Cruiserweight Keane has early night on Friday's Digbeth card

Keane, who headlined It’s-A-Bout Boxing’s ‘New Blood’ Show, was a class above his opponent. The 27 year-old twice had Toth down in the opening round with a series of vicious combinations. Toth took a big shot early in the second round and, although he recovered in time to beat the count, referee Shaun Messer had seen enough.   The Midlands Area cruiserweight champ returns to ring action later this month where he will face another International TBA opponent on Martin Gethin’s IBF Final Eliminator undercard ‘Ready To Silence The World’.   “I was happy with how I did in there,” said Keane.

“Fair play to Tamas, he’s a strong guy. He took some massive shots. They rocked him but he kept coming back. He was game.   “That was my tenth fight and I’m still undefeated, so I’ve got to be happy with that. I’ll just keep doing what I’m doing.   “I’m back out on May 31 and, hopefully, I can put in another good performance.”   On the undercard, Smethwick based Zimbabwean debutant Disney Huni narrowly outpointed Bulgarian Danny 'The Leveller' Dontchev (4-53) over four rounds, the referee scoring 39-38.

Birmingham's Chris Truman (9-4-1) recorded a 40-36 points wins over Bheki 'Beck Tiger' Moyo (0-52-2). Tamworth's Matt Seawright (4-74-5) recorded his first win for over four years against Czech southpaw Vaclav Skromach (1-10) by the same 40-36 margin.
