Oakey’s big-fight vow on ring return

Have your say

TONY OAKEY returned to the ring in style with a stoppage victory over American star Jeff Lacy.

Lacy was forced to retire on his stool at the end of the fifth round with a torn bicep in Bristol.

But that was after the Leigh Park Warrior rolled back the years with an incessant display against the former world champion and Olympic medallist.

Oakey’s pressure told as he dominated the contest with his double jabs and head shots delighting a raucous travelling crowd.

Look out for full reaction to Oakey’s win in The News next week.
