Lewis took command and did not lose a round and dropped the challenger twice and controlled the centre of the ring throughout and won by a unanimous decision.

Head trainer Stuart Davies said: “This was another great win for Lewis, he has come such a long way since walking in my gym over 10 years ago and I am very proud that he has pursued his passion and remained loyal and committed to his club and training.”

Stuart has been offered an ISKA world title fight in Ireland for Lewis at the end of February at the weight above. This is great opportunity to make an impact and would open the door to professional fights in the near future. Lewis will also be fighting for a ICO European title in March.
