Muslim Saeed won his first london title at the TA centre in Grove Park with a hard fought win in the Class A novice final over the tough and unorthodox J Thompson from the St Pancras boxing club, having won the SW london title last week Muslim followed that up with todays win in the under 60kg category.Muslim edged the contest with the superior quality shots in what was a low scoring bout, both boxers showed great determination and will to win and this seemed to spoil the quality of the contest as both boxers got stuck in to each other from the opening bell,so much so that the referee had to to intervene far too much and warn both boxers for constantly infringing the rules, Muslim came back at the end of the second round with a heavily bleeding nose having been head butted by his opponent, this only added to his determination and Muslim showed great heart to keep going until the final bell and have his hand raised as the champion.
