Sandor Martin dominated Kay Prospere in the main fight of the event held this Friday in Barcelona and co-promoted by Matchroom Boxing. The super lightweight World Boxing Association (WBA) seventh-ranked Spaniard retained his European title with a unanimous decision over Briton Kay Prospere and was the star of a great night for Spanish boxing.

Martin won by scores of 119-107, 117-109, and 117-110 in an exhibition of superiority that helps him take another step in his career towards his goal of a world title shot.

Kerman Lejarraga also won by TKO in the seventh round over Briton Jez Smith. The former WBA International Champion fought in the super welterweight division and looked strong, punishing his opponent until he was unable to continue.

The event was a great demonstration of Spanish talent, with competitive fights and a great organization that left a good taste in Barcelona.
