Former Marshalls Park and Coopers Coborn pupil Johnny Fisher enjoyed a winning debut in the ring for Exeter University last Friday.

Fisher, a previous member at Harold Hill’s Five Star ABC, faced Portsmouth University rival Milton Vita in front of a packed crowd and began with plenty of energy.

And after forcing a standing eight count in the first round with a huge right hand, Fisher was announced as the winner when the referee decided Vita could not continue.

It proved a memorable night for Fisher, who had more than 40 people travel down from Essex to Devon to support him.

And the youngster will now look to build on his opening success when he boxes again next month.
