Walsall light welterweight, Luke Paddock, showed off his British Bronze Masters Title at Walsall FC’s Banks’s Stadium last week.

The 22 year-old Bloxwich stopped Gloucester’s Andy Harris in the 8th round at Walsall Town Hall on Saturday, 1st March and after picking up a first belt in just his sixth professional outing, watched Walsall draw 1-1 with Crewe last Tuesday and paraded his belt at half-time.

“It was great to go back with the belt” Paddock told “I went to a Walsall game before the fight and was introduced on to the pitch then.

“The Walsall fans were really supportive so it was nice to go back with the belt.

“It’s great to have the backing of my hometown team.”
