Lee Woodshu Kane sensationally halted in the 12th round to become the new WBA featherweight champion, sending the Nottingham man hitting the canvas with his big right hand and then a stunning victory over his Chinese opponent to become Britain’s newest world champion. In the first rounds, Wood captured the center of the ring, faced the case with a heavy blow and his right hand was brittle, blood dripping from Kane’s nose after he had been deeply shocked in the sixth, while Wood emptied a crunchy formula in the eighth. Photo: Wood’s superior strength gave him an advantage from the first rounds in the closing rounds, forcing Wood Can on the back foot with a mischievous blow to the head and body. His right hand knocked Jeanne off the board on the 12th, and Wood followed up with a ferocious attack to force referee Marcus McDonnell to intervene. On the bottom card, Chris Bellam Smith edged out Tommy McCarthy in a split decision to claim the European, British and Commonwealth cruiserweight titles. Bellam Smith fought more urgently after the halfway stage, upsetting McCarthy with a left hook in eighth, and both men exchanged fierce shots from close range in twelfth. Photo: Chris Bellam Smith defeated Tommy McCarthy by split decision that got McCarthy 115-114, but the other two judges favored Bellam Smith with 115-114 and 116-112. Referee closing points on Jacob Laszkowski to achieve his third professional win. Photo: Campbell Hutton cemented his unbeaten record to three wins, the 20-year-old, son of former world champion Ricky Hatton, upset his Polish opponent with relentless pressure to earn the 40-36 rule after four rounds, as Anthony Fowler broke morale. German Rico Muller resisted by winning the eighth round by stopping.
