BUT for the pandemic, VIP’s 160lb hope Bradley Rea would have been pushing towards title contention. Bradley trains under Blain Younis at Ricky Hatton’s camp in Hyde and the two-weight world champion also keeps an eye on the prospect.
Manager Steve Wood has great belief that Bradley will reach British title level and perhaps go even further. He has been matched carefully with his best win a first round stoppage of tough Alistair Warren who couldn’t take razor sharp body shots delivered from his fists.
Rea hasn’t boxed since March when he outpointed Pavol Garaj on the Scott Quigg-Jono Carroll card.
He turned professional at the age of 20 after 97 amateur fights for St John’s ABC which is run by his Father. He won multiple titles including an ABA Schoolboy Championship.
