BRIERLEY Hill boxer Connor Lee Jones was on the front foot for his latest bout with a win over experienced opposition.

Jones was in action at the BCB promoted show at Walsall Town Hall on March 9 and recorded a unanimous 40-36 win against Ibrar Riyaz, who was in action for the 165th time.

Also on the bill was former British middleweight champion Tommy Langford who soaked up some early pressure from Frenchman Baptisie Castegnaro to record a 58-56 points win.

Midlands area middleweight champion, Tyler Denny, was also back to winning ways as he moved up through the gears to record a shut-out 60-54 win over Lithuanian Vaidas Ballaluskas.

Wolverhampton’s Conah Walker was scheduled for his first six round contest but this one didn’t make it past the halfway point as ‘the Wolf’ blasted out Arvydas Trizno inside three rounds.

The Ricky Hatton trained fighter inflicted only an eleventh stoppage defeat in 116 contests over the usually durable Trizno after a string right-hand caught the Lithuania, who Complained the shot landed to the top of his cranium.

Fellow Wolverhampton boxer, Kirstie Bavington, emulated Walker with a stoppage win.

'Bavvo' went one better than Walker, battering Bosnia and Herzegovina’s Katarina Vistica into submission inside two rounds.
