Nathan Reeve vs Craig Derbyshire

Nathan ‘Thunder’ Reeve (12-2) gets another crack at the English championship five years and five months after his first attempt against Louis Norman in December 2013.

That defeat was followed by a disastrous three years of injuries but now he has strung together four successive wins going into his second crack at the crown against Craig Derbyshire (6-27-3), who he beat on points in his 2017 comeback fight, live on the Black Country Boxing Promotion’s Facebook Page

 

Undercard highlights: Leo D’Erlanger (9-2-3) vs Josh Baillie (5-5) for the Midlands Area super-featherweight title

 

UPDATE: An excited Carl Greaves said: "What a night in Northampton, Craig Derbyshire becomes the new English super-flyweight champion with a convincing points victory over Nathan Reeve."

The 24-year-old Mancunian is planning on another four fights this year before attempting to return to the world title mix again.
