New Welterweight Champion – 5 July 2014

What a night, what a crowd, what a bout. Cameron ‘The Hammer’ Hammond impressed his local supporters and U.K promoter Ricky Hatton in a tough 10 rounder.  From the opening bell the Argentinian showed he would be hard to tag and, although Hammond was in control, it took him a couple of rounds to find his mark. Hammond was rarely troubled as he secured a unanimous points decision. Spirited toe-to-toe exchanges raised the roof of the old town hall. Alfredo Blanco did his country proud as did Hammond who as set his presence on the international scene.
