BOXING: Fight Factory's King is crowned champ
12:00pm Friday 13th June 2014 in Sport
TAUNTON Fight Factory were in action again at Exeter's Rococo’s nightclub.
First up was Gavin Swateridge winning unanimously his second fight within a week.
He was followed by Levi Saunders who lost against a tough opponent but who remains one to watch Next up was young Lee ‘Hurricane’ Harris who battled over five rounds and was so close to winning an area title belt only to be stopped with seconds remaining.
Despite the defeat there are hopes for Harris to turn professional towards the end of this year. Last but not least was Barry ‘Relentless’ King who put up a great show of boxing over five rounds to win the ‘white collar’ British middleweight title against an opponent who had travelled over from Spain.
Boxers from the Fight Factory are in action again on July 5 in Chippenham and July 19 in Torquay.
