a second round scare to retain his title with a third round stoppage win over Jake Heasman. In a contender for fight of the night, it looked like the champion was in for an early night after dropping Heasman twice in the opening round, but the teak tough challenger survived the onslaught and bounced back to shock the undefeated champion with a heavy knockdown in the second. But Heasman's hopes of springing the upset were dashed in the very next round, when Lissenden piled the pressure on landing some huge shots that forced the referee to step in saving him from further punishement.
In some of the evenings other title action, regional Light middleweight title contender Kane Baker claimed the vacant title beating co challenger Lee Cannon with a standout performance. Both Baker and Cannon had fallen just short at the regional level in the weight division below, but it was Baker that proved to have the edge in skill claiming the biggest title of his career via a unanimous points victory.
Also novice Middleweight champion Ricky James maintained his unbeaten run retaining his belt after a tough first defence against John Moloney, Daniel "Bomber" Burke edged out George Pickett to claim the vacant novice Light Heavyweight title, and Joe Draper became the new Queensbury Regional Middleweight champion stopping Portsmouth's Tom Bevington in the final round of the contest.
