At the O2 Arena, London, last night, Frank Buglioni made a successful defence of his British light-heavyweight title.

The Enfield-fighter was matched against the previously unbeaten Ricky Summers in a fight that was to go the distance but was to prove hugely entertaining.

At the end of twelve rounds, Buglioni was awarded the decision by a unanimous points decision, with the judge?s scorecards reading:

? 116 ? 113 (in favour of Buglioni)
? 115 ? 114 (in favour of Buglioni)
? 118 ? 111 (in favour of Buglioni)

As can be seen there was a wide variation in the range of scoring, but it was a close fight that could have been hard to score from the different sides of the ring.

Throughout the fight both boxers landed huge punches but neither was to hit the canvas even though, late-on, tiredness looked as if it could play a part.

The win for Buglioni sees his record stretched to 20 wins, 1 draw and 2 defeats from his 23 fights and following this win Buglioni will be looking towards moving onwards and upwards.
