Wisbech boxer tipped for the top after stunning Mid-Anglia display

WISBECH boxer Markos Mylozis has been tipped for the top after an �excellent display in his debut senior bout.

Mylozis, 17, had convincingly won just four junior bouts before stepping into the ring with the RAF’s Tom Windsor at a mid-Anglia show at St Ives.

But he dominated his older and more experienced �opponent and won a unanimous decision – before winning the show’s best boxer award.

Club secretary Saphire Lee said: “This lad is an up and coming star at the club and he boxed superb. He has got such a lovely temperament and he is a real credit to the club.

“A lot of people at the show, including the MC, came up to us at the end of the night and said Markos is a star in the making.”
