Coventry has now made the official first ever professional Bare Knuckle Boxing champion of Britain in the Light Middleweight devision Leighton Brady has now gone down in the history of Coventry as the first BKB champion.
Leighton stepped up as a stand in for Melvin Guillard to face Andrew Davies at the Coventry Sports connection arena May 11th 2018 to fight for the British BKB Title (was originally for the World title) but as Melvin couldn’t make it over from the States the British title was then up for grabs with Rogue Elite BKB.
Brady stopped Davies in the first round with a flurry of vicious body shot’s dropping Davies 3 times before the referee stopped the contest as Davies was in no position to continue. Shane Jnr was also a Coventry winner on the evening stopping Brad Raden in the first round too. Chris Masterson, another fighter from Toe2Toe Boxing Gym also won with a first round stoppage against a very tough durable opponent Mally Richardson with a lovely over the top punch which then ended the fight. Chris suffered a broken hand from this shot which he later received medical assistance.
