Review: 2014-06-07, pretty good fight between Stuart Hall and Paul Butler: it gets three stars. Stuart Hall entered this fight with a professional boxing record of 16-2-2 (7 knockouts) and he is ranked as the No.15 bantamweight in the world, he suffered his last defeat in 2012 when he faced Lee Haskins for the vacant EBU (European) Bw title, since then he has collected four wins and one draw winning the Ibf belt in 2013 against Vusi Malinga (=Hall vs Malinga).
His opponent, the undefeated 25-year-old Paul Butler (9 years younger than Hall), has a perfect record of 15-0-0 (8 knockouts) and he entered as the No.49 in the same weight class, he has already fought in 2014 defeating Oreste Bernabe Nieva in a fight valid for the vacant WBA Inter-Continental Bw title (=Butler vs Nieva). Hall vs Butler is valid for the IBF bantamweight title (Hall’s second defense), first world title shot for Butler; they also faced each other a second time on September 30, 2017 (=Paul Butler vs Stuart Hall 2).
