Watch Kelly Morgan celebrate winning the WBC Silver middleweight title on Friday night.


Morgan produced another superb performance in just her fourth professional fight to claim the first title of her career.

The 35-year-old Swindon boxer claimed a unanimous decision against tough undefeated German Lisa Cielas.

Fighting on Neilson Boxing’s first-ever professional show, Morgan had to dig deep against the dangerous German.

And although Cielas forced Morgan into a real battle, it was the Swindon boxer who produced the classier boxing display throughout.

Morgan particularly impressed in round five as she boxed and moved superbly, picking her shots cleverly along the way.

The Swindon fighter used her height and reach advantage well in the latter rounds to keep Cielas at bay.

Morgan probably saved her best until the eighth round, dominating the final two minutes in style.

Also on the New Beginning bill, Morgan’s stablemate Ryan Martin completed a superb 60-54 success against tough Lithuanian Arvydas Trizno while fellow Swindonian Luke Watkins climbed off the canvas in round two to stop Reinis Porozovs in the fifth round.

Des Newton and Akeem Ennis-Brown also picked up wins on the undercard while Ross Alexander’s bout was pulled earlier in the day.
