It was the second professional fight of Peter "Lightning" Lewison. His opponent was Brant Skyler, a much more experienced fighter fromthe USA. However despite Skyler's advantage in experience, Lewison knocked him out in the second round with a powerful uppercut. This was the second win for Lewison, who is following in the footsteps of his idol Charles "Killa" Whittaker, both fighting and promoting his own shows. 

The show also featured undercard fights from amateurs Tafari Ebanks, Javaka Kellier and Dariel Ebanks as well as white collar boxer Luke Willingdon. 

The crowd was also treated to entertainment from Mean Source dancers, Black Ken, a boxing moves exhibition by Tracey Seymour with coach Norman Wilson and self defence demonstration by Bob Daigle.

Lewison said that he was "extremely proud of how the show turned out and thankful for all of the support from the community in attending and sponsoring the event". He hopes to organise a similar event for March next year.
