BRADLEY ‘STING’ REA waited patiently for his chance to come when the pandemic closed Britain and it was worth the wait.  His recent form has been sensational and cemented his status as one of the Middleweight division’s top prospects. 


He was offered a short notice job on a Matchroom show in March 2021 against fellow unbeaten prospect Lee Cutler and snatched his chance in sensational style. 
Cutler was floored three times and blown away by a devastating display of power punch in the first round.


It show that Rea is for real and after witnessing the demolition, promoter Eddie Hearn tweeted: “Wow huge statement from @bradrea_ - this kid can fight!!!” 
The Matchroom chief offered Rea a promotional deal, but the boxer and his team signed with new kids on the block, Boxxer which meant exposure on the Sky platform. 

 

He marked his first fight for them in October 2021 with a fantastic points win in Newcastle over Jez Smith, a contest that is one of the best British eight rounders of the year. 


His first fight of 2022 was again in front of the masses watching on Sky Box Office when he faced unbeaten Chris McCarthy on the Amir Khan v Kell Brook undercard. 
Rea returned to Newcastle in April for his second fight of 2022 and comfortably outpointed Lukas Ndafoluma over eight rounds. 
Manchester City fan Rea was he star of the undercard taking out his fancied rival inside two minutes of round one with a chilling left uppercut. 
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 insists that Bradley will reach British title level and go even further. 


He had been matched carefully until Cutler. Until then his best win was a first round stoppage of tough Alistair Warren who couldn’t take razor sharp body shots delivered from his fists. 
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.
