Stoke’s Erick Ochieng retains English title after points victory over Andrew Lowe

Posted: May 27, 2012 in Uncategorized

Promising Erick Ochieng retained his English light-middleweight title with a convincing points victory over Andrew Lowe at the Capital FM Arena in Nottingham on Saturday night.

However, controversy surrounded the result as many at ringside believed the fight to have been much closer than the judges gave Lowe credit for.

Judge Terry O’Connor awarded the Stoke-based champion all 10 rounds, while Steve Gray and Howard John Foster scored the contest 99-91 and 98-92 respectively.

Ochieng has now won 10 of his professional fights, with one defeat.

Lowe, who tore apart Terry Maughan inside four rounds in his last fight, has now won 10, lost seven and drawn one.

Lowe’s manager Carl Greaves told Lincboxing: “He got beaten fair and square but the scorecards were not correct in my opinion.

“I thought Andrew won the last three rounds.”
