Former Welwyn Garden City Boxing Club amateur Mitchell Smith has been crowned the new WBO European super-featherweight champion.

The 22-year-old defeated Hungarian Zoltan Kovacs by a unanimous points decision to take the title at the ExCeL London as part of the Bad Blood show which also featured Hatfield’s Billy Joe Saunders.

Smith, nicknamed the Baby Faced Assassin, was in control throughout the bout, despite suffering a hand injury early on, finding plenty of time to goad his opponent during the clash.
