ROWLEY Regis-based boxer Jason Welborn was crowned the British Masters light-middleweight champion after beating Birmingham’s Max Maxwell on points following a bruising 10 round battle at Walsall Town Hall.
Welborn clinched the title by a 98-94 verdict after starting well and claiming the opening rounds before Maxwell hit back.
The former British welterweight challenger stuck to his guns and finished the stronger to capture the title.
Welborn claimed: “It was a good test and I got the win in. He was a good kid who pushed me, I knew he came to win, he wanted this fight and I knew he had trained for it.
“I want to go onto bigger things now.”
