Watford boxer Liam Shinkwin, 35, lost out to Hamed Ghaz in an English Lightweight Title eliminator on Friday, June 25, live on Fightzone.
The fight took place at the Sheffield Fightzone Arena against undefeated Hamed Ghaz, who had the bulk of the support on the night. Shinkwin was defeated via Knockout/Technical Knock Out at 2:12 of Round Three.
Speaking before the match, Liam said: “I’ve got a good routine, I’m enjoying training at the moment. I don’t think you really know until you’re in the ring with them. I will always fight my best and rise to the occasion. I am looking forward to getting in there and seeing if I can still mix it with these youngsters.
Pro Boxing Trainer Tony Pill said: “As the dust has settled and we’ve had some time to reflect, I can’t begin to tell you how proud we are of our man Liam Shinkwin. We went into the backyard of a lad that is 10 years younger, has 16 fights and is unbeaten. We dared to be great!”
Turning pro in 2008, Liam Shinkwin became Southern Area Champion in 2013 before disappearing from the sport for six years and resurfacing again in 2019. He is a former star amateur who has previously won ABA and Junior Olympics honours.
