    It was a night of upsets at the Copper Box Arena in Hackney London as Ovill McKenzie defeated Tony Conquest to win the Commonwealth Cruiserweight belt.

    Conquest entered the fight favourite and was defending the belt for the first time against the much travelled but always dangerous McKenzie.

    In round one both fighters met in the middle with Conquest jabbing well and evading McKenzie’s big punches. Both fought at a good pace but Conquest showed some good defensive skills and the crisper punches.

    Welcome to WNW’s live coverage of SmackDown!

    Rest in peace, Ultimate Warrior.

    John Cena’s music hits and he runs to the ring to kick things off this week. He grabs a mic. He says it sounds like you’re tired. It’s been a busy week starting with WrestleMania 30. It started with Hogan, Stone Cold, and The Rock having an iconic moment. Kofi was a wildcat, and Cesaro won the battle royal. Bray Wyatt… You can’t see me. And sadly, The Undertaker was defeated.

    The Game got played, and we have a new WWE World Heavyweight Champ! That was just WrestleMania. We believed in The Shield, got some bad news, found out Lesnar is the one, and Cesaro is a Paul Heyman guy. And his theme song got rewritten. Cena was taught to bo-lieve in himself. He mentions Adam Rose and Alexander Rusev. And Paige…. she turned the page in the divas division. I am the measuring stick. I am John Cena. Any If anyone wants their feet planted on the top of the mountain, they are going to have to go through me.

    The Wyatt Family appear on the tron. Harper talks first, and Bray follows. When he looks inside himself, he sees the good, the bad, and the miracles. He is free. It must have been frightening, you were right there. Wyatt says he has to go to new extremes to see the monster. He’s got the whole world in his… hands.

    Cole and JBL talk about Lesnar ending The Streak while news articles are shown.

    Big Show makes his way to the ring. Paul Heyman steps out on the stage. He stands before us as the advocate for the winner of the Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal. Cesaro enters with no music. Heyman joins commentary.

    Big Show vs. Cesaro

    Lock up, Cesaro pushes Show off. Big Show shoves Cesaro. Cesaro is taken back down, he rolls out of the ring. Show picks him up by the head and slaps him on the apron. Cesaro tries to suplex Big Show back in the ring from the apron. Big Show sends Cesaro over him onto the outside. Back in the ring, Show covers Cesaro. Cesaro rolls out, avoiding the KO punch. Heyman tells Cesaro to take his air.


    After the break, Big Show slaps Cesaro in the corner. Cesaro kicks Show and hops on his back as they stand in the middle of the ring. Sleeperhold continues to be locked in. Show throws him off into the corner. Cesaro hops back on him Show throws him off, followed by clotheslines and a big shoulderblock. He attempts the Choke Slam, but Cesaro jumps back on to put in the Sleeperhold. Show slams him while still on his back. Show goes up top, Cesaro dodges the elbow drop. He grabs his legs for the Swing when Swagger runs in and locks in the Patriot Lock.

    Winner: Cesaro – by DQ (10:05)

    42-year-old former WBO heavyweight champion Shannon Briggs (52-6-1, 46 KO’s) made a successful comeback last Friday night with an impressive 1st round knockout win over 36-year-old journeyman Maurenzo Smith (12-9-3, 9 KO’s) at the Double Tree Westshore Hotel, in Tampa, Florida, USA. Briggs landed three hard right hand body shots that sent Smith down on the canvas. He wasn’t able to get up, and the fight was halted at that point. For Smith, it was his 7th defeat in his last 9 fights since 2012.

    Briggs hadn’t fought since his 12 round unanimous decision loss to former WBC heavyweight champion Vitali Klitschko in October of 2010. Briggs took a bad beating in that fight, and suffered a number of injuries.

    Former lightweight contender Mercito Gesta (27-1, 15 KO’s) stopped 27-year-old journeyman Edgar Riovalle (37-18-2, 26 KO’s) in the 8th round last Friday night in a successful comeback for the 26-year-old Gesta at the Del Mar Fairgrounds, in San Diego, California, USA. The fight was halted at 2:13 of the 8th.

    Gesta is hoping that the win over Riovalle will lead to him getting back into title contention at some point in the future. But for that to happen, Gesta is going to learn to be a lot more aggressive and to throw more punches, because he’s looked very limited in the only two times he stepped it up in his career against Manuel Perez and Miguel Vazquez. Gesta got a controversial 10 round decision over Perez in 2011 in a fight that I saw Gesta losing by 4 rounds. Gesta was promoted by Top Rank at the time he fought Perez.

    Gesta hadn’t fought since being totally dominated by IBF lightweight champion Miguel Vazquez in a one-sided 12 round unanimous decision loss in December of 2012.

    Unbeaten #9 IBF super middleweight contender Gilberto Ramirez (28-0, 22 KO’s) kept his unbeaten record with a 5th round stoppage of 33-year-old two-time former world title challenger Giovanni Lorenzo (33-7, 25 KO’s) on Friday night to win the vacant NABF super middleweight title at the Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino, in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA.

    The 22-year-old Ramirez knocked Lorenzo down three times in the fight with vicious body shots, putting him down in the 3rd once and twice in the 5th before the towel was waived by Lorenzo’s corner after the 2nd knockdown in the 5th. The official stoppage by referee Jay Nady was 2:47 of the 5th.

    Former middleweight title challenger Andy Lee (32-2-2, 22 KO’s) had to struggle to defeat journeyman Frank Haroche Horta (34-13-5, 13 KO’s) by an 8 round majority decision. The final judges’ scores were 77-76, 76-76, and 77-76. I personally had the fight scored as a draw at 76-76. The southpaw Lee was getting nailed constantly by Horta, and the fight was a highly competitive one due to Lee’s lack of defense to the power shots from Horta. This should have been a mismatch for Lee, but it turned out to be another disappointing performance from him.

    Former British/Commonwealth heavyweight champion David Price (17-2, 15 KO’s) shockingly had to climb up off the deck in the 1st round to come back and halt Euro level heavyweight Ondrej Pala (33-5, 23 KO’s) on Saturday night at the Blue Water Dokken, Esbjerg, Denmark. The tall 6’8″ Price was bowled over by a thudding left hook to the side of the head.

    Price got back to his feet but he didn’t look steady on his feet. It was only due to Pala not having the talent to take him out that the 30-year-old Price.

    After a so-so looking 2nd round in which Price still didn’t look good, he came on strong in the 2nd and landed a couple of nice right hands to send Pala down on the canvas. After the second knockdown, referee Freddy Rafn halted the fight at 0:33 of the round.
