LIVEWIRE FEATHERWEIGHT DYNAMO Louie Lynn is letting the featherweight division know that he is coming after more titles after successfully claiming the WBC International title over in Dubai in November.
After a long spell out with injury, the 27-year-old outpointed Asad Asif Khan to win his second WBC honour.
‘Loco’ Lynn first got on the title trail himself in March 2021 when he won the WBC International Silver belt by peppering the tough Spaniard Sebastian Perez for 10 rounds to win a clear points verdict.
Lynn got back to work in the September and defended his WBC belt against the previously also unbeaten Bradford star Amin Jahanzeb, with the pair topping the bill at the Copper Box Arena in the first of Frank Warren’s new prospect series being broadcast by BT Sport.
After a tough and absorbing encounter, Lynn got the nod from the three judges following the fight finishing a round early due to a serious cut to the forehead of the winning fighter.
The Banstead-based fighter has been pushed towards eliminator status for the British title, but his progress has been stalled by a shoulder injury that required surgery.
The ex-England international won the U20 Novices, then the 2017 ABA Elite Championship and the GB Championship before electing to enter the paid ranks.
