Boxer Tyler Christopher delivered a disciplined and measured display to defeat Cameroonian Serge Ambomo on points in the main event at the Holiday Inn Birmingham Airport yesterday [May 18].

The southpaw deployed a piston-like jab and straight left-hand punches to control the four-round super-welterweight contest, improving his unblemished record to nine wins, with the referee scoring the bout 40-37.

Although Christopher dominated the fight, the stout and muscular Ambomo showed an appetite for the battle, continually barrelling forward and throwing looping, wild punches, which kept the evasive Christopher on the move.

However, the 37-year-old Ambomo [13-61-3] rarely threatened Christopher, with the Bermudian keeping his opponent at bay and refusing to get embroiled in a brawl.

“I landed plenty of straight punches and executed my game plan,” Christopher told Bernews. “He was tough and shorter than me, so I kept it long and fought on the outside.

“I didn’t try and mix it up; he had a bit of a punch on him and caught me a few times. I always felt safe, though.”

Christopher, 27, praised Ambomo’s durability and said he was among the most physical opponents he has encountered during his burgeoning pro career.

“I hit him with some solid shots, and he kept coming forward and didn’t back off,” he said.

Jon Pegg, who manages Christopher, believes his charge is ready to step up and challenge for a Midlands Area title or fight in an English title eliminator.

“He’s had some tough tests at this level and passed them with flying colours,” Pegg said. “He did what he had to do tonight.

“If you stand with a bull of a man and try to knock his head off, you either hurt your hand or nose.

“[Tyler] didn’t take any punishment, picked up the points, and boxed well.

“He could have done that for six, eight, or ten rounds. He did everything right and listened to his coach [Anthony Hull], and that’s what happens when you listen to your coach.”
