Streatham boxer Chris Bourke makes winning professional debut

Chris Bourke had no problems on his professional debut as the Streatham super-bantamweight stopped Ricky Leach in two rounds.

The former GB international, 24, did not take long to pick up a first victory on a show at Park Lane’s London Hilton in Mayfair.

Bourke said: “I boxed well.

“I didn’t really get hit and I was going in there knowing he doesn’t get stopped so it was what I wanted to do in order to make a statement and show my level and power.

“I am hoping to be back out in February.”
