4th round KO win over Chris Conwell - October 21st 2017
Super-Featherweight Zelfa Barrett is one of the brightest prospects in British boxing. Named the 'Brown Flash' after his uncle Pat ‘Black Flash’ Barrett who was a European Champion in his own right.
Making his debut in 2014, Barrett won his first fight via a four round decision. The British speedster had 7 fights in the first two years of his career despite picking up only two stoppages in his first seven bouts he soon discovered his power.
In 2016 Barrett also had seven fights finding a groove and proving what a monster power puncher he could be. He scored six KO's in those seven fights establishing himself as one of the biggest punchers in the division.
WORKING TOWARDS THE ENGLISH TITLE
The prospect continued to work towards gaining notoriety. Winning against tougher opposition most notably Eusebio Osejo who had faced several future World Champions. Barrett dropped his man twice in the fight, whilst also showing fantastic footwork and handspeed to beat his man via a wide unanimous decision.
SUPER-FEATHERWEIGHT ENGLISH TITLE
Most recently, he closed out 2017 with a KO win over Chris Conwell. Proving dominant over the Conwell, knocking him down and out in the fourth round. He won the vacant English Title with aplomb, this year may prove to be the quickest in Barrett's progression with perhaps a World Title at the tail end of the year.
