Kirsty Hill overcame Vicky Wilkinson to secure the vacant Commonwealth super featherweight title during BCB’s sixth episode of Havoc at the Hangar.

The fight was decided by the judge’s scorecards, with Hill emerging as the unanimous decision winner after ten rounds in Wolverhampton.

Kevin Parker (93-97), Terry O’Connor (93-98), and Phil Edwards (92-98) all favored the Grimsby-born fighter.

Wilkinson began on a reserved note, yet as the fight progressed, she landed significant right punches, gaining some ground during the central rounds. However, Hill’s command in both the initial and concluding rounds, backed by her height and reach benefits, gave her an edge. Throughout the fight, Wilkinson displayed energy and determination but couldn’t disrupt Hill’s distance management.

In another fight, Zach Evans maintained his undefeated professional record, progressing to 3-0 by outscoring the seasoned Paul Cummings.

Evans secured every round as per referee Kevin Parker, wrapping up with a 60-54 victory after six rounds against the 83-fight seasoned Cummings.

Although the 26-year-old had previously knocked out Bulgarian Petar Aleksandrov, Cummings’ resilience prevented another KO. Evans, an emerging super welterweight talent, showcased his skill, landing series of punches with precision.

Having not faced defeat in his prior three pro fights, Pettigrew found Stoyanov’s challenge too overpowering. The 25-year-old now faces the challenge of recovering from his initial career setback.
