A BLOODIED Jake Dyer’s British title aspirations were thwarted on Saturday.
Middleweight Dyer, 28, of Whittlesey, was in line for a British Masters Bronze super-middleweight title fight next season if he extended his winning run against Jack Sunderland, of Leeds, at the Peterborough Arena.
But Sunderland made an impressive start and early in the first round caught Dyer with a shot which left him bleeding from the nose.
Dyer fought to regain control of the bout but Sunderland’s speed was proving difficult to handle.
But the former soldier showed immense courage to stage a heroic final round comeback and earn a gutsy draw.
