There were mixed fortunes for two local boxers on the Stephen Goodwin promotion at Bethnal Green’s York Hall last Saturday as Daniel Keenan kept his unbeaten record, but Ossie Jervier lost.
Former Dale Youth boxer Keenan, a 20-year-old super welterweight from Ladbroke Groves, took his record to 6-0 with a dominant performance against Ladislav Nemeth.
Keenan’s fast hand speed, allied with landing the more effective blows, saw him win all four rounds to take a 40-36 win against his Slovakian rival.
Jervier, meanwhile, took on Danny Couzens of Titchfield for a Goodwin challenge belt put on by the promoters.
Both fighters came out trading punches, which served up a cracking fight while it lasted.
In round three, a right hook by Couzens dropped Jervier to the canvas, though the Willesden cruiserweight got to his feet.
However, referee Lee Cook called the bout over, prompting protest from Jervier who was keen to carry on.
