Debutants Anth Hardy and Mick Hadfield both kicked off their professional careers with wins at the Summer Rumble.

Hardy scored a points verdict over seasoned campaigner Matt Seawright at the Stadium of Light while 24-year-old Headland ABC fighter Hadfield was hugely impressive in his win over Nottingham-based Latvian Pavels Senkovs.

Martin Ward also bounced back to winning ways. In his first fight since defeat in the British bantamweight title clash with Lee Haskins, the 25-year-old defeated Adrian Fuzesi in a scrappy and cagey affair.
