Review: 2014-05-10, pretty good fight between Martin Gethin and Derry Mathews: it gets three stars. Martin Gethin entered this fight with a record of 24-4-1 (11 knockouts) and he is ranked as the No.83 lightweight in the world, he fought twice in 2013 defeating Ben Murphy in January but then he lost to Ammeth Diaz via ko (IBF lightweight title final eliminator, Gethin vs Diaz).
His opponent, Derry Mathews, has a record of 34-9-2 (19 knockouts) and he entered as the No.81 in the same weight class, he also was defeated in his last bout when he faced Stephen Ormond for the Wbo European lightweight title. Gethin vs Mathews is valid for the BBBofC British lightweight title (Gethin’s first defense). Watch the video and rate this fight!
