Luton fighter Jordan Reynolds was crowned the Senior Elite Home Counties 75kg champion after beating Hockwell ABC’s Linus Udofia in a tremendous bout at Canvey Island on Saturday.
Reynolds had been deducted a point for low blows during the fight, while Udofia was given a debatable eight count while recovering.
The pair had the venue on their feet, as Udofia, the underdog battled all the way, but Reynolds eventually took a unanimous points decision.
Reynolds said: “I want to thank everyone from Luton for attending.
“This was bragging rights for Luton as to who really is the best. I boxed how he wanted to and had a war and beat him at his own game.”
Meanwhile, Udofia tweeted: “Gave 110% but it was just out of reach. Shout out to a future champ.”
