Having spent a great deal of Friday lampooning the American heavyweight picture and particularly Cedric Boswell, the 39 year old recruited to provide a meaningful benchmark for Roman Greenberg’s soporific progress as a heavyweight. It is with some humility I report that the veteran heavyweight, despite age, and the lack of anything other than a TKO defeat to Jameel McCline in 2003 on his record, still proved too much for Greenberg. Stopping the supposed prospect late in the second.
Welsh hard-man Scott Gammer was forced to retire from his absorbing contest with German based prospect, Francesco Pianeta, due to a suspected broken hand. An injury he must have sustained very earlier in the fight as he threw precious few during the 8 completed rounds. It was particularly hard on the returning former British Heavyweight champion, as he looked well placed following 3 or 4 rounds to get the job done. Pianeta looked pleased not to be forced to accrue any further damage to his right eye, left damaged by Gammer’s meaty left hook.
