Boxer Bilal Rehman (7-0) produced a clinical performance after he outpointed Fonz Alexander to a six round decision win, last night at the Victoria Warehouse in Manchester.
The 24-year-old fought his second six-round bout under Steve Woods VIP Promotions banner with now 7 wins and 0 defeats in his record.
His previous bout was back in November 2016 when he outpointed Dan Carr in four rounds.
In a recent interview prior to the bout, Rehman stated a ‘no game plan’ for his bout and went in to fight whatever way he could.
It turned out to be a lot easier than what he expected.
In the opening of round one, the ‘The Kid’ was able to take his time in terms of finding his rhythm and using his jab to win the early rounds.
In the third round, Rehman was able to land more excruciating shots to the body that created massive impact for him and sent his opponent away from him.
Alexander (4-50) who is considered to be a journeyman certainly had solutions whatsoever to Rehman’s boxing ability.
By the later rounds and particularly the last round, the super-lightweight prospect outshined his opponent in all aspects of the ring.
Crisp, clean and effective combinations followed by flawless foot movement and stalking his prey easily got him the last remaining points of the rounds.
Referee John Latham who was the solo judge scored it 60-54 in favour of the Englishman.
Rehman certainly did not discredit the courage of his opponent who took heavy shots throughout the bout.
“I give credit to him. He took some good shots throughout the fight,” Rehman told VIP Boxing Promotions.
“I’ve seen his fights and he had a good left hook so I studied him for a couple of fights and I’m glad I got the job done.”
Despite not getting the knockout, Rehman was mainly satisfied with his overall performance and wants anyone that is willing to fight him next.
“It’s not about knocking guys out when you’re at championship level you’re going to need 12 rounds of experience,” he said.
“I want the best names out there and I’ll fight anyone at any time.”
