Jordan Ellison has done it again
The Hartlepool boxer has taken a FOURTH unbeaten scalp in the boxing ring after beating hard-hitting American Jacob Wooley at Hull tonight.
Ellison outpointed the 25-year-old at the Ice Arena on the undercard of Gavin McDonnell's unsuccessful bid to win the WBC world super-bantamweight championship.
It was another incredible performance from the Gus Robinson Developments star and a winning return following a stoppage defeat last time out against Lewis Ritson for the Northern Area super-featherweight title.
Ellison has made a habit of defeating either unbeaten fighters from the away corner.
If you throw in home prospects with winning records into the equation, this was the 21-year-old's fifth upset victory in 12 appearances on the road since joining the Gus Robinson camp.
Wooley, making his UK debut, was the overwhelming favourite after six KOs in his eight-fight victorious run.
However, despite a bright start, the Memphis-born slugger was soon put in the shade by Ellison who took control from round two and refused to release his grip.
The longer it went on, the more frustrated Wooley became, Ellison staying on the back foot and ruled the bout on the back foot with accurate shots from both fists.
Referee John Latham scored it 58-57.
Gus Robinson Developments head coach Peter Cope said: "To be honest, I thought the score maybe could have been wider.
"But I'm not going to quibble, Jordan deserved it and he got it.
"I always fancied because I knew Jordan was in good form.
"He's beaten a Scottish kid was five and five and had outboxed George Jupp in London but got ripped off with the result.
"Jordan lost to Ritson but Lewis is something different, he wastoo big, a freak at the weight to be honest.
"I'd had Jordan sparring all over the place and he's looked good, this win has not surprised me.
"There was the id
ssue of Jacob's power and after the fist round I said to Jordan 'can he hit?'.
"Jordan said 'yeah, he can hit' but Jordan stayed on the back foot and was magnificent.
"After the bout, [promoter] Eddie Hearn said he thought Wooley had won the first two rounds and gave the rest to Jordan.
"I disagreed and thought the first was close and Jordan won the second! But what a win, I'm over the moon with him."
McDonnell's dream of joining twin brother Jamie as a world champion was shattered as Mexico's Rey Vargas outpointed the Doncaster man to land the vacant WBC crown.
Earlier in the night, Hull ace Campbell delighted his hometown support by stopping Jairo Lopez in the second round of their lightweight match.
