Results round-up: Williams, Craig Evans, Tobias Webb and Dale Evans all win

Results round-up: Williams, Craig Evans, Tobias Webb and Dale Evans all win

Last night, Liam ‘The Machine’ Williams (12-0-1, 7KO) collected his first career title with a one round knockout of Essex’s experienced Michael ‘The Look’ Lomax (21-7-1, 4KO).

The 22-year-old from Clydach Vale in the Rhondda Valleys is now the Commonwealth light-middleweight champion after just 13 professional fights. In stopping Lomax, Williams joins the likes of Kell Brook and Frankie Gavin, who then later went on to compete at world level.

It marks a breakthrough year for the Welshman who has scored four stoppage wins against the durable Youri Pompilio, only once beaten Ronnie Heffron, usually tough Stepan Horvath and now Lomax. Prior to tonight’s fight, Lomax was on a two fight winning streak, which included a decision win over Chas Symonds for the British Masters Gold title in September. In 2008, Lomax won the Prizefighter tournament, which suited the southpaw style that led him to an ABA title as an amateur.

Blackwood’s Craig Evans (13-0, 3KO) scored the best win of his career on the undercard of Frank Warren’s show at the Hilton Hotel in Mayfair, London. The super-featherweight from Blackwood beat Scotland’s notoriously tough Ronnie Clark (12-2-2, 6KO) on points in a ten round contest, courtesy of a 98-93 scorecard.

Evans has been a professional for over four years but had to wait for the tests he has wanted. Earlier this year, Evans agreed to fight former Olympian Joe Murray, only for the Englishman to withdraw. However, Evans has been given an opportunity and taken with both hands to make his mark in the 130lb mix.

It’s very likely that the southpaw, who trains under Tony Borg at St Joseph’s Boxing Club in Newport, will compete for a title at the start of 2015. Evans has now put himself in a position to be nominated by the British Boxing Board of Control (BBBoC) to compete in an eliminator.

The 25-year-old will now have an eye on the winner of December 6th’s British title eliminator between part-Welshman Maxi Hughes and Martin J Ward in London.

On Saturday, Tobias ‘The Gentleman’ Webb (15-2-1, 2KO) won all six rounds against the durable journeyman, Elvis Dube (6-30-2, 5KO). The Welsh super-middleweight champion from Swansea returned on a Steve Woods show in Blackburn, appearing for the first time since being stopped in his WBC International title challenge against Callum Smith in May.

Next up, Webb will face two time ABA champion Liam Cameron (17-3, 6KO) on 13th December in Sheffield on a show promoted by Dennis Hobson at the Hillsborogh Leisure Centre. The ten rounder will double up as a Commonwealth title eliminator.

On Friday, Carmarthen’s welterweight Dale Evans (9-1-2, 3KO) outpointed Adam Grabiec (4-11) on a show promoted by Mickey Helliet in Camden, London. The former Prizefighter finalist was fighting for the first time since suffering a horror eye injury in a Technical Draw against Mark Douglas in May. With the ring rust now shred, the exciting puncher is planning to return to the ring soon in the new year.
