Poulsen knocked Buckley down in the second, something several future world champions has failed to accomplish, but couldn’t finish the cagey journeyman off, and had to settle for a clear 60-53 verdict from scoring referee Mark Green, after controlling the action with a sharp jab and quick combinations.
Poulsen is now 6-1 (1), with the sole blemish being a highly controversial points defeat to French hard-man Tony Jourda in the Danes fourth bout.
Also on the show promoted by Mickey Helliet and the Mayfair Sporting Club, London-based South African Ruben Groenewald (20-5-3) returned to action after two years of inactivity with a decision over Mark Nilsen (6-2) at light heavyweight, welterweight Darren Hamilton (4-0) stayed undefeated with a points-win over Byron Vince (1-1), and middleweight Wayne Alwan (3-0) did likewise against Mark Phillips (9-49).
