Dominic Shchukin defeated Bashir Sadiq by KO in round 1.
Matt Garlett vs. Sipho Taliwe
Competitive fight which saw Garlett dominate the early rounds Garlett and drop Taliwe with a left hook in the 4th round. Taliwe lost a point in Round 5 for head butting which hurt him on the cards. Taliwe was much better in the later rounds and landed some effective shots but it was all too late.
Garlett defeated Taliwe via Unanimous Decision (115-111, 115-111, 116-110)
Garth Wood vs. Virgil Kalakoda
After nothing really happened in the first round; Garth comes out and unloads on Kalakoda on route to a TKO victory.
Wood defeated Kalakoda via TKO in round 2.
Will Tomlinson vs. Malcolm Klassen
Will wanted to brawl in this fight but Klassen was far to slick and evasive. Tomlinson scored what was called a knock down in the first round (but looked more like a judo throw). After some competitive rounds Tomlinson was caught with a right hand in Round 3 and was cut over the left eye; he was then cut again badly over the same eye in the 8th round. Final few rounds were intense, both boys left it all in the ring.
Will Tomlinson defeated Malcolm Klassen by Unanimous Decision (117-110, 118-109, 118-109)
