Lejarraga and Gago are crowned in Europe
Five minutes. That’s all Kerman Lejarraga needed to be crowned welterweight champion of Europe. As his gestures showed while he was being paraded around on his fans’ shoulders as the new number 1 in Europe, his revolver spat fire and downed Bradley Skeete, who even before the end of the second round had fallen to his knees three times and had to leave Bilbao with a damaged right cheek, aching ribs and a dent to his pride.
Gago makes suffering an art and wins by a unanimous decision
Justice for one of the more humble and dedicated boxers we have ever met, a man with no airs and graces. It was a very tough fight, as one would expect of lightweights, in which the dynamite was primed and ready for action.
