Alfie Price is the new Southern Area lightweight champion

Unbeaten Alfie Price (7-0) defeated Southern Area lightweight champion Jeffrey Ofori (9-1) 100-92 on points at the York Hall on September 27.

Tottenham's Ofori was the defending champion having dethroned Jumanne Camero in October 2018, but was dethroned himself in his first defence.

Price was a standout amateur winning seven national titles and a European bronze medal. This is his first title as a professional fighter, claimed within two years and four months of his professional debut in May 2017.

The former Team GB boxer expected an easy night's work with Ofori after sparring with Josh Tayler and Luke Campbell at McGuigan's Gym in preparation.
