Papot vs. El Massoudi

Fighting in front of his home fans Papot makes a successful second defence of his French title. Despite his mediocre record El Massoudi gave Papot some anxious moments early in the fight as he hustled and harried Papot relentlessly and a left hook in the third sent Papot tumbling into the ropes. El Massoudi was cut over the right eye in a clash of heads but survived a physician’s inspection. Papot slowly brought his superior skills to bear and from the sixth onwards used his speed and accuracy to put the fight out of the challenger’s reach. El Massoudi pressed hard to the end but Papot was the winner. Scores 97-93 twice and a harsh 98-92 all for Papot. The 27-year-old southpaw was making the second defence of the national title. He is No 16 in the EU ratings so will be looking to challenge for the EU title and then go on to get a shot at the European title. El Massoudi has now lost 6 of his last 7 fights.

Christchurch, New Zealand: Welter: Bowyn Morgan (16-1) W KO 8 Andres Rodriguez (9-7) Home town fighter Morgan makes it nine wins in a row as he beats Rodriguez. The visitor from Mexico absorbed heavy punishment but kept fighting back. He was slowly ground down by punches to head and body from Morgan and was badly shaken in the sixth and seventh. Morgan finally ended it in the eighth. A series of punches put Rodriguez down and although he beat the count he was floored again and counted out. The 29-year-old New Zealand champion from Christchurch was New Zealand amateur champion in 2011, 2012 and 2013 and was a quarter-finalist at the 2014 Commonwealth Games. His only pro loss came in 2016 against the current Commonwealth champion Kris George. Going in Rodriguez was having only his second fight in four years and his first for 11 months. This is his second loss by KO/TKO.
