Boxing: Rafiq always in control to cop police show victory
NAZ Rafiq showed his class to run out a unanimous winner at the latest Queensberry Police ABC show.
The England light-welterweight from Dresden was always ahead over three, three-minute rounds against Welshman Eddie Gallagher (Shotton ABC).
Both boxers showed off powerful body work and neat upper cuts, but Rafiq never lost control at Meir Sports and Social Club.
Kieron McLaren, Rafiq's Queensberry's club-mate, lost out to a split decision in his light welterweight clash with national CYP champion Connor Parker (Royal Oak).
