Sexton just a cut above

Accidental clash of heads in fourth round causes nasty gash

Sam Sexton recorded a win over Larry Olubamiwo at the York Hall on Friday night, though victory came at a cost for the Norwich heavyweight.

The all-British bout was evenly poised when it was stopped in the fifth round due to a nasty cut on the left side of Sexton's head.

The 27-year-old was declared the winner 49-48 by the solitary judge at ringside, meaning he improves his professional record to 15-2.

However the former Commonwealth champion had found it tough going against Olubamiwo, who had not fought since suffering a disastrous first-round loss to John McDermott last February.

The key moment of the contest came in the fourth when the two big men clashed heads, leaving Sexton with blood pouring down his face.

On three occasions the referee called a time out to let the doctor inspect the damage before eventually deciding that Sexton could not continue. -
