Galea gets another win under his belt

WELLINGTON fighter Joel Galea continued his impressive form in the professional ranks after winning the main event at Pound For Pound Promotions fight night at Dubbo RSL Club on Saturday.

Galea got a points decision over Gunnedah's Daniel Durham in their 69kg junior middleweight contest and in the process took his professional record to two wins, two losses and a draw.

Promoter Robert Toomey said the bout, fought over six three-minute rounds, was hard-fought but worthy result for Galea.

"All three judges gave Joel the fight but that probably wasn't an indication of how hard it was," Toomey said.

"Joel did win it but he had to work hard for it and I think it was the best I have seen him fight.

"The Gunnedah boys are being looked after by Lovemore Ndou now so they're getting good tutelage, so for Joel to outlast Daniel in a tough fight like that was a good sign."

Daniel Bynan from Dubbo's Fitness Corner gym took out the Western NSW Cruiserweight title when he stopped Peter Cusack from Narromine in the third round.

"I've never seen Daniel go like that before, even in sparring," Toomey said.

"He dropped 'Beaver' in the first round and then the ref had to call it in the third.

"I felt a bit bad for making the match. I try to match them evenly to make it good for the fans but Daniel just showed something we've never seen from him before."

Other fighters from Fitness Corner to appear on the program were Chris Daley, James Neyland and Matt Plain.

Both Daley and Plain were beaten while Neyland got the better of Orange's Sam Jones in their 81kg division fight.

On a night enjoyed by both fans and sponsors of Pound For Pound, the biggest cheer was reserved for Thomas 'Spock' Toomey, who won his bout against James Lane from Orange.

"Thomas won on points which was good because the crowd really enjoyed watching the big boys go around," Toomey said.

"He had a bit of a weight advantage over the other guy but it was a good fight and it really got everyone going.

"We had a good crowd watching and our sponsors all left very happy so that is good."
