Bradley Townsend, of Oxford Boxing Academy, was in brilliant form as he captured the Home Counties crown with a crushing victory on the finals night in Luton.

Townsend stormed to an easy victory over Milton Keynes rival Sean Wood to win the class 4 (born 1995) lightweight title in this year’s Royal Navy-sponsored ABAE junior championship.

A succession of straight rights scythed their way through the Bucks teenager’s guard with his nose unable to hide the evidence by the end of the first session.

Townsend upped his work-rate even more after the interval and he cruised to an easy win.

Ben Kaluza, from Bicester, should also have seen his arm raised in triumph.

But he fell victim to a controversial one-point defeat aga-inst Andrew Doe, from Reading, in the class six (born 1993) welterweight decider.

Oxford’s George Stevens aims to join Townsend in the national last 16 at the Regal in Cowley on Sunday, April 10 when he tackles Levi Redmond, from Stevenage, in the delayed class 5 (born 1994) light-welterweight final this weekend.

Windrush Valley’s Jacob Mattock also bids for a Home Counties title at Wokingham, when he faces Terry O’Reilly, from Milton Keynes Victors, in the class 4 (born 1995) featherweight category.
