DUDLEY'S Danny Ball caused a shock as he inflicted a rare stoppage over Kevin McCauley at Walsall Town Hall last Saturday.

It was only McCauley's 13th stoppage in 205 fights as super welterweight Ball moved to 7-0 and has his sights on an area title challenge in 2019.

At the top of the bill, English Bantamweight Champion Kyle Williams closed in on a shot at the British title with a punch perfect victory over Nicaragua’s Elvis Guillen.

The Wolverhampton boxer headlined BCB Promotions’ five-fight card, sponsored by Grosvenor Casino Walsall, and hardly put a foot, or glove, wrong as he cruised to a 60-54 points win.

Meanwhile, Birmingham born heavyweight Kash Ali extended his unbeaten start to life as a professional boxer with a 14th straight win. Ali walked Bristol’s Phil Williams down over six before, just like Ball, stopping his man in the final round.

Tividale’s Ryan ‘Stewart’ Davies edged past the always tough Chris Adaway to move to 7-1. ‘Rhino’ grabbed a 40-38 decision.

Finally, Burntwood’s former kickboxing sensation, Troi Coleman, made it two wins in as many months with a closely fought 39-38 win over Lancashire’s Darryl Sharp.
