At the head of the latest Dennis Hobson promoted show in the car park of the Sheffield Arena, Tommy Frank suffered his second consecutive defeat, as Rosendo Hugo Guarneros defended his IBF Intercontinental Flyweight title with a split decision win over twelve rounds.

The pair were meeting for a rematch of their original December 2020 contest, in which Mexico’s Guarneros forced Frank to retire after eight rounds of action, with the Sheffield native suffering a shoulder injury. Sadly for ‘Super’ Frank, he was unable to avenge that loss here.

The majority of rounds were close affairs, but Guarneros seemed to pull away down the stretch as Frank started to tire. A 115-113 scorecard in favour of the home fighter, was overruled by scores of 115-113 and 117-112 for Guarneros, who retained his belt and has now won three fights on the spin since back-to-back ten round points losses to Sunny Edwards and Adrian Curiel.

Reece Cartwright returned to action for the first time in nearly three years, and he stopped Antony Woolery in the fourth of their scheduled six rounder at Light Heavyweight.

Manchester Super Featherweight, Michael Gomez Junior, had his first outing of 2021, and he took all eight rounds against the durable Cristian Narvaez, who had only been stopped once in 27 previous losses.

At Lightweight, Keanen Wainwright stopped Irvin Magno in two rounds, with the Filipino halted for the first time in his professional career.

Perry Howe recorded his third straight win, and the Sheffield Cruiserweight scored a fourth and final round stoppage of Jevgenijs Andrejevs.

There were three first-timers on the bill all making their debuts. ‘Jumbo’ Jake Andrews took all four rounds at Super Middleweight against Scott Williams, while Adam Sircar did the same in his Lightweight encounter with Jamie Quinn. At Super Featherweight, Linzi Buczynski took a 39-37 verdict in her contest with Gabriella Mezei.
