Light middleweight boxer Tony Milch maintained his 100 percent winning start to his professional career when he beat Ben Robinson at the Camden Centre.

Up against a heavier opponent, his 39-37 points win was all the more satisfying given that he boxed the majority of the fight with a broken hand which he sustained early on in the fight.

Reflecting on his latest win, he told jewishnews.co.uk: “The fight was great, it was good to be in there with a strong heavier opponent, to impose my skills [on him] and to get the win.

“I suffered the injury after a fast start, it was metacarpal damage on my left hand which made it tougher to get good solid shots off. It’s a classic boxer’s fracture and will set me back a month or so in terms of training and a fight schedule. But I was happy that I remained composed through the fight and delivered.”

Saying he’s extremely happy with how his fledgling professional career has gone to date, and looking to hopefully next box a six-round contest, he says: “I’m averaging a fight every couple of months and have been developing my skill set throughout. I was hoping to box next in April back at the Camden Centre, but due to the injury, May is now more realistic.”
