Heppinstall, after trying to intimidate Barry before the opening bell, was fast on the attack as she looked to land her heavy shots.

Barry remained calm and chose to not get involved and managed to outbox her Yorkshire opponent.

This was the common theme throughout the bout, using her straight shots Barry was able to pierce the guard and register scoring shots to which Heppinstall had little answer for.

Freddie Carman was the next representative from Boston, matched against Farhan Kamran of the Purge ABC.

Kamran, a tall southpaw, naturally opted to box from range with his long lead hand attacks and this made it difficult for the shorter Carman to get into his range and resulted in him trying to barrage his way in with quick fire punches to get a foothold in the contest.

This did bring some success as Carman got himself into closer quarters Kamran looked to tie him up, the referee broke and would be back to range where it suited the Leeds lad.

A frustrating night for the Boston lad who was on the wrong side of a points decision, but admirably Carman gave a good account of himself, stuck to his task and worked hard throughout and never gave up trying.
