In one of his most powerful performances to date, King went on the front foot in the first round, unleashing an array of accurate punches from every angle.

King’s work-rate was so intense that Kerrigan was visibly stunned, however to his credit, he showed a lot of courage in managing to stay in the bout.

If his opponent was hoping for a let up in the second and third rounds, it was not to come as King maintained the same approach throughout all three rounds and in doing so delivered a unanimous 5-0 win on the judges scorecards.

King will now represent the Home Counties on Sunday, taking on the Midlands champion in the next round of the England Boxing NABGC Championships.
