Tommy Gun gets third Pro victory
One of the BBColumn's ‘boxer to watch’ for the last two years Tommy Collins (23) returned to the ring to notch up his third victory in his third fight in his pro career in Sheffield (21,5,21). Collins whose progress has been scuppered by the lockdowns returned to the ring after over a year out on the undercard of Myron Mills English title defence at Sheffield arena which was streamed live on Fightzone.
Collins was not given an easy opponent for his first fight back taking on the talented Clayton Bricknell who was looking to get back to winning ways after 3 defeats in a row. Collins boxed well using his speed, great movement and shot picking to win all four of the three-minute rounds of this Super lightweight contest. Collins is now three with out defeat and will be looking to continue his unbeaten record.
Great win for Tommy against a very tough and talented opponent in Bricknell. He has had to wait over a year to get back into the ring because of the lockdowns but made a positive statement with this win which he can hopefully kick on and be in Midland title contention in 3 or 4 fights. He is one of the BBColumn’s boxers to watch and we look forward to see this talented young progress.
