Colchester boxer Lewis Richardson continued his winning run with victory in his third fight of the year, this time while on international duty for England.

Richardson, 19, who represents Essex University Boxing Club, continued his preparations for next month’s national championships with a unanimous victory over Abdesslam Chabi, as England took on Sweden in Basingstoke.

“I was really pleased with the way I performed,” he said.

“With this, and two good wins at club shows so far this year, I am really upbeat with the way things are going, and getting myself set up nicely for the national championships, which I really want to do well in.”

And preparation for those championships continues at Harlow Dog Track this Sunday, when Lewis takes on Dan Gibson, from Norwich Boys, in the Eastern Counties finals of the Senior Elite Championships.
