YOUNG prospect Kayd Dean added another win to his record in a return bout on Friday, writes Bob Cypher.

Boxing at Sarn, Dean faced Rhys Jones of Tonteg BC who he beat to take the Welsh title two weeks before.

And as his coach Steve Woods explained, the youngster performed better than in the previous fight.

“Jones’ coach asked me for a rematch straight after the Welsh final and I think they tried a different tactic for the rematch,” he said.

“They tried to box more than just toe-to-toe fighting but Kayd is a better boxer than Rhys, who is a fighter, and it worked better for us.

“To be honest Kayd's performance last week in Bristol wasn’t that good even though he got the win. He didn’t box very well.

“Everyone has good and bad days but this week he was totally different and a massive improvement.

“He won the bout by a unanimous decision in what was one of his best performances to date, picking his punches well, holding his position and generally dominating the fight.

“I couldn’t be prouder of his progress and I’m really looking forward to him competing next weekend at the Hull Box Cup, a tournament with more than 120 clubs entering from seven countries.

“Kayd will be joined by Pat Mullane, Kayd’s brother Cai, Gussy and Jerry Cash and Richard Gilheney.”
