Jeamie TKV vs Jake Darnell
London heavyweight Jeamie TKV became the second consecutive fighter to stop Jake Darnell in a round on BOXXER shows following Olympic bronze medalist Frazer Clarke’s first-round destruction of Darnell in February.
Jeamie TKV backed Darnell up and attacked the body early with some well-placed hooks. The first right hand of TKV approximately 30 seconds prior hurt Darnell initially. TKV then increased the pace and found the final right hand that would cause the knockout. Darnell attempted to get up but could not beat the count. Tshikeva is now 2-0, Darnell 1-6.
Jimmy Lee vs Ricky Starkey
18-year-old super-featherweight southpaw Jimmy Lee started R1 very aggressively putting journeyman Starkey on the backfoot and unloaded with clean, crisp combinations. After following round two with more of the same, there was a slight change to the approach in round three as he became more patient and found the perfect shot, a right hook, which was the beginning of the end.
Lee trapped him in a corner and let rip a barrage of shots that was too much for Starkey to stay up from. The referee eventually stopped the fight after Starkey went down. Lee TKO-3 2:34
