Swindon boxer Kelvin Young has blamed inactivity for the poor performance which saw him draw against journeyman Keiron Gray on Saturday night.

The 28-year-old, who has only fought twice this year, was disappointed with the result and felt he did enough to get the decision against Gray.

Although Young felt he should have got the win in the light heavyweight Challenge title contest, he accepts he must show a vast improvement in his next fight if he is ever to return to his best.

Young drew against Gray at Swindon’s Oasis Leisure on Saturday night and you can watch his reaction to the result by clicking on the video above.

Elsewhere on the Lights Out bill on Saturday, welterweight Ryan Martin lifted the Challenge title after beating Exeter’s Faheem Khan on points.

Swindon cruiserweight Luke Watkins also celebrated a points success, beating Tamas Bajzath after winning every round.

Danny Bharj, Garvey Kelly and Joe Beeden also won each round of their contests against Liam Richards, Danny Donchev and Qasim Hussain respectively.

Meanwhile in the fight of the night, Kelly Morgan defeated gutsy Hungarian Melinda Lazar 58-56 in what was a cracking contest.

Finally, Malmesbury’s Joe Hughes earned a first round stoppage after his opponent was in no position to fight on because of a cut.
