    That's two back-to-back UD losses for Formella it seems, Formella would not go down despite hard shots punch resistance is too high. Alen Babic wins by TKO in 3 rounds.

    I saw the main event live and watched the two heavyweight bouts on Youtube. Formella is what he is and isn't world class, he was scouted to give a decent work out for Benn but he can't punch hard so at best he could have outhustled Benn but not have turned out his lights.

    Babic looked decent but no offense to Tom Little he was a heavy bag with arms and legs. I would like to Babic set up his power punches with a jab and bob and weave more as he will be spotting tremendous size to guys when he steps up against better fighters.

    PS, I know why promoters don't do it but Babic should have fought Wardley and they should definitely fight each other down the road, neither guy were going to learn much against the opposition they fought and the card would have been deeper with a quality prospect clash like that.
