BOXING: Tey Lynn-Jones won his 10th professional contest with a points win at Brentwood Centre against experienced Yorkshireman Harry Matthews.

Matthews had been in the ring with Chris Eubank Jr and current British middleweight champion Tommy Langford and gone the distance, but Grays fighter Lynn-Jones matched him.

And he said he was over the moon with the victory.

“I got the win against a durable opponent after putting him down twice,” he said on Facebook. “A bit more experience and composure and I could have got him out early but happy to get another six rounds under the belt before Christmas.”

After a fairly even and busy first two rounds 23-year-old Lynn-Jones settled into his range and delivered two heavy rights from behind stiff jabs.

This dropped under Matthews’ punch to land a good right uppercut followed by a left hook which knocked his muscular opponent to the canvas.

Although he regained his feet, a heavy overhand right knocked him down again with Matthews clinging on. Lynn-Jones pushed home the advantage and was awarded the victory 58 points to 54.

The local fighter thanked sponsors Mick Norcross and The Sugar Hut, as well as Oakfield Physiotherapy Clinic, CPI Euromix, Wu-sh & Tick Construction.
