Fred Evans brought the curtain down on a great night for Welsh boxing at the inaugural World Series of Boxing Event at the Celtic Manor.

Newport fighter Evans was welcomed to the ring by an expectant crowd and gave them exactly what they had come to see as he got the better of a split decision against French National Champion Michel Tavares.

Evans' win helped Great Britian Lionhearts to run out 4-1 victors over reigning competition champions Italia Thunder with the series now moving onto London's Earls Court on 14th of December.
