Coyle Shocks Gallagher To Win Prizefighter Welterweights

Unbeaten Johnny Coyle landed the Welterweight Prizefighter title after defeating pre-tournament favourite Paddy Gallagher in Saturday night's final at York Hall.

The 20-year-old Essex fighter overcame Jason Cook and Sam Eggington to book a final with Gallacher and scooped the 32,000 winner's cheque after twice sending his Irish opponent to the canvas during a points triumph.

It was a dramatic night for Gallagher, who was handed a second chance after losing his opening bout to Erick Ochieng, who was then forced to withdraw due to exhaustion.

The Belfast-born Commonwealth Games gold medallist then stopped Mark Douglas just 31 seconds into his semi-final to reach the final.

Novice Coyle came into the evening with just four professional fights under his belt and overcame Welsh veteran Cook with relative ease before struggling past Eggington.

There was nothing controversial about the final outcome, though, Coyle completely schooling Gallagher and collecting a comprehensive points win on all three cards.

Speaking to Sky Sports afterwards, Coyle said: "It feels unbelievable, it's hard to describe to be honest. The money is beautiful, but i've made history, i've only had four fights before this and i'm probably the youngest person to win this.

"I'm a traveller and we like to go to war sometimes."
