MMAThread Fight of the night

Liam Gittins vs John HughesGittins put on a hell of a showing against a very game John Hughes. Gittins is still very young and has many years ahead of him – Gittins has stated his intentions of having one more amateur fight before turning professional.

Both Gittins and Hughes went to war exchanging heavy blows throughout the fight, it was Gittins who landed the cleaner crisper shots earning himself the victory.
