The Firefly Makes It Five !
Young Finn Harris made the trip to London to box a lad from the Northolt boxing Club who he had already faced 3 times before , albeit in skills bouts. If these previous skills bouts had of been competitive then our man would not be currently sitting on a unbeaten record !! , so he knew he faced a very good boxer and that he would have to be top of his game to win the contest. The ‘Firefly’ started well winning the majority of the exchanges but the home boxer was always a threat showing his quality, however Finn had just done enough to win the round. In a less impressive display in round 2 our young man got caught more times than he should off with his opponent showing the quality we knew he had , but Finn wasnt going to lose his unbeaten record without a challenge and fought back well. Needing a good last round the Shadwell Stud sponsored young star used his head and feet well moving round the ring lovely , evading many of his opponents punches and landing some good shots of his own. These two boxers showed great boxing skills for their young ages in a good bout and the unbeaten record moved onto five when Finns hand was raised when announced the winner of a split decision.
