Zelfa Barrett put in a clinically brilliant display below that has got the boxing world talking and standing up to take notice this weekend.
Unbeaten Zelfa Barrett captured the English super-featherweight title and put on a performance to remember this weekend against Chris Conwell in Leeds.
His power, accuracy and punch variation proved to be quality throughout the bout.
His effortless ability to vary his attacks to both head and body were a joy to watch at times, leaving the brave Conwell out of his depth.
24 year old Barrett, nephew of well known fighter Pat Barrett, continues to expand the boxing family name but also march on towards big things in the super-featherweight division.
Here is the moment Manchester’s Barrett closed the show with some sickening body shots to win by knockout last night:

Certainly a man to keep an eye on for the future in the grand scheme of world boxing. Speaking afterwards on his performance, Barrett said:
“I knew I got hit a few times but It didn’t hurt me so the respect went. In my head I had him like a (Marcos) Chino Maidana coming forward, but he didn’t expectations in my head. No disrespect to him – Chris or his trainer. Obviously when you fight you prepare for the worst. Obviously great fighters take great risks. I’m trying to be a great fighter by the way.”
With the victory Barrett improved his professional boxing record to 19-0.
