PROMOTER Mark Neilson has no doubt he can produce another stellar show in Swindon when his Fight Town series is scheduled to return in the spring.

Hometown hero Ryan Martin stole the show at the Fight Town 3 event at the Oasis Leisure Centre late last month.

The 25-year-old delivered a stunning second-round stoppage of South African Mziwoxolo Ndwayana to triumph in his Commonwealth light-welterweight title eliminator.

Another fighter from trainer Paddy Fitzpatrick’s Swindon stable, Bec Connolly, had a Commonwealth title eliminator of her own, although that ended in defeat to Rachel Ball.

While Sam Smith fought for the Southern Area super-middleweight title but lost out to Germaine Brown.

Having produced a packed event filled with premium contests in his previous show, Neilson is sure he can repeat the feat at Fight Town 4 in March.

“These shows are getting bigger and better each time,” said Neilson.

“We’re putting bigger fights on each time. We had three 10-round bouts, two of which were eliminators and one was a title fight.

“There was a cracking undercard too with some real talent.

“With Paddy’s production line of fighters that come through his gym and the contacts that I’ve got, we’re already looking at a stellar line-up for Fight Town 4 in March.”

Connolly’s loss to Ball leaves her record in bouts in her home town standing at two wins and two defeats.

The contest was one of the most entertaining of the night, going the full 10-round distance before Midlands fighter Ball was awarded the decision on points.

Although sad to see Connolly lose, Neilson knows the 35-year-old always puts on a good show for her Swindon supporters.

“Bec is never in a dull fight,” said Neilson.

“She always comes to win, so she’ll be gutted, but she put on a really brave display against what turned out to be a really quality opponent.

“We knew what Rachel was about, and we knew she’d been in a fight of the year before.

“She had some really good skills, some really good fluid movement, but Bec kept coming forward.

“Bec will be gutted, but she has a big fan base behind her, and she put on a great show in front of a lot of people.”
