Jake Bostwick came into the main event on a heavy win streak and was attempting to make it nine in a row. In his way was Frenchman Patrick Valle. Vallee came to London with no fans, but the highly ranked European played his role and made a definite case of winning the fight having dropped Bostwick on a few occasions. The judges gave it to Bostwick after he walked Vallee down for the most part of the fight, landing solid leg kicks.
