The undercard action at the Resorts World Arena Birmingham showcased three winning fighters with their eyes on the prize. Shakan Pitters won every single round against Joel McIntyre with his piston-like jab and controlling distance effectively. The 6 foot 6 inch Light Heavyweight giant is now hungry for a British title as he mixes it up with some of the best Light Heavyweights in the country.
Cori Gibbs bounced back from his first loss in December 2022 to beat the highly talented Jimmy First and move to 18-1 as a professional. Gibbs used skilled footwork to consistently land shots on First without taking any in return, keeping his composure to see out the fight for a points victory. Meanwhile, exciting young prospect Danny Quartermaine earned the third stoppage victory of his career to move to 9-0, totally outclassing veteran Christian Lopez Flores and knocking him down twice.
The undercard showed that no boxer can be ruled out in boxing as talent runs deep in British boxing. Pitters and Gibbs used footwork and disciplined jabs to outclass their talented opponents, while Quartermaine used every skill in his arsenal to deliver on the biggest stage of his career so far. The level of talent across the board keeps the undercards stacked with quality and proves that a boxer can reach greatness from any position on the card, as long as they have the determination to keep fighting.
