Jimmy ‘proud’ after brawl in Crawley

Bermondsey’s Jimmy Haughney said he felt like he had been “run over” after losing out on points to Croydon’s Steve Albone on his debut in the Queensbury Boxing League last weekend.

Almost 100 people travelled to the K2 Arena in Crawley to support postman Jimmy, 38, a former Fisher amateur, and though he just fell short he said he had enjoyed “a good old tear-up” in the ring.

“I feel like I’ve been run over after Saturday’s fight, but I know I couldn’t have given any more and I’m proud of myself,” he said.

“I didn’t get the result I was after but it’s safe to say we had a good old tear up from the first bell to the last, and the noise the fans made for me was amazing”

“Boxing in such a huge arena in front of so many fans was the best feeling ever, and I’d just like to thank everyone for all of their support.”
