Anthony Fowler TKO-1 Theophilus Tetteh
This wound up a farcical fight for Fowler (12-1, 9 KO) in his first outing with trainer Shane McGuigan, as Tetteh (19-8-2, 12 KO) came in on short notice and with a pair of boots that just were not performance-ready. Tetteh slipped all over the ring, going down basically every time he got touched. After four knockdowns, the referee waved it off at the end of the first, and rightly so.
“It’s not my fault. I came in prepared,” Fowler said. “It’s a shame, but it was only going to go one way.”
Trainer McGuigan said he wants Fowler to rematch Scott Fitzgerald, who beat him last year. “I want the Fitzgerald fight next, and then we move on to bigger and better things,” he said.
Eddie Hearn said the Fitzgerald-Fowler rematch will happen in July.
Jack Cullen TKO-2 Tomas Reynoso
Cullen (18-2, 9 KO) is a 6’3” domestic middleweight who is great fun to watch usually, including a tremendous fight in his last outing, a loss to British champion Felix Cash. Cullen, 26, would eventually like a rematch with Cash, but that’s for down the road.
He didn’t have much trouble here, though Reynoso (13-6-1, 3 KO) did tag him with a few shots at the end of the first round. Cullen landed a right hand late in the second, though, and put Reynoso down. The Argentine scrapper got up, but he was stopped by the referee, and despite the fighter’s protests, it was the right call. He was completely unsteady on his feet.
Cullen could be back May 2 against veteran Jason Quigley, according to promoter Eddie Hearn. “That’s a great fight. We’re going to try and get that done for May 2nd on the Dillian Whyte card,” Hearn said.
