Lovell defeats Balogh on points at York Hall

Bedford boxer Max Lovell earned the second victory of his pro career by beating Gabor Balogh on points at York Hall on Saturday.

The 21-year-old was fighting on the Goodwin Promotions ‘March Mayhem’ bill and was crowned victory by 40-36 on the judges scorecard.

Speaking about the bout, Lovell said: “I was really happy with how the fight went. The strategy going into the fight went exactly the plan and I felt like I dominated from the first to the last bell, winning every round for a points victory.

“I was accurate with my shots and landed with good power and didn’t waste many shots at all.”
Lovell was delighted to see so many followers make the trip to London, continuing: “The support was amazing with over 80 people making the trip from Bedford to come and support me.

“It gave me a massive buzz having everyone there making their support known.”
Promoter Steve Goodwin added: “Max Lovell looked sensational in the final fight.

“Managed by Lui La Mura, Max is definitely going places in the sport. Gabor Balogh put up a tough fight but Max was different class.”
Lovell now hopes to fight again on May 14.
