Bascome claims unanimous points win

Nikki Bascome claimed a unanimous points victory over a plucky Ryan Oliver at the Fairmont Southampton last night.

The Bermudian boxer took the contest, the main event at Fight Night Champion, 78-74, 78-74, 78-74 on all three of the judges' scorecards.

Bascome made a trademark slow start to the eight-round contest, with his English counterpart landing several eye-catching body blows, but took control of the fight by the third round.

Oliver was unable to capitalise on his height and weight advantage and was outjabbed and outmanouvered by a disciplined and measured Bascome, who improves his record to nine wins from ten bouts.

Meanwhile, Andre Lambe made a superb start to life in the paid ranks with a first-round stoppage over fellow debutant Mat Hinchey of Canada.

Measured performance: Nikki Bascome
