English Bantamweight Champion

MARC LEACH leapt from virtual obscurity in October 2020 with a shock win over Qais Ashfaq on a behind closed doors show that was live on Sky Sports.
Leach leapt up to super-bantamweight for the chance to take on Ashfaq in their British title final eliminator.
It was a magnificent performance from the Salford man who floored his rival twice. He refused to be denied and was a deserved winner after ten rounds.
The breakout win has booked him a crack at British 122lb champion Brad Foster, although Team Leach may look at Bantamweight options having boxed there throughout his career.
Leach turned professional in September 2014 and suffered a debut points loss to Bobby Jenkinson who four fights later became Commonwealth champion.
Marc has remained undefeated since with the only blemish, back in July 2018 when he travelled to Zimbabwe and drew against local fighter Tapiwa Tembo.
In May 2019, he picked up his English 118lb title with a clear points win over Brett Fidoe. It’s a title Leach still holds although he is yet to defend that crown.
Jamie Moore trained Leach, is a devoted family man and works 6pm-3am shifts at an Argos warehouse.
