What a fight!
You've got to take your hat off to Curtis Woodhouse, what a legend, to come from football, a completely different sport, to come from a sport he was not only a professional in, but a professional at a very high level, to being a boxer, making the sacrifices to build his way up to British title level, and then achieving, winning that title, like he promised his dad, great story!, great victory!

Darren Hamilton did great in this fight, he is a bit of an over achiever himself, started late, boxed, trained his way up to being a British champion. Hamilton has to be commended for being gracious in defeat, especially considering it was a razor tight split decision, and he must have thought he had won, it was very close, but I think Hamilton just nicked it, only by a round, but that's the way I scored it, nothing really in it though.

Hamilton was outworking Woodhouse for much of the fight, his variety was good, the uppercut was a success for him, but Woodhouse won in the end, only just, by a whisker, but he won it, because he was able to avoid the jab often enough in the early rounds, there wasn't much at all on the Hamilton jab very often in the late rounds, and Woodhouse was able to hurt Hamilton, land with authority, he timed the jab very well, knew when to throw it, and when he landed, with mainly, the left hook to the body, and right to the head, he was the one producing the overall quailty in the round, landing with accuracy, the more power of the two, and he was never hurt by Hamilton, Woodhouse never had Hamilton seriously hurt, but his punches took a toll on Hamilton, much more than vise verse.

You could argue either guy won this fight by a round or two, on the basis that this is a point scoring business, a 3 minute per round challenge, Hamilton won this, one the basis that boxing is a blood sport, it is a fighting business, it is about landing hurtful punches, Woodhouse won this.
