The new Midlands Champion…
Its taken months of hard training, tough sparring & dedication from Troy himself and the Red Corner coaches but the Red Corner is most proud to announce Troy James is now the new Midlands Super featherweight Champion!
The fight took place on Friday 16th March at the Bedworth Civic Hall. The night was set to be a great night of boxing with local fighters from Coventry also on the bill. Troy’s usual supporters were out in force and the RedCorner Team were focused and ready to roll. Troy warmed up well, looking relaxed on the pads and taking his time to prepare mentally for what awaited him.
Both Troy & his opponent Barrington Brown weighed in fine before the fight. Troy had previously fought & beat Barrington whilst fighting in the PrizeFighter. Although he had previously beat Barrington, he put up a tough fight and Troy had his work cut out for him.
Barrington gave Troy a good fight up until the 10th round, when Troy stopped him 2 seconds before the bell!! He is now the new Midlands Super Featherweight Champion.
Although the Red Corner have had many champions under their belt, Troy is the first home-grown Champion we’ve had and so we’re especially proud of him & this great success.
The gym would like to thank all of the supporters who turned out that night & those who try to make it to most fights. Boxing is a tough game and your support is greatly appreciated.
Yours in sport,
