Nick Webb with second round KO win

Undefeatedheavyweight Nick Webb (7-0) made it seven in seven with his sixth KO win against the No.2 ranked heavyweight in the Czech Republic Tomas Mrazek (10-56-6) on Saturday 16th July at the Tolworth Recreation Centre in Surrey.


The 28-year-old from Chertsey crashed his counterpart to the canvas on four occasions en route to the second round stoppage win.

The unbeaten prospect, trained by Scott Welch in his Brighton gym, said of the performance, “I took my time, was patient, and enjoyed it.

“In the first round, I dropped him with a left hook, but they didn’t count it because the ref thought it was a slip. Then I dropped again with a left hook to the body; and then in the second round, I dropped him with an uppercut and then again with the body shot, and the ref stopped it.

“He threw a few shots but he never troubled me.”

Webb now boasts six stoppages from seven wins. The former ABA Elite finalist finished all of his first five opponents in theopening round, adding up to less than six minutes of ring-time.


Prior to this bout, his latest victory on the undercard of Haye Day II saw the 28-year-old taken the distance for the first time, winning 40-36 on points against Hari Miles (10-9)at The O2 on May 21st, live on freeview channel Dave.

“It was a good fight,” said Wild Webb of his only points win. “I’m a work-in-progress and still coming through.

“I got the experience in and I don’t think many up and coming fighters would fight someone like him.”
