Accomplished amateur Cherrelle ‘Hummingbird’ Brown stole the show at British Warriors Boxing Promotions at York Hall on Saturday night in her 5th professional contest.
Making her professional debut just over a year ago, Brown faced Lithuanian Vaida Masiokaite in a 6 round contest. Showboating from round 1, Brown won the fight with ease, displaying a varied performance as well as being awarded a knockdown early in the fight.
As Women’s Boxing in the UK continues to rise, it’s going to be a big next 12 months for the Londoner who is likely to be keen to add to her collection of belts won during her amateur days.
Other highlights from an action packed night at York Hall included:
Super-Featherweight Andre Grant moved to 5-0 in a shut-out points victory over Jake Pollard. Originally advertised as what would have been Grant’s first 6 rounder, the fight ended up taking place over 4 rounds in what was an impressive defensive performance from Grant.
Heavyweight Ryan Charles recorded the first stoppage of his career against Miles Willington who previously had never been stopped. Willington who weighed in at 271 pounds in his last fight succumbed to Charles’ power which pushes the 32 year old onto 5-0.
Welshman Lance Cooksey made extremely short work of Aleksandrs Birkenbergs inside 40 seconds. Cooksey who has just moved down in weight from Lightweight to Super-Featherweight improved his professional record to 9-0 as well as doubling the amount of stoppages in his career to two.
Immediately after the fight, Lance told ESBR that he plans to fight for the Welsh Super-Featherweight title later this year.
The impressive Germaine Brown impressed in the first 6 round contest of his career against a very durable opponent.
Backed by a strong crowd, Brown was boxing against a last-minute opponent after a late dropout, producing a dominant display in the process.
