Rising super-featherweight star Gully Powar moves up to 11-0 less than two years after turning pro

Gully Powar put in another assured clinical performance with a shut-out points win against Joshua Ocampo in the main event at the Hangar Venue in Wolverhampton on BCB Promotions Pride of the Black Country.

The 21-year-old from Wolverhampton is one of the most active prospects in the Midlands, and his 11th win in just 20 months as a professional was arguably his most impressive as he frustrated and dominated his Colombian opponent, who barely landed a glove on him.

Powar may lack a high knockout ratio, but he is starting to sit down on his shots and keep up a high intensity throughout the six rounds.

Ocampo was doing his best to make the fight ugly, and both men went tumbling to the canvas after a messy exchange, but Powar kept to his game plan, finishing the fight strongly and taking the 60-54 point decision on referee Ryan Churchill’s score card.

Brandon Bethell vs Jayro Fernando Duran

Brandon Bethell turned a boxing show into an Oasis gig with his Liam Gallagher-inspired ring walk, which went down a storm with his army of fans.

The 22-year-old from Wolverhampton didn’t let the theatrical entrance distract him, as he didn’t wait for any feeling-out process; instead, he went straight to the body of his Honduran opponent, Jayro Fernando Duran, ripping in left and rights with a sustained attack that would have stopped most.

The experienced Duran switched southpaw and started to tuck up as Bethell continued to push the pace in the middle rounds.
