Adam Dingsdale seized the Southern Area lightweight title from Portsmouth’s Floyd Moore on Friday night.

In a dramatic bout that may prove to be the small-hall fight of the year, Hoo’s Dingsdale won on points.

The bout swayed one way and then the other but Dingsdale’s classy boxing, combined with the courage to mix it when required, meant the win was deserved.

Moore’s reputation as a hugely exciting puncher will, however, have only have been boosted by a tremendous contest, which thrilled the capacity crowd at the Mountbatten Centre in Portsmouth.

The referee was left to choose between the slick boxing skills of the challenger and the non-stop pressure of the champion.

At the end of the 10 rounds, it was Dingsdale that received the nod, provoking a great deal of raucous disbelief from Floyd’s home crowd, who were no doubt influenced by the partisan nature of the contest as cheers and screams accompanied every shot that the champion threw.

Dingsdale showed he had a great chin and plenty of heart as he mixed it with the champion and made Floyd pay with every shot he missed.
