FORMER STANFORD-LE-HOPE boxer John Wayne Hibbert has come a long way since plying his trade in the gyms of Corringham and Stanford.
Last night (Tuesday) his career received a massive boost as he appeared on the Welterweight Prizefighter series live on Sky Sports 1.
John Wayne just lost out in a closely fought three round contest with Kevin McIntyre. Each judge scored it 29-28.
In the final, Yassine El Maachi beat former WBC World Champion Junior Witter to win the Prizefighter Welterweights II at York Hall, Bethnal Green.
