Last year in another encounter between the two boxers went back to England with the belt which Billy had won on a previous bout!

It was indeed a tough fight which saw the boxers going through 10 rounds of 3 minutes each with points given to whom gets the most accurate punches where Billy won every round.

The fight, sanctioned by the Malta Boxing Association, was organised by Chavez Boxing Promotions under the guidance of promoter Charles Muscat with the support of helping hand Lianne Corito.  John Cauchi from Australia was the referee in charge of  the fight.

AXL Affiliates were the main sponsors of this night of boxing which included a number of other exciting minor encounters.
