JAKE JAMES is the first professional boxer to be trained by former World Lightweight champion Anthony Crolla. They teamed up in the summer of 2019 and the partnership has been impressive. In Jake’s first fight under Crolla, he stopped good Pole Kamil Mlodzinski in the final round and that is his stand out win so far even though it was a tough night.
James hasn’t boxed since December 2019 when he registered a shutout points win against Josue Bendana. The prospect suffered a serious hand injury in that fight and he underwent surgery from leading specialist Mike Hayton. It meant a few months on the sidelines, but the COVID-19 pandemic has added to his frustration.
James turned professional in December 2017 and in his fourth fight outpointed Ben Fields who won a Midlands Area title earlier in 2020.
Few would bet against James kicking on and picking up titles in the near future.
