Former British middleweight champion, Tommy Langford, made a winning start to life as a super middleweight on Saturday evening at Walsall Town Hall.

The BCB Promotions show was sponsored by Alliance Scaffolding, Rhino Brickwork, The Village Birmingham-Walsall and Cimac.

Baggies Bomber Langford, making his first ring return since his two wars with Jason Welborn in 2018 (the first of which was awarded BBBoC Fight of the Year), soaked up some early pressure from Frenchman Baptisie Castegnaro to record a 58-56 points win.

Langford grew into the fight and started to use his brains rather than brawn to record a victory over a genuine super middleweight who has shared a ring with the likes of British Super Middleweight Champion Zach Parker and WBA International Light Heavyweight King, Joshua Buatsi.

Midlands Area Middleweight Champion, Tyler Denny, was also back to winning ways as he moved up through the gears to record a shut-out 60-54 win over Lithuanian Vaidas Ballaluskas.

Wolverhampton’s Conah Walker was scheduled for his first six round contest but this one didn’t make it past the halfway point as ‘the Wolf’ blasted out Arvydas Trizno inside three rounds.

The Ricky Hatton trained fighter inflicted only an 11th stoppage defeat in 116 contests over the usually durable Trizno after a string right-hand caught the Lithuania, who

Complained the shot landed to the top of his cranium.

Fellow Wolverhampton boxer, Kirstie Bavington, emulated Walker with a stoppage win.

‘Bavvo’ went one better than Walker though; battering Bosnia and Herzegovina’s Katarina Vistica into submission inside two rounds.

Finally, Brierley Hill’s Connor Lee Jones was on the front-foot for much of his bout against Ibrar Riyaz, who was in action for the 165th time. The former amateur stand-out boxed well to record a shut-out 40-36 win.
