Buchanan and McClumpha Turn In a 6 Round War

North East boxing fans were treated to a great fight on Sunday with a Tyne and Wear clash between Andrew Buchannan and Johnson McClumpha, at the Pro Box North East promoted Summer Rumble at the Stadium of Light.

The 6 rounder was an absolute war, the younger McClumpha pressured Buchanan constantly leaving “El Cannon” fighting off his back foot for most of the fight, however Buchanan was able to land more telling shots throughout most of the exchanges.

McClumpha looked like he could have taken Buchanan out, wobbling the Geordie in the last round as the two fighters went toe to toe slugging it out in an all action sixth round. Buchanan used his experience and knowledge to weather the storm and make it through to the final bell.

The judges all turned in 58-58 score cards which was a fair result as both Boxers had put on a great performance, giving the fans a great fight. Neither deserved to lose a thrilling fight.

The www.fightstoremma.com fighter Buchanan took to Facebook after the fight saying:

Well wowweee!! That was a proper battle! Me and Jonson mclumpha just went to WAR!!! Total battle loved every minute broke my rib and hand in the first round but hey ho thanks for all the support much appreciated Micky Duncan mr motivator! Cheers mate hope I did you proud! To my lovely wife Jen Buchanan I’m sorry I put you through that but I had fun xxx to every one who came along thank you!

The two Super Middleweights delivered a fight worth the admission alone, and with excellent counter punching and pressure fighting on show in front of a crowd filled with fans for both the hometown favourite and the Geordie boxer, a rematch would be more than welcomed.

Newcastle was without an MMA store until 2011 when FIGHT STORE Newcastle opened. Since Then we have been a part of the community with the staff and owners all having been involved for many years in the sports we work for.
