Return of the King

Matty Tew: Local boxer making good

Lord of the ring Matty Tew maintained his unbeaten record after travelling to London in what was his fourth professional contest.

The Southampton based lightweight was well supported as his legion of fans travelled with him to the capital to cheer him on at the dinner show hosted by London’s Mayfair Sporting Club at the prestigious Millennium Hotel in Mayfair.

On what was a great night of boxing the fight stood out in particular as both boxers flew out of the corners and worked at a frantic pace. However it was Tew who had the more determination and better quality and went to work on his opponents body in the early rounds and eventually took the fight out of the other man and Tew ran out a deserved 40-36 points winner on the referee’s score card.

The event was clearly enjoyed by all and Tew once again delivered a crowd pleasing performance that not only kept his fans happy but won over the neutrals as he is now beginning to prove that he is a force to be reckoned with.

Now Tew will be looking to make it five wins without loss next month at the Oceana night club where he will be fighting alongside other Southampton favourites such as Mark Atkins, Darryl Still and Jon Fernandes.

Tickets for the Oceana’s Eleven on Sunday 21st November are available on 07841880538.
