On Sunday 29th March, Pryzm Superclub hosted a fantastic afternoon of championship boxing! Promoted by ex-professional Lee Murtagh, the star of the show was heavyweight Graham Mattison who won the EBF Northern Area Heavyweight title in a thrilling fight!
After being knocked down by a left hook only ten seconds into the opening round, Mattison was on the back-foot. His opponent Richard Leak continued to put pressure on him and Mattison had to dig deep to hang on early in the fight and survive the first round.
Mattison then turned the fight on its head and went on the attack in the second round. After landing a series of heavy blows, the referee stopped the fight to give Mattison a knock-out victory. It was an enthralling, exciting and wild fight that undoubtably stole the show.
Mattison later said about the fight: “When I was sat on the floor, I realised I’d promised that my daughter would take the belt to school! I found something in my self to get up and win.”
It was a fantastic event at Pryzm and it was enjoyed by everyone in attendance! You can check out Graham’s boxing club Bethlehem Boxing at www.bethlehemboxing.com
