Was a right battle and well worth a watch on YouTube

So proud of him because now he can grieve and come back stronger.

Got to work more behind that fantastic jab he has as that frustrates opponents and once that frustration boils over - then, BANG.

Got lighting quick hand speed which coupled with his great jab hopefully heíll continue up the ladder.

Close rounds but Nathan was given it by 2 rounds. Not biased or anything but it was deserved.

Toe to toe stuff at times.

Just popped round with his belt, spoke with him for a while and hes a little mad with himself for taking the shots that he did because he got away at times from his boxing skills. His trainer told him to start boxing again and thatís what he then did.

He knew that after his original opponent Ryan Aston had pulled out that Tom Stokes was always going to be a tougher opponent and so it proved.

In the latter rounds of the fight his extra fitness told, mind you though must help that he teaches nutrition etc etc at college.

Hoping to get a tv slot with a shot at the British title in October against Ďdid say his name but it escapes meí. Says the lad in question is a real tough nut and he knows itíll be a tough one and will need to be on his game. Says heís fought him before and feels heís capable of beating him.

No doubt no easy contests from here on in.

He can now properly grieve after losing his dad suddenly the day before he was informed heíll be fighting for the midlands title. Threw himself into preparation for that fight and I think he can now only improve after heís gone through the grieving process.

Unsure if it was yourself who said that Tom Stokes was a tough lad and if it was then so it proved.

Edit - No doubt it be on YouTube soon.

Just a shameless plug for on the box a boxing show which Nathanís best mate Dan Hewitt hosts in which heís built up a decent show and whoíll be ringside commentating on world title fight in a couple of weeks.

Luke Caci was also on the bill last night too a stablemate of Nathanís Ďdifferent weight divisioní whose got a promising future ahead of him.

Edit - not fought him as such but sparred with him.

Convincing win or a close one out of interest? The last video I saw of him he looked levels above the other lad
