■ TKO gym’s Iraqi heavyweight Ali Adams recorded his second win since losing to Matt Skelton in the Prizefighter tournament, easily outpointing Lithuanian Igoris Boruzha over four rounds.

■ TKO’s 19-year-old light-middleweight Brett O’Callaghan was too lively for ex-serviceman Matt Scriven in another four rounder on the undercard.
