Bradley Skeete made a successful third defence of his WBO European Welterweight title against Stevie Williams last night at the Hilton Hotel in London.
Topping Frank Warren’s Nordoff Robbins charity fight night, the Penge supremo finished 2015 with a bang, beating Williams on points moving to 22-1 in the process.
Behind a dominant jab, Skeete kept Williams at bay taking the decision across all three judges’ scorecards.

‘Super’ Skeete has earmarked another shot at the British title for 2016, “He lived up to his nickname of the ‘Wallasey Express’ because he kept coming and coming. I thought that the referee was going to jump in when I started to land with clean shots and his face was starting to get smashed up, but he stuck in there. I’m pleased with the performance and ending the year undefeated with my title and now I can look towards a big 2016 and that British title.”
Slowly but surely, the 27 year old is climbing the World Rankings. Now up to 8 in the WBO’s order of merit in the Welterweight division, a solid 2016 could open some big bouts further down the line.
