Paul raised his gloves aloft. It was his best win to date; he hoped that the governing body would now give him a crack at a title.

Richard steel raised his hand and the crowd applauded. The photographers took their pictures that would appear in the Ring and Boxing illustrated magazines. He had now made it into the big time and better prize money would surely come his way. After being interviewed Anders Elkland who was watchin the fight said he would consider giving the young British lad a shot at the European title in April.

Norman Fawcett seized the opportunity to speak with Elkland’s Manager.

Michael warmed up in his dressing room He wore his blue and white Lonsdale trunks and the same dressing gown were the same as he wore when he won the European title. He chose to use black ten ounce gloves made by Everlast.
