Pauly Upton follows in Sonnys footsteps and beats McAuley

Paul Upton, followed in his brother Sonny’s footsteps by Ā beating the seriously tough Kevin McCauly on the FAST & FURIOUS show at the Cresset in Peterborough last Saturday night.

Without doubt McCauly wanted some sort of revenge on the Upton Clan, for the loss Sonny inflicted on him three weeks previous and right from the start he took the fight to the Romford based youngster.

The constant pressure was working to a degree, at times Upton appeared to be getting overwhelmed, but just as you thought McCauly was getting the upper hand, Upton would pull out a superb lightning fast combination or two to turn things around.

In his previous fights young Upton was able to control his opponents with ease, but on Saturday he had his hands full, McCauly just wouldnā€™t back down, he just kept the pressure up from the opening minute to the final bell, however young Upton showed his mettle, as well as the undoubted skills that had secured him an array of national and international accolades as an amateur, to pull out a close 39-38 points victory.
