Richard returns to England and takes British boxing title

Remember Richard, the London geezer with the mad boxing skills? Well, after his short stint at Legacy a couple of months ago, he returned to England and fought for the lightweight IFA British boxing title. The event was held on the 1st of August, in London, and he faced off against the reigning champion Jimmy Lovelock.

By all accounts, it was a tough fight, but Richard's hard training and dedication paid off. He forced a standing 8 count in the fourth round, and dropped Lovelock in the fifth. He got the decision in the end, and deservedly had the belt wrapped around his waist.

Richard has been in contact and thanked everyone for their support during his stay here. He hopes to return to further hone his skills later this year.

Well done, mate! We are looking forward to watching the video of your fight.
