  • Kieran Farrell's first show of 2019 takes place at the University of Bolton stadium

  • Joe Gallagher-managed fighter on the card


This weekend saw Kieran Farrell host his first boxing show of the year with his second successilve show at the University of Bolton stadium following last September's stellar card.

This year's event seemed destined to be Kieran's most captivating show yet with his brother Nathan's professional debut being the most interesting aspect of the build-up.

Unfortunately, Nathan was forced to withdraw from the show due to his long-standing issues with a knee injury meaning that he could not receive medical clearance for the date. This was coupled with the fact that Danny Craven’s scheduled headlining title fight had also been pulled from the bill. This meant that those remaining on the bill had that extra desire to perform that much better for the live crowd - which is exactly the way Kieran likes it.

The opening fight of the night saw Ben Ridings face the far more experienced Zygimantas Butkevicius in a four-round contest. This was only Riding’s second professional fight, but he dealt with the sense of occasion with a calm and measured performance against a tricky opponent to pick up another decision win and gained much needed in ring experience in the process.

Next up was the Joe Gallagher-managed Adam Little who returned after 17 months out of action and showed no signs of ring rust against the tough, Nathan Hardy. Little displayed his deceptive power countless times throughout the fight with multiple moments seeing Nathan wobbled and retreating. Despite Hardy’s heart, his chin eventually gave way, with a vicious overhand right being the final blow before the referee had seen enough.

Lee Clayton bounced back from defeat to pick up his first win since last February as he outclassed Russ Midgely over four rounds much to delight of his promoter, Kieran. Debutant, Sam Larkin equally impressed with a one-sided decision win of his own, setting himself up for an exciting year in the sport.


Ben Thomas will have to wait for his second professional win after battling to a draw in a gruelling bout with the difficult and determined, Harry Matthews. Despite the Kieran Farrell coached fighter not securing the win he would have wanted; his all action style was on display yet again in front of an electric hometown crowd. Khaleel Majid also had the Bolton crowd on their feet as he picked up his third win on points since turning professional last year.

Finally, the main event fittingly ended with the fight of the night as Reece MacMillan defeated the game, Lee Connelly in an absolute war of attrition over eight hard fought rounds. It was the first time 23-year-old MacMillan had venture into eight round territory and he more than showed he had the tenacity to keep up with the ferocious pace of a fighter like Connelly.

Despite some unfortunate late changes to the card, the ever reliable Kieran Farrell delivered another brilliant boxing showcase and highlighted yet again why he is setting the standard for small hall shows in the North West. 

We at Morson are looking forward to what the rest of the year holds for Kieran Farrell Promotions.
