GEORGE O’Leary from South Ockendon won the vacant EBA light heavyweight British title on Saturday 29th July at the Civic Hall, Grays.
His opponent was the towering Lawrence ‘Get Down’ Brown from Epsom
O’Leary found Brown’s height a little tricky at first but managed to take control of the fight and get two standing counts on Brown and over six rounds got a unanimous decision.
O’Leary’s four new sponsors Grayers Graphics, JM Sealant Contracts Ltd, Sana Electrical Ltd and Warton Freight Services were all there to support O’Leary.
George would like to thank his team, fans and sponsors for all their help and support and said it was nice to add the British title to his English and five nation title belts.
