Hatton vs Senchenko results: Gary Buckland stops Stephen Foster Jr after eight

Hatton Promotions

Gary Buckland retained his British super featherweight title today in Manchester, stopping Stephen Foster Jr after eight rounds of an action-filled, competitive contest.

Gary Buckland was able to successfully defend his British super featherweight title today on the Hatton vs Senchenko undercard, beating Stephen Foster Jr in a competitive, entertaining fight, scoring a stoppage after eight rounds of action. At the time of stoppage, Bad Left Hook had Buckland ahead on our scorecard, 77-75.

Buckland (27-2, 9 KO) started fast and worked hard to the body throughout the fight, gradually adding in more of a head attack as the fight went on, mixing in a double jab and a right hand upstairs to the mix in the last couple of rounds. But Foster (30-4-1, 18 KO) was right there with Buckland for most of the fight, making it a back-and-forth affair for a while.

In the sixth round, the two clashed heads, opening a cut on Foster's forehead. It bled a fair bit, but didn't seem to hamper Foster's effort as much as the body work of Buckland ultimately made a big difference in the fight. In the eighth, Buckland beat up on Foster somewhat, having probably his biggest round, and appeared to hurt Foster somewhat. It was enough for Foster and his corner to end the fight after the round, as momentum had definitely gone in Buckland's favor, and a stoppage outcome was seeming likely.
