Tuesday 1st April 2014
MAIDSTONE light-middleweight Ollie Lawrence has taken a large step towards national title glory in the UK’s Queensbury Boxing League.
The undefeated 21-year-old, from Allington, produced a mesmerising display of ring skills during a close-fought four-round points victory over Northampton’s Darryl Davidson.
Speaking after the fight, Ollie, who started out as a junior for Maidstone Amateur Boxing Club, described the contest as his toughest yet. He said: “I take my hat off to Darryl Davidson, he has my utmost respect.”
The event took place at Copthorne Hotel, Effingham, West Sussex. He will challenge for the national title at the Epsom Downs Racecourse in Surrey in April.
